Athlete QOTD: Kobe Bryant Wants His Sixth Ring With Lakers

Kobe Bryant surpassed Shaquille O’Neal‘s position on the all-time scoring list on Monday night when the Lakers took on the 76ers in Bryant’s hometown.

Bryant is now behind only Wilt Chamberlain, Michael Jordan, Karl Malone, and Kareem Abdul-Jabar. His new all-time score of 28,601 puts him in fifth place overall.

He spoke to Arash Markazi of ESPN LA after the milestone, eluding to the fact he plans on retiring as a Laker. He said,

“I’m not going jump ship to go chase a sixth ring. It’s going to happen here or it’s not going to happen.”

Bryant is in his 16th season in the NBA.
