Kobe Bryant Pays Tribute to LeBron James After Getting Passed on All-Time Scoring List

LeBron James Lakers

Kobe Bryant gave props to LeBron James on Twitter after the four-time MVP passed him on the all-time scoring list on Saturday night.

Bryant and James had mutual respect for one another while the two of them were playing against each other before the latter retired in 2016.

James accomplished the feat during the Lakers matchup versus the Philadelphia 76ers.

With 7:23 remaining in the third quarter, the 15-time All-Star drove down the lane for a layup which gave him 33,644 points for his career, passing Bryant’s 33,643 for No. 3 on the NBA’s all-time scoring list.

The next players on the career scoring list that James will look to surpass are Karl Malone (36,928) and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387).
