LOS ANGELES LAKERS VIDEOS

With a pair of free throws in the second quarter of the Lakers game on Sunday, Kobe Bryant passed Michael Jordan on the NBA’s all-time scoring list. To celebrate, the Lakers decorated his seat and brought him a cake on the flight home — a sweet gesture for the star. He looked … sort of happy? Definitely not as happy as we would look if someone had brought us cake — or as many of his teammates whose eyes follow the cake to Bryant’s seat do. For The Win

Ramona Shelburne: Kobe is some 4000 points away from Malone and 6000 points from KAJ. I asked him after the game if he'd play long enough to catch either one. Kobe laughed & said, "Oh my god. Do you have any idea how much my body hurts day to day? I’m no spring chicken. It’s good to be out here." Twitter @ramonashelburne

Kobe Bryant got a special welcome when he boarded the team plane in Minnesota, it was all decked out just for him! There's good reason to celebrate too after Kobe passed Michael Jordan for third in the NBA all time scoring list. SB Nation

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.
