We here at TheLakersNation.com have covered Kobe for many years. We would like to say congratulations to Kobe’s 100th 40 point career game. Putting him third all time in NBA history behind Wilt and Jordan.
It came on a deep, deep three-ball in the closing moments on a night where Kobe put on an offensive show. Congrats KB24! Strike ‘em with that killer venom mamba!
1. Wilt Chamberlain (271)
2. Michael Jordan (173)
3. Kobe Bryant (100)
We are truly blessed to witness greatness night in and night out. Just take a moment to appreciate one of the most fierce competitors in league history, Kobe Bryant!
Additionally, the lethal scorer is nearing 2nd all time in lakers history as he needs 15 points to tie Kareem Abdul Jabbar. 16 for second place.
- Jerry West- 25,192 points
- Kareem Abdul Jabbar- 24,176 points
- Kobe Bryant- 24,161 points
Kobe said this after the game…
Kobe on his groin: “I wanted to come out and have a good game and have people stop asking about it.” 40 points works.
