Just shows how impressive Kareem's record is.
If averaging 25 points a game, Kobe would have to play 278 more games
If playing 78 games a season that's about three and a half more seasons. It's possible, but very unlikely.
Kareem's record should be safe unless Kobe decides to stick around for extra years just to break it, which I think would be a detriment to his legacy.
