Superstars like LeBron James, Steph Curry, James Harden, Kevin Durant have taken this sport to new heights.
They have scored some of the highest numbers of scores in NBA history. Check Top 10 NBA Scorers Of All Time.
LeBron James surpassed Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant on the NBA’s all-time scoring chart, moving up to No. 3 already padding an already storied legacy.
James has been in third since he passed Kobe Bryant in January of 2020, but he is within striking distance of Karl Malone.
With 35,367 points, King James needs 1,562 points to overtake the Mailman for the second position.
James has failed to score at least 1,562 points in a season just twice in his 18-year career, though both times have been over the last three years.
Here are the Top 10 NBA Scorers of all time :
- Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: 38,387
- Karl Malone: 36,928
- LeBron James: 35,367
- Kobe Bryant: 33,643
- Michael Jordan: 32,292
- Dirk Nowitzki: 31,560
- Wilt Chamberlain: 31,419
- Shaquille O’Neal: 28,596
- Moses Malone : 27,409
- Carmelo Anthony: 27,370
When James inevitably passes Malone, whether it’s this season or the next one, he’ll shift his sights toward Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s all-time NBA record of 38,387 points.
Meanwhile, Anthony knocked Elvin Hayes out of the top 10 in 2020-21, finishing the season with 924 points over 69 games and 27,370 points for his career.
It should only take Anthony a handful of games to record the 40 points required for him to move into sole possession of ninth, where Moses Malone sits with 27,409 points.
Melo would have to score 1,227 points to pass Shaquille O’Neal for eighth, which would be his best scoring output since 2017-18 as a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder.
He could certainly claim the No. 8 spot at some point, but that may be as high as the 37-year-old Anthony can ultimately climb; Wilt Chamberlain is another 2,833 points ahead of Shaq in seventh.
We’ve heard “offense is the best kind of defense” on numerous occasions, but the following men redefined it on a regular basis and made it a part of their basketball being.
While dribbling the ball down the court, with the clock running down, shooters in place waiting for the catch-and-shoot, crowd on its feet, opponents on their toes with their arms out wide, a heartbeat in sync with the ball hitting the hardwood and a brain racing through all possible options to get the ball inside the bucket in 24 seconds, they would absorb it all in and let go, with just their basketball instincts by their side.
