Los Angeles Lakers mega-star Kobe Bryant now has another NBA record to his name. With 1:17 left in the first half of Wednesday night’s game against the New Orleans Hornets, Kobe cut through the lane and scored over center Robin Lopez to score the 30,000th and 30,001st points of his illustrious 17-year career. At 34 years, three months, and 12 days, that makes Bryant, the NBA scoring leader this season at 27.9 points per game, the youngest in the history of the NBA to hit the mark. The previous youngest, Wilt Chamberlain, was more than a year older when he accomplished the feat during the 1971-72 season.
