Los Angeles Lakers future Hall-of-Fame shooting guard Kobe Bryant scored 48 points in a 99-83 win over the Phoenix Suns at the Staples Center on Tuesday night.

Kobe has been on fire in 2012, scoring over 30 points in three out of the last five games and one bucket shy of 50 points on Tuesday night. Over the last five games, Kobe is averaging 36 ppg and has moved into second place overall in scoring (as of Jan. 11, Kobe is trailing LeBron James by 0.2 ppg).

LeBron James has become even more dangerous this season. Kevin Durant is the two-time defending scoring champion. And Blake Griffin has received the Chris Paul statistical boost.

The question is, could 33-year-old Kobe Bryant still be the most lethal scorer in the NBA?

Here is a look at the top 10.
