Kobe Bryant: Youngest to 26,000 Career Points

by November 12, 2010

The Black Mamba had a rough shooting night in the losing effort, but he did manage to notch yet another historical milestone. From the Daily News: “Kobe Bryant went into tonight’s game against the Denver Nuggets needing 17 points to reach 26,000 for his career, the 12th player in league history to reach the mark. He also would have been the youngest, at 32 years, 80 days, faster than Wilt Chamberlain (32 years, 114 days). Bryant hit the milestone when he scored on a short turnaround jumper in the opening moments of the second half.”
