>Kobe Moves Into Eighth On All-Time Scoring List

29 Jan


Kobe (26,934) came into tonight’s game against the Sacramento Kings only 12 points behind Hakeem Olajuwon (26,946) for 8th overall on the all-time scoring list.

Earlier this month, Kobe passed Oscar Robertson for Ninth {Link}

Kobe passed ‘The Dream’ for sole possession of eighth all-time, just a day after being named starter of the NBA All Star Game for the 13th straight season.

Scary moment early in the first quarter, Kobe went down favoring his shoulder after trying to draw a charge against Tyreke Evans. Kobe took a couple extra seconds to recover and went on like nothing happened.

Kobe quickly scored 13 points in the first quarter to pass Hakeem for 8th. He did it on after a steal that lead to a wide-open dunk.
