Kobe Bryant Becomes Lakers All-time Leading Scorer (Video)

Kobe Climbs North of West on Scoring List [WSJ]

Kobe Bryant slam-dunked his way past Jerry West in the third quarter on Monday night to become the Los Angeles Lakers’ all-time scoring leader. It was also fitting that Bryant’s point total in L.A.’s 95-93 loss to Memphis, 44, matched West’s number. He also passed West against the Grizzlies, the team West took over after he stopped running the Lakers. Bryant’s career total of 25,208 points places him 14th on the all-time list.
