By scoring his 24th point in the Lakers/Sixers game, which amazingly came with 5:07 left in the 2nd quarter, Kobe Bryant moved into 5th place on the all-time NBA scoring list. At this moment he has 28,597 points, one more than former teammate Shaquille O'Neal. He drained 4 of his 5 three pointers, made all 4 free throw attempts, and shot 8 for 12 overall in order to move up another spot on the vaunted list.
At the timeout, Bryant embraced Derek Fisher, his longtime teammate. It also was nice that this moment could happen in his hometown of Philadelphia. So congratulations to Kobe Bryant. Whether or not you are a Laker fan, you have to enjoy the competitive nature of Bryant and his dedication to the game.
