With a pair of free throws in the second quarter Sunday evening, Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant moved up one notch on the all-time NBA scoring ledger, taking over third place and passing Michael Jordan. Bryant, 36, entered Sunday's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves needing nine points to surpass Jordan, who had 32,292 points over 15 seasons. He passed Jordan by making both his free throws after being fouled by T'wolves rookie Zach LaVine on a drive with 5 minutes, 24 seconds. USA Today Sports
