Kobe Bryant Sets Record With 6,000 Assists
Kobe Bryant has become the first NBA player to have 6,000 assists and over 30,000 points in professional NBA games. The 36 year old LA Lakers star is known for his record setting and great game play.
Kobe had this to say: "It's a huge honor. It means I pass more than people say,"
Regarding how he evaluates the 6000-assist plateau against his scoring accolades, Bryant said: "One is more in your control than the other. I prefer things to be under my control. But yeah, the assists [milestone] is actually more enjoyable because it means guys are playing with confidence and they're more involved. They emotionally feel better. They get more excited, more into the game. It makes playing more enjoyable."
