Kobe Bryant Stats

For his career, Kobe averaged 25.0 points, 5.2 rebounds, 4.7 assists, and 1.4 steals per game over 1,346 contests, all of which were played in purple and gold.

With 33,643 career points, Bryant sits fourth on the NBA’s all-time scoring list behind only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Karl Malone, and LeBron.

James has followed in Bryant’s footsteps, as he helped lead the Lakers to a championship last season, and is looking to repeat this season, which is something Kobe managed to do three times in his career.
