Kobe Bryant is the youngest player in NBA history to reach the 20,000 point plateau. Bryant's 3-pointer today in the early third quarter of the LA Lakers' game against the NY Knicks 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.
