The 36-year-old Kobe Bryant sets NBA all-time most missed field goals in 107-102 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on Tuesday night. Bryant missed a jumper in the 4th quarter giving him 13,418 career missed field goals, one more than Boston Celtics legend John Havlicek according to ESPN.
But Kobe did it in his 19th season in the NBA compared to Havlicek 16th season in the 1960’s. And he doesn’t care about it “I don’t care about it, to be honest with you,” Bryant quoted on ESPN. “It is what it is. I remember when I was a kid and I watched Michael shoot 49 times in an NBA Finals game. Can you imagine if I did that and lost? Puts things in perspective.”
