Kobe Bryant is widely regarded as one of the best scorers in the NBA and he’s arguably one of the best of all time, too. He is currently 5thon the NBA all-time scoring list with 29484 points scored in his 16-year career, 5000 points more than any other active player. Bryant stands right behind NBA legends Wilt Chamberlain, Michael Jordan, Karl Malone and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on the all-time scoring list. The Lakers guard needs almost 9000 points to surpass current all-time-leading-scorer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who spent his 20-year NBA career with the Milwaukee Bucks and the Los Angeles Lakers.
The man formerly known as Lew Alcindor played 1560 games in the league, averaging 24.6 points-per-game en route to a grand total of 38387 points scored. Kobe has played 1161 games so far , with an average of 25.4 points-per-game. Kareem retired after the 1988-1989 NBA season at the age of 41. Kobe Bryant turns 34 today (August 23rd) and, assuming he keeps playing until he is 41, just like Abd...

So, Kobe Bryant’s celebrated his 34th birthday on Thursday, and, as they are wont to do, ESPN attempted to zany and irreverent by doing a “Tale of the Tape” between Kobe, a/k/a The Black Mamba, and a real-live black mamba. You know, for kicks. While it seems like an exercise in futility to actually break [...]
When we think of the physical condition professional athletes have to maintain, we tend to think of them as having extremely strict diets. While that is often the case and certainly helps contribute to their success, it doesn’t mean star athletes don’t enjoy junk food every so often just like the rest of us. In fact, some of them even like to indulge on game day.
In his guest...
