At this point, it's almost inevitable that Kobe Bryant will pass Michael Jordan for third on the all-time scoring list.

Bryant has always been focused on modeling his game after MJ's, from Kobe's chase of Jordan's six rings to being as competitive as him on the court to mimicking his jump shot and even using MJ's famous tongue-wag on drives to the hoop.

Is Kobe's only mindset to pass Jordan's scoring total? Is that the explanation for Kobe's high volume of shot attempts? What example is Kobe trying to set for his Los Angeles Lakers teammates?

Watch as Adam Lefkoe asks Bleacher Report's Kevin Ding if Kobe is too focused on chasing Jordan in the video above.
