A Milestone for the Black Mamba!

Just one more box needs to be checked off for Kobe Bryant to officially earn his place as Michael Jordan's rightful the NBA's Greatest Of All Time.

Props to Kobe Bryant for surpassing Michael Jordan on the NBA's all-time scoring list tonight! The L.A. Lakers veteran achieved this milestone during today's 100-94 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves...when Bryant made two straight free throws (the second one earning him his 32,293rd point) in the 2nd quarter and the game was briefly halted so that teammates, opposing players and the coaching staff could congratulate KB24 on his achievement. Michael Jordan ended his career (both with the Chicago Bulls and the Washington Wizards) with 32,292 points, while Kobe has now amassed 32,310 points after tonight's victory. All that's left for the Black Mamba to do to cement his place as Jordan's rightful heir as the greatest player in the NBA is to win a 6th championship ring. Sadly, I don't think Bryant will achieve that feat with this current Lakers squad. Despite the fact that he deserves props for making a game-winning 3-pointer against the San Antonio Spurs last Saturday, Nick Young still gets on my nerves. That is all.

One proof that Kobe wanted to emulate His Airness.

The Black Mamba and Air Jordan defend against each other during a Lakers game in Kobe's early years.
