Teammates serenade Kobe after he passes MJ on all-time scoring list
Monday December 15th, 2014

Kobe Bryant passed Michael Jordan on the all-time scoring list on Sunday night, and what did 18 years and 32,310 points earn him? A cake and some streamers.

The Los Angeles Lakers were on the road for their six-point win over Minnesota, so the team celebrated Kobe grabbing third place on the all-time scoring list on the team plane, with some decorations that look like they were bought at a dollar store and cake.

Kobe looks like he is trying, and failing, to enjoy the celebration and teammate Jordan Clarkson's serenade. At least he did not scream any expletives at anyone.
