Kobe Bryant - 10th Leading Scorer of All Time

Kobe Bryant 10th on NBA scoring list
By Dave McMenamin
LOS ANGELES -- Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant made a driving layup with 6:43 remaining in the third quarter against the Detroit Pistons to give him 15 points for the game and 26,669 for his career, moving him into 10th place on the NBA's all-time scoring list.
Bryant, in his 15th season, passed Dominique Wilkins (26,668) who played 15 seasons with Atlanta, Boston, San Antonio, Orlando and theLos Angeles Clippers.
"That's a great honor," said Bryant, who cited Wilkins' dunks and jumping ability as his favorite things to watch as a kid, after the Lakers beat the Pistons 108-83.
Next on the list is Oscar Robertson with 26,710. If Bryant maintains his 25.4 points per game average and plays the final 47 games of the regular season, he will finish the year with 27,863 points, placing him sixth all-time behind Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387), Karl Malone (36,928), Michael Jordan (32,292), Wilt Chamberlain (31,419) and Shaquille O'Neal (28,500 and counting).
