Kobe Bryant Los Angeles Lakers NBA

All-time Lakers scoring Leader

1 Feb, 2010

Bryant¬†becomes the Laker’s franchise leading scorer in a regular season match against the Memphis Grizzlies, passing Jerry West. The achievement came on a dunk in the 3rd quarter. Bryant has 44 points for the night, but the Lakers end up losing the match.

It’s a great honor to say the least [because] of the great players that have played here and the tradition we have. [West] taught me so much when I was 17 years old. He showed me a lot about the game, the jump shot and spin moves and all the others.¬†Even though it’s me passing him in the record books, it’s still us, and it’s still Magic and all the other great players.
