NEW YORK (AP) -Kobe Bryant became the youngest player in NBA history to reach 20,000 points when he made a 3-pointer Sunday early in the third quarter of the Los Angeles Lakers' game against the Knicks.
The basket gave Bryant 20 points and allowed him to reach the milestone at 29 years, 122 days. Before him, only Wilt Chamberlain (29, 134) and Michael Jordan (29, 326) had gotten there before turning 30.
Bryant needed 811 games to reach 20,000 points, 15th-fastest in league history. Chamberlain did it in 499 games.
