Basketball star Kobe Bryant hits a historic mark while a Brazilian soccer team wants to sign Renaldo. Check out what else happened this week!

Kobe hits 20,000

Kobe Bryant made history last Sunday at Madison Square Garden. In the world's most famous arena, Bryant became the youngest player in NBA history to hit the 20,000 point plateau. He surpassed legendary center Wilt Chamberlain by 12 days, by scoring 20,000 at the age of 29 years and 122 days old. Also on Sunday, Bryant scored 39 points to lead his Lakers to a 89-83 win over the Knicks. As of Thursday, the Lakers are now 18-10, which is good enough for second in the Pacific Division.

Brazil Team Wants Renaldo

Brazilian soccer powerhouse Flamengo is in talks to bring over soccer star Renaldo to their team. Currently, the 31-year-old soccer sensation is under contract with Italy's AC Milan. In the past, Renaldo has expressed interest in joining the five-time Brazilian championship team. His team AC Milan has given permission to Flamengo to talk to Renaldo - who is under contract until the end of the 2008 season. This past season has been one of Renaldo's worst as a professional, because he was slowed down by injuries. Renaldo, a Brazilian native, is a two-time FIFA Player of the Year and led Brazil to two World Cups.

Skiles Fired

After a successful season last year, big things were expected out of the Chicago Bulls, but two months into the season the Bulls had one of the NBA's worst records. On Christmas eve, the Bulls fired coach Scott Skiles. He was in his fifth season as Bulls head coach and had led them to three straight playoff appearances - including a trip to the second round last year. Long time assistant coach Pete Meyers will replace Skiles as the temporary coach of the Bulls.

Notes Around the Sports World

  • Roger Clemens addressed the latest steroid allegations by posting a video response on the internet. He said he is innocent and will go on a TV interview with 60 Minutes after Christmas to answer any questions.
  • The San Diego Chargers have been on fire lately as they have won five straight games. They started the season 5-5, but have picked it up since and have clinched the NFC West.
  • Legendary college basketball coach Eddie Sutton is coming out of retirement to coach the University of San Francisco. The former Oklahoma State coach has 798 career wins and came back to reach the 800-win mark.
  • The Portland Trailblazers have improved their winning streak to 11 games after defeating the Seattle Supersonics on Christmas Day.
