Kobe has had ONLY 6 NBA seasons with more than 2000 points...either due to lack of playing time or injuries he has only 6. thats amazingly low considering he is one of the greatest if not the greatest scorer this game has ever seen.
LeBron for example at 24 has already had 5 straight seasons of 2000+ points total and he is probably going to add another 8-10 which makes him the absolute favorite to break Kareem's or hopefully by then Kobe's record.
It'll be disappointing when Kareem's record is broken for me. Hopefully it'll be Kobe who does it. When LeBron beats that, which he most likely will, it'll be a sad day for Laker fans. Also hopefully at that point, he won't have won anything (unless for some reason he's a Laker) so the record will be moot.
I am not sold that LBJ will break Kareems record to be honest. He uses physical gifts right now. I am not sure (at this point) he has the ability to modify his game throughout the seasons. I also wonder how many year he will play.
