Kobe Bryant Nears NBA Record For Most Missed Field Goal Attempts
It looks like Kobe Bryant might have to add a different type of NBA record to his legacy.
The Los Angeles Laker is reportedly 13 failed shots away from breaking the league’s most missed field goal attempts, the OC Register reports, but a few of Bryant’s teammates aren’t too worried about it.
“He has the ultimate confidence, no question,” [Carlos] Boozer said. “I’ve seen Kobe make shots that most guys couldn’t even think about doing. … That’s why fans come every night. You might see him do something that you’ll never see again in your life. He’s worth the admission price.”
The current holder of that record belongs to retired Boston Celtics John Havlicek with 13,417 missed shots. Bryant has missed 13,405 shots.
The Lakers take on the Memphis Grizzlies Tuesday (Nov. 11), at 8 p.m. on ESPN.
