Kemba Walker continues to climb up the list of greats in Charlotte franchise history.

Walker entered Monday night;s contest against the Chicago Bulls needed 22 points to pass former great Glen Rice and move into sole possession of fourth place on Charlotte's all-time scoring list. By the end of the third quarter, he had 23.

Walker, who finished the evening with 30 points, eight assists and seven rebounds, looked genuinely shocked when Dell Curry notified him of the news after the game, which led to a cool moment caught on live TV.

Next up on the scoring list is another legend — Larry Johnson, who finished his career in Charlotte with 7,405 points. Not far in front of him is Gerald Wallace. Then there is a considerable jump between Wallace the franchise's all-time leading scorer.
