Kobe Bryant wasn’t the only Laker to reach a milestone on Wednesday night in New Orleans.
World Peace is just the sixth NBA player to score more than 12,000 points while collecting at least 4,000 rebounds, making 1,000 three-pointers and getting 1,500 steals, according to the team’swebsite.
At age 33, World Peace is in his 14th season (the majority of them played as Ron Artest). On the season, he’s averaged 12.9 points a game while shooting 41% from the field and 38.6% from three-point range.
World Peace’s role has increased this season; he’s been playing more than 35 minutes a game after arriving at training camp in tremendous shape.
