AFP/Scanpix invites you to celebrate this day by remembering recently passed away NBA legend Kobe Bryant once again. Eight years ago on this day Mamba achieved yet another of his many records.

In the third quarter of the West’s 152-149 victory over the East, Kobe Bryant broke Michael Jordan’s record for career points scored in the ASG. Needing 19 points to surpass Jordan’s record of 262 career points, Bryant finished the game with 27 points to set the new record at 271 points.
