This week’s individual has been doing it day in, day out for 17 seasons now, but he gets his due honour for finally breaking the hallowed 30,000-point ceiling.

Top high school basketball player, youngest Slam Dunk Contest winner, 5-time NBA champion, most All-Star Game points, twice Olympic gold medallist – you’ve heard of Kobe Bryant accomplishing it all. But his 29 points this week against the New Orleans Hornets (above) elevated him into unique company – only four others have scored more than 30k.

Coming into the game, the 34-year-old only needed 13 points, and NBA’s current scoring leader was always going to get there. Over a career of impossible dunks and turnaround jumpers, he did it relatively simpler this time, driving past Al-Farouq Aminu before dropping it over Robin Lopez.

Click on as we look back on Bryant’s milestones, and find out who the four he’s chasing are.
