LeBron James just took 22nd place on the NBA’s list of all-time scorers. He surpassed the legendary Allen Iverson, who scored a total of 24,368 points in his career.
LeBron is moving up the list at a very fast rate, and at 30 years old, there’s a good chance that he will end up in the top 10 by the time his career is done.
It’s hard to argue again James being one of the best scorers in the league. He has average over 20 point per game in each of his 12 seasons. In fact, he averages over 26 points per game in every season but his rookie campaign.
LeBron could have taken over Iverson in Cleveland’s win against the Wizards one game earlier, but he was taken out of the game early, since the Cavs were fully in control.
It only took him two minutes on Sunday against the Knicks to move ahead of Iverson.
