Well, here at the Kobe Watch we've witnessed some important milestones as Kobe has chipped away at the list of all-time scorers in NBA history.
Kobe now sits fifth on the all-time career scorers list in NBA history and may, health pending, one day surpass Kareem and Karl Malone atop the list, while passing Wilt and MJ is just a matter of time.
Meanwhile, in all-star competition, Kobe now holds the all-time record with 271 points, and he did it in true Kobe fashion by playing through injury to snare the record even with a nasal fracture.
Congrats Kobe. Keep up the good work, you've still got a few all-star years ahead of you to distance yourself from the competition.
The Kobe Watch continues.
