Over the last few weeks LeBron James has been racking up accolades. After passing Scottie Pippen for the most assists as a forward and passing Allen Iverson in the all time scorers list LeBron has now passed up his former Miami Heat teammate Ray Allen.
Tuesday night in a game versus the Boston Celtics, boosted by the return of All-Star teammate Kyrie Irving, LeBron was able to score 27 points to help the Cleveland Cavaliers cruise to a 110-79 victory over the Boston Celtics. Those 27 points gave LeBron a total of 24,508 career points, which sits him at 21st all time on the NBA’s all time scoring list.
A few slots higher than LeBron on the list are Patrick Ewing (24, 815), Jerry West (25,192), and Reggie Miller (25,729). At the rate LeBron is going if he’s able to stay healthy, it’s safe to say that he will finish his career among the top 10 all time scorers.
