Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Karl Malone, Michael Jordan, Wilt Chamberlain, and Kobe Bryant. That's it. Those are the people to reach the 30,000 point mark in the NBA and Kobe did it faster than anyone else. You can say Kobe's gunned too much, or that he's still not as good as any of those guys, or even that he's had great players around him for most of his career. All of that is nice and all, but this is indisputable. The Mamba's one of the greatest scorers to ever lace 'em up, point blank period. His resume in this regard speaks for itself and haters even have to respect it. P.S. He's not slowing down either, Kobe's averaging 30 PPG this season which is his most since '06 and currently tops the league for 2013.
