9th and counting

Kobe Bryant finished with 25 points in the Lakers’ 101-97 win over the Hornets on Friday and now has 26,720 points. Next on the list is Hakeem Olajuwon with 26,946 points.

“It’s a huge honor,” Bryant said after the game. “So much of my game is built on those that came before me, Oscar in particular. It’s a huge honor to be moving up that ladder.”

“I don’t know, we’ll see what happens,” Bryant said when asked how high he will go on the all-time scoring list. “The ladder I’m more focused on climbing is Bill Russell’s ladder, so we’ll see.”
