Wow! Kobe Bryant’s Incredible Career Shot Chart Shows Over 30,000 Attempts

Kobe Bryant bowed out of the NBA after scoring 60 points on 50 shots in his final career game.

The Los Angeles Lakers ran out eventual winners over Utah Jazz after a fightback at the Staples Center, California.

After outscoring the Jazz by himself 23-21 in the fourth quarter, Bryant checked out with 4.1 seconds left, serenaded by “Kobe! Kobe! Kobe!” chants.

Kobe’s 50 shots were the most taken by anyone in an NBA game in the past 30 seasons, according to Stats LLC.

It was the sixth 60-point game of his career and marked the most points scored by a player in his final regular-season game.

No Hall of Famer had previously reached 30 points in his final game, with John Havlicek’s 29 in 1978 leading the way.

Following the match, the LA Times released an interactive shot chart illustrating over 30,000 of Kobe’s career shots using tiny dots.

Every dot which you hover over has its own story including details like the date, distance and opponent that the shot was taken against.

It’s pretty awesome to look at. But it kind of makes you wonder who had all that time on their hands to make such an impressive tribute.
