CLEVELAND — Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant is the 15th player in NBA history to reach 25,000 career points and the youngest to hit the milestone.
Bryant reached the mark by making one free throw late in the second quarter of Thursday's showdown against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
At 31 years, 151 days, Bryant got to 25,000 in 35 fewer days than Wilt Chamberlain, who finished his career with 31,419 points.
Earlier, Bryant was voted into his 12th All-Star game.
Next on the list for Bryant is Lakers great Jerry West (25,192) and former Indiana Pacers guard Reggie Miller (25,279).
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is the NBA's career leader with 38,387 points. (AP)
