LOS ANGELES -- Kobe Bryant doesn't normally celebrate being fifth place in anything, but sometime between now and next week, Bryant will pass Shaquille O'Neal for fifth place on the NBA's all-time scoring list and he will smile.
You've seen the smile before.
He flashed it after he won his last championship two years ago and said, "I just got one more than Shaq. So you can take that to the bank. You guys know how I am. I don't forget anything."
