#10 Bryant Become Lakers’ All-Time Leading Scorer – February 1, 2010 at Memphis
George Mikan … Elgin Baylor … Jerry West … Gail Goodrich … Wilt Chamberlain … Kareem Abdul-Jabbar … Magic Johnson … Shaquille O’Neal … and Kobe Bryant.

With 44 points in a routine regular season contest at Memphis, Bryant surpassed West as the greatest scorer in Lakers history with 25,198 points. Bryant, who finished the 2009-10 season with 25,790 points, currently ranks 12th on the league’s all-time list and isn’t planning on stopping any time soon.

Should Bryant average roughly what he has the past two seasons (roughly 27.0 ppg), he would vault all the way up to sixth on the list, with only Shaq, Wilt, Michael Jordan, Karl Malone and Kareem left ahead of him on the list.
