Arguably the NBA’s Greatest Of All Time, LeBron James, reached another milestone this season as he passes Karl Malone in the second spot in NBA All-Time Scoring List.
With his 38 point outing against the Washing Wizards, LBJ climbed up to the 2nd spot in the All-Time scoring ladder.
He is now sitting with 36,947 total points in his career. The 37-year-old superstar had just passed Karl Malone, who previously held the record (36,928 points). LBJ is now second in the list and is only 1,440 points shy from the All-Time leader in points, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387 points).
LeBron also reached this milestone with 113 games fewer than Karl Malone.
The King is currently averaging 29.8 points per game this season and is still playing at an elite level even at his age. He is the obvious leader of the Los Angeles Lakers, playing alongside stars like Russell Westbrook and Anthony Davis.
If LeBron continues this style of play, there’s no doubt he will pass Kareem and take over the 1st spot next season!
LeBron James just needs about 60 more games to pass Kareem, that is if he averages more than 25 points per outing in his future games.
But, before that, what he and the Lakers should focus on is a shot at a playoff appearance this season. Though he got the record, they also lost the game against Washington Wizards. It was a game they were supposed to win, but the Wizards came back and took home the victory.
