Lakers Bryant to pass West

March 17, 2009 |  6:07 pm

Kobe Bryant comes into Tuesday night's game against the Philadelphia 76ers tied with Lakers legend Jerry West for the second-most games played in franchise history. Assuming he is on the court at Staples Center for the opening tip, Bryant will play in his 933rd game, passing West for sole possession of second place.

The only other man to have played in more games as a Laker is Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, with 1,093.
