Kobe Bryant made history last night. He gave the Lakers a 2nd win!
The 36 year old league leader in scoring also scored 28 points (and shot better than 50%!) giving him 1 point more than 32,000 which is just 291 points shy of catching The GOAT.
If Kobe can continue to average 27 points per game then he will probably pass MJ sometime in early December – possibly the December 9th game against the Kings which would be cool since Shaq will probably be there and because of the history Kobe has had with the Kings.
It was also nice to see Kobe reach the milestone last night on a trademark shot.
Let the countdown begin!
