Someone said everytime Bean has a milestone we lose, shoot yall weren't kidding. I doubt Kobe cared about getting 30 K, he doesn't care about much these days but winning you can see it in his media frustrations.

30,000 points. INSANE

Only 1409 from passing Wilt. He can do that by averaging 22 the rest of the year

You shoot too much Kobe. Scoring 30k points is not good for the team. You're so selfish.

Can we get a Kobe 30,000 wallpaper like the 15,000 Pau one?
I should get an assist for that. It's an intentional pass to oneself, so it's an assist. That way people can't say all I do is shoot.

Close to perfect game for him. Didn't force anything, and was nearly unstoppable offensively. Also showed the most intense defense i've seen so far this year from him, 3stls. Truly lead this team with his passion. Great game from kobe.

Cuz somone finally decided to call him out on it:

KEVIN DING ‏@KevinDing
Dwight yelled at Kobe for not rotating to Lopez. Kobe yelled back at Dwight, pointing toward the other end of the court.


KEVIN DING ‏@KevinDing
Now in the timeout huddle, Dwight is standing up and pointing a finger in the face of the seated Kobe.


KEVIN DING ‏@KevinDing
Dwight did go slap Kobe's hand after Kobe made a free throw. Kobe's D improved after timeout. ... NO 23, LA 20 after 1Q.


Mike Trudell ‏@LakersReporter
Mike D'Antoni said Kobe was "up and down" last night. The down part involves mostly lack of defensive rotations, as Howard has mentioned.

Kobe Bryant youngest to 30,000

By Dave McMenamin | ESPNLosAngeles.com

NEW ORLEANS -- Kobe Bryant's ultimate place amongst basketball's greats may be up for debate. But there is no denying Bryant's spot as one of the all-time best scorers after he became the youngest player in NBA history to reach 30,000 career points Wednesday.

Lakers star Kobe Bryant became the youngest player in NBA history to score 30,000 points, reaching the milestone on a slashing right-handed runner late in the second quarter against the Hornets on Wednesday night.

Bryant made a slashing right-handed runner in the lane with 1:16 remaining in the second quarter against the New Orleans Hornets, giving him 30,001 career points at just 34 years, 104 days old.

Bryant surpassed Wilt Chamberlain's previous record of 35 years, 179 days. The Los Angeles Lakers star scored 17 points in the first half against the Hornets, who owned a 48-47 halftime lead.

Bryant joins Chamberlain (31,419 points), Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387), Karl Malone (36,928) and Michael Jordan (32,292) as the only five players in NBA history to reach the 30,000-point plateau.

"It's a huge honor to say the least," Bryant said earlier this week as he approached the milestone. "Whenever you're hearing those kind of names and you think about the amount of players that have played this game and to be in that kind of company, it's always extremely, extremely special."

NBA commissioner David Stern was present at New Orleans Arena to witness Bryant's achievement.

"I want to shake his hand. I think Kobe is, as a talent and a competitor, he's up there on the pedestal with Michael Jordan as one of the greatest," Stern told reporters before the game. "Kobe has such an extraordinary run playing at the highest level for so long with the championships to prove it in a league that is extremely competitive.

"Kobe and the Lakers have been an important part of the league, and I wish him well for this season and beyond."

Bryant was the fifth-fastest player -- in terms of games played -- to reach the milestone, needing 1,179. Chamberlain was the fastest at 941 games, followed by Jordan (960), Abdul-Jabbar (1,101) and Malone (1,152). Bryant also was the youngest player to reach the 20,000-point mark.

"That just means he's old. He's played a lot," Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni joked before the game. "I think it's great. Not many people can get that achievement. That's something he's earned and deservedly so. That's great."

Four of the five names of the 30,000-point list played for the Lakers at one point of their career, a fact not lost on Bryant, who has spent all 17 years of his career suiting up for the purple and gold.

"This is a franchise, like I've said in the past, guys whose jerseys hang up in the rafters are some of the all-time greats," Bryant said earlier this week. "Not just greats for the franchise. I don't know if there's any other organization that can say that."

I'm happy to hear that. If Kobe can bring it out of Howard on the offensive end, maybe Howard can bring it out of Kobe on the defensive end. Howard has some testicles.

Inside Kobe was smiling to be yelled at and called out, outside he had to react, but inside hats the type of [Swearing is not permitted at Clublakers. You must edit this post prior to submitting.] he has begged for for year from Pau, and the same kind of [Swearing is not permitted at Clublakers.

Interesting stuff about Howard calling Kobe on his D. I know in his 17th year he can't be expected to go all out all the time on D, but he can certainly do better than he has been and he showed it in the 2nd-4th quarter tonight. Dwight's not a kid anymore, he SHOULD step up and be a leader and hold people accountable on D.

Going to back to the 30,000 point though, man who does this in their 17th season? I can only think of a few guys this good this long, Kareem and Malone being the ones that come to mind immediately. Kobe's leading the league in scoring in his 17th season, his game just doesn't seem to drop off at all. I look at a player like LeBron, and even with how great he is, will he be able to do this? When his athleticism and leaping ability goes will he be able to sustain that greatness for this many years and reach 30,000? I'm not seeing it, or in anyone else out there right now either honestly, it takes an extremely special player to get to this point.
