Kobe Bryant's shooting percentages are historically bad (for a star)

- by

Basketball legend Kobe Bryant is on course to surpass Michael Jordan as the third-leading scorer in NBA history, but it's safe to say he's not getting there in the most glorious way. His team sits at the bottom of the Western Conference with a 3-13 record and Bryant himself, while leading the league in scoring, is shooting blanks at an alarming rate.

Sixteen games into the season, Kobe is making just 37.9 percent of his many attempts. These numbers are historically bad not just for him, but NBA-wise. No other player averaging 25-plus points per game aside from Allen Iverson has shot worse percentages in the last 55 years.

Bryant is missing 14.12 shots per contest, which is one of the worst marks this century, but still better than the nearly 15 he missed on average in 2005-06, the first season in which Kobe finished as the NBA's top scorer with 35.4 ppg.
