For Games Played, Kobe = Jordan at 1,072

While clicking through some hoops articles before the Lakers tipped off in Memphis on Monday night, I noticed the following stat from a post by Joe Dorish on the players who’ve played the most games in NBA history:

Right now, Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan have played the exact same number of NBA games: 1,072.

Bryant has actually already played more playoff games, 198-179, but the regular season number seemed worthy of its own post.
