Kobe Bryant has missed more shots in the regular season than any other player in NBA history.
The Los Angeles Lakers star passed Celtics legend Jon Havlicek’s record (13,147) during Tuesday night’s game against the Grizzlies. Bryant eclipsed passed Havlicek’s mark in 18 fewer games.
The record-breaking miss came on a mid-range jump shot in the fourth quarter.
Bryant, 36, has hoisted at least 1,500 shots in 10 of his 19 seasons. His 2,173 attempts in 2005-06 were a career high. Bryant has shot 45.3% from the field and averaged 25.5 points per game during his career.
Over six games this season entering Tuesday, Bryant has scored 26.5 points per game while posting a 39.4 field goal percentage — which would be a career-low if maintained over the entire season.
Bryant currently ranks fourth on the NBA’s all-time scoring list.
