The 36-year old Bryant has finally passed His Airness (32,292 points), securing third place in the NBA's all-time scoring list. He notched point number 32,293 on a free throw in the second quarter of a game against the Minnesota Timberwolves earlier today.
Watch Kobe as he reaches the milestone:

Hats off to the 'Wolves for courteously calling a timeout to let Kobe celebrate and soak in this awesome moment.
