Kobe Bryant has become only the fifth player in NBA basketball history to score 30,000 points.

Needing 13 points to reach the milestone, Bryant scored 29 for his Los Angeles Lakers in their 103-87 win over New Orleans.

The 34-year-old is the youngest player to join the elite points-scoring club alongside Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Karl Malone and Michael Jordan.
