Philadelphia:

Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant has passed former teammate Shaquille O'Neal and moved into fifth place on the NBA's career scoring list.

Bryant needed 24 points to pass O'Neal entering Monday night's game against the Philadelphia 76ers. O'Neal retired with 28,596 points. Bryant nailed a long jumper late in the first half to give him 24 points.

O'Neal and Bryant often clashed, even while leading the Lakers to NBA championships in 2000, 2001 and 2002.

Bryant was loudly booed in pregame introductions. Bryant graduated from Lower Merion High School just outside of Philly and has been jeered by Sixers fans for the majority of his career.
