The LA Laker is now the youngest player to reach 30k points in his career and joins illustrious company in doing so.
If Kobe Bryant was not already a legend in your eyes then he certainly must be now. Not only has he joined Wilt Chamberlain, Michael Jordan, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Karl Malone as the fifth member of the 30,000 points club but he is the youngest member to hit the landmark milestone.
Here is a NBA video of the moment...
Here is some of the reaction on Twitter to the LA Laker's superstars huge achievement...

Really a shame that Kobe Bryant only has 1 MVP trophy. Other 4 guys with 30K pts (Kareem, MJ, Wilt, Malone) combined for 17 MVP awards— Michael Lee (@MrMichaelLee) December 6, 2012
