BASKETBALL: LeBron Goes 5th In All-Time Scoring List
Wilt held the fifth place on the NBA’s all-time scoring list, until LeBron James took to court on Thursday night against the Portland Trail Blazers.
James finished the game with 44 points — the most by a Laker since Kobe Bryant scored 60 in his career finale. He also added 10 rebounds and nine assists in Los Angeles’ 126-117 win.
LeBron now has 31,425 points for his career.
If LeBron were to maintain his season scoring average (26.4), he would surpass Air Jordan by the end of January 2019.
