Think again.

That's what Brian and I thought when we finished this sleek little project commemorating Kobe at the 25K mark. And with all hype over Jackson, it kinda flew under the radar Derek Fisher drilled three-pointer #1,000 against Charlotte.

Basically, there's always a milestone on the immediate horizon in purple and gold country, which means lots and lots and lots and lots and LOTS of extra work for the K Brothers. To be honest, we're getting sick of it. Thus, Brian and I decided to get proactive, dig deep into the record books, and cover our bases for the next time our editors' nostalgia leads to additional assignments. Now it's as simple as linking back to this post and calling it a day.

-We'll start with the most obvious candidate. Lord knows Kobe's always on the verge of busting some threshold. For example, another 17 offensive rebounds and he passes Elden Campbell (1,207) for seventh highest in team history. And next season will be his 15th with the Lakers, pushing him past Kareem, Elgin, Magic and The Logo for the most time spent in purple and gold. (A record likely to remain intact, unless Andrew Bynum ends up a Laker for life.)
