Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant reached another career milestone last night passing Shaquille O’Neal for fifth place on the NBA’s all-time scoring list last night.
Bryant scored 28 points but was held to just four points in the second half of last night’s 95-90 road loss to the Philadelphia 76ers.
Atlanta native Lou Williams scored 14 of his 28 points in the fourth quarter including the go-ahead three-pointer to seal the victory for Philly.
Bryant, a 33-year-old future Hall of Famer has 28,601 career points.
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar sits atop the all-time list with 38,387 points.
#2 Karl Malone (36,928), #3 Michael Jordan (32,292) and #4 Wilt Chamberlain (31,419)are also ahead of Bryant.
After the game Bryant said other accomplishments were more important than passing Shaquille O’Neal for fifth all-time on the NBA’s scoring list.
