Kobe Bryant made history Tuesday, setting the NBA record for missed field goals.

Asked about the record, Bryant, who scored a game-high 28 points on 10-of-26 shooting and finished with 13,421 misses for his career, smiled and said he wasn’t aware of it.

“Nah, I don’t follow that stuff, man,” he said.

How does he explain setting the mark?

“Well, I’m a shooting guard that’s played 19 years,” he said, shrugging and smiling. He later added, “Like I said, ‘shooting’ guard, 19th year.”

“I don’t care about it, to be honest with you,” Bryant said. “It is what it is. I remember when I was a kid and I watched Michael shoot 49 times in an NBA Finals game. Can you imagine if I did that and lost? Puts things in perspective.
