Kobe Bryant Joins Many Legends With Many Missed Shots


Kobe Miss

November 11th, 2014 Kobe Bean Bryant became the NBA’s all time missed field goal shots leader with 13,418 missed shots. A record some people may have believed Bryant already held but it became official when Bryant passed Boston Celtics legend, John Havlicek who ended his career with 13,417 missed field goal shots. Kobe wasn’t done after breaking the record ending the game with 13,421 missed shots with many more coming soon.

Kobe Bryant leads a legendary list of players who have missed plenty of shots in their time.

In second place is Hall of Famer, 8 Time NBA Champion and 13 Time All Star, John Havlicek with 13,417 missed shots. In third place stands Hall of Famer, 12 Time All Star and NBA Champion, Elvin Hayes with 13,296.Fourth place belongs to Hall of Famer, 2 Time MVP and 14 Time All Star, Karl Malone with 12,682.5th on the list is Hall of Famer, NBA Leading Scorer, 6 Time MVP, 6 Time champion, and 19 Time All Star, Kareem Abdul Jabbar with 12,470. Last but not least is Hall of Famer, 5 Time MVP, 6 Time Champion and 14 Time All Star, Michael Jordan with 12,345.

Not including Kobe Bryant this amazing and legendary list has accumulated: 5 Hall of Famers, 21 NBA Championships, 13 MVP Trophies, 72 All Star Appearances, and 1 NBA All Time Leading Scorer.

Not only have these players achieved so much but all of them reside in the Top 15 Scorers in NBA history. Leading the way is Kareem (38,387), #2) Karl Malone (36,928), #3) Michael Jordan (32,292), #4) Kobe Bryant (45,811 and counting), #8) Elvin Hayes (27,313), and #13) John Havlicek (26,395).

The fact that these players reside in the Top 15 Scorers in NBA history means they must have made a lot of shots, which makes sense why they all reside in the Top 10 Most Field Goals Made in NBA History. Once again leading the way is Kareem (15,837), #2) Karl Malone (13,528), #4 Michael Jordan (12,192), #6) Kobe Bryant (11,121 and counting), #7) Elvin Hayes (10,976), and #10) John Havlicek (10,513).

Another statistic all of these players have in common is that they are all in the Top 25 Minutes played in NBA history. Leading the way is Kareem (57,446), #2) Karl Malone (54,852), #4) Elvin Hayes (50,000), #10) John Havlicek (46,471), #12) Kobe Bryant (45,811 and counting), and #24) Michael Jordan (41,011).

A funny statistic is that only 1 of these players reside in the Top 50 in Field Goal Percentage Made which is Kareem Abdul Jabbar at #15 with 55.9%. A lot of shots were made and missed by all of these players but only Kareem was the most efficient, which was due to being feet away from the basket most of the time.

It’s obvious that all these players are amazing scorers but it may surprise a lot of you that 4 of these elite scorers reside in the Top 50 NBA Assists Leaders of All Time. Leading the way at #29 is John Havlicek (6,144), #32) Kobe Bryant (5,949 and counting), #40) Kareem (5,660), and #42) Michael Jordan (5,633).

All in all Kobe Bryant is in great company when it comes to missing shots, making shots, minutes played, and assists. The numbers don’t lie and whether you hate Kobe or love Kobe for his most recent accolade, he is still amongst legends who have made the game what it is today. So as Kobe continues to miss shots and make shots he is only doing what others have done before him and is racking up many achievements along the way.

The Lakers Found A Point Guard: Kendall Marshall


kendall

For those new to the the second year point guard, Kendall Marshall was one of colleges best point guards 2 years ago at the University of North Carolina. He became the 13th pick in the 2012 NBA Draft by the Phoenix Suns. It was a pick that told Steve Nash his time in Phoenix was over. Nobody would think that a year later they would become Lakers teammates. With the Suns he averaged 3 points, 3 assists in 15 minutes as the team finished in last place with a 25-57 record. Marshall was traded to the Washington Wizards where he was released and picked up by the Delaware 87ers of the NBA Development League.

The Delaware 87ers of the NBA Development League is where the Los Angeles Lakers found him as he averaged 19.4 points and 9.6 assists. As many know, the Lakers were having a plague of injuries to their point guards and were going to be without a point guard for weeks to come. Last night, Kendall Marshall received his first start against the Utah Jazz and didn’t disappoint. Marshall was the perfect point guard as he scored 20 points on 8-12 shooting, 6 rebounds, 15 assists and ONE TURNOVER. The Lakers won their first game of 2014, 110 to 99. Marshall became the first player since Kobe Bryant in February 2002 to reach 20 points and 15 assists in a game. The most important thing is the Lakers won but it was fun watching Kendall Marshall help a team that really needed it. It’s only the first start but there will be many more to come as the other point guards heal. Best of luck Kendall.
