Update: Kobe Bryant: 30,000 Points Scored

Kobe is exactly 100 points shy of 30,000...will be only the fifth player in NBA history to accomplish the feat.

If he was a real man he'd get it done tonight.

I think he'll reach it on Wednesday against the Hornets. Incredible feat. The legend keeps growing.

So we're expecting Kobe to be sitting #3 all time when all is said and done I assume?

The days of 81 against a bad Toronto team are far behind Kobe.

It depends. If he really retires in two seasons, then yes. But I just don't think he'll retire in two years. Not when he's playing this well right now in his 17th season.

I would agree with this statement.

There was a time a few years ago that I thought he would be able to beat Kareem's record, but the drop-off in the last two years has been steep. He has basically spent half of 34 years in the NBA, and I don't care how conditioned you are, its going to catch up to you.

I can't see him getting 6300 more points.

Its pretty surprising how well hes held up. If you look at other straight out of highschoolers, you'd expect him to have fallen off a lot harder.

Yeah unless he decides to continue playing beyond his current contract.

Declining? Yes. Steep? No.

Even if he plays beyond two more seasons I don't see him catching Karl either.

20 x 82 x 4 = 6560

so he could but is he going to stick it out for 4 years and be satisfied with going from 25+ a game to 15+ and not being the man? would that even be good for the team?
