I guess he can hold on to it for about 4 or 5 more years.:D

Wilt and Shaq's records can be beaten. Rest? no.

If you can beat Wilt then you can beat Jordans. Its like one season of 11 ppg ahead.

Also I believe Lebron and Durant have a good chance of getting up there.

I wonder what Wilt, Kareem and Jordan's numbers would be if they never went to college... and came straight out of high school.

All those 50+ point games really helped him get ahead quick

That's a good question. Wilt didn't start playing in the NBA till he was like 23. Imagine if he started at 20.

Congrats to Kobe.

I don't think it would bother him in the very least in all honesty. If something like that would be a bother to him I don't think he would have even bothered to retire the first two times.

Congrats to Kobe.

He could have. He was getting NBA recruiters in his senior year at Overbrook. In his autobiography, he said Red Auerbuch tried to make him go to Harvard so he could use territorial draft pick on him.

Why would that even matter when MJ doesn't even have the record for that? The only ones that would matter would be if someone breaks his 30.12 ppg in the season careerwise or 33.45 ppg in the playoffs (no one else even averages 30.00 ppg in the playoffs careerwise).

I dont agree with Lebron and Durrant getting in this class! Lebron really relies on his strength, power, and athletic ability! Has a medicore jumper and no post game. Once he loses the athletic ability he will fall off and thats assuming he can stay healthy for years to come. Remember Kobe has not missed mamy games and played through a lot and his game is so well rounded he has been a ble to be successful without his young legs. It takes a lot of skill and health to get to where Kobe is. Durrant has a better chance then Lebron IMO but they are so far from these points to even consider them lol

BUT......i will say Lebron, Durrant, Melo ect have a HUGE advantage in the fact your not a lot to play defense anymore lol with Durrant and company averaging 14 Ft's a game and cant fart by them without a call.

Congrats to Kobe.I dunno, I'm just going by the other comments Jordan has made about Kobe.

Congrats to Kobe.

lebron is going to end beating all these records again in a couple of years

Lebron is obviously going to break this record he has the youngest to reach every thousand point milestone from 1-17 and will probably get youngest to 18/19 this year

He was awful tonight, probably the 2nd worst game I've ever seen him play... but it wasn't that meaningful and he got to 28 K, so congrats Bean!

One of the greatest of all-time

if he continues with his excellent shooting streak lately 12/45 in last three games he is not gonna break any more records....

Lebron and Durant won't break any of these records if the world ends this year.

it's a shame he did it on one of the worst performances of his career. he wanted it so bad but he couldn't buy a bucket

i wonder if he kobe is going to try to play until he is 38 or 39 trying to break Kareem's record?

will he be willing to play a supporting role like kareem did?

A milestone, but Kobe is shooting for bigger game.

All Kobe's has to be is the closer in his later years. He could easily average 20-22 ppg for the rest of his career, which I assume is for 4-5 more years.

01-02-2012, 09:34 AM
and he shoots 6 for 28...

I may be in the minority here, but what I think is more important is number of games taken not age it happened at.

Did he do it in less games or more? Was it a large number? Was it the exact same amount of games?

In that case, no one beats Wilt. Jordan comes close.

My thinking is if you enter the league at 18 and someone else does it at 22 then of course you do it younger, assuming you are capable of doing it.


Kobe has played in 1,109 games, Wilt played in 1,045 total games and had more points.

This is a huge accomplishment and deserves applause for it but youngest ever isn't as important as quickest.

Agree with the fact that number of games is more significant than age. Especially when there is a restriction now on when you can come into the league.

Kobe is one of the greatest competitors of all time and this is certainly an accomplishment, but as others have already pointed out, it's not nearly as impressive when you consider he started playing at 18 and that he's already played more games than Michael and Wilt, but has scored significantly fewer points. If MJ doesn't take two years off and doesn't retire at 34 when he still had miles left on his legs, he would have destroyed Kareem's record.

Kobe's in his 16th consecutive season and he's done amazing things in his career, but no matter how long he stays in the league, how many points he scores or how many rings he gets, he'll never surpass Michael Jordan as the GOAT.

something tells me this guy is not going to retire until he breaks kareems record or until he cant walk anymore

kobe wont retire until he is like 39-40 specially after howard gets traded to the lakers.

Longevity is an important part of the game. You cannot fault Kobe for having the type of longevity Wilt or MJ did not have. Its not easy to play in the league for 16-18 years and dominate throughout. MJ didnt do it, neither did Wilt. Kobe on the otherhand is gonna do it, barring injury. Theres a lot to be said and admired for that.
