How soon can LeBron claim NBA's all-time scoring throne?

Kyrie Irving and Le Bron James each score 30 points as Boston Celtics defeat Los Angeles Lakers | NBA News

Sitting courtside with his family including his son, 2 Chainz was ecstatic to watch the magic happen but it's what he did afterward that's got people talking. Although James has played only 47 games for Los Angeles, he has charged up the career scoring chart in that time: He passed Dirk Nowitzki for sixth place in October, and he passed Wilt Chamberlain for fifth place in November.

Should his athleticism carry James past those numbers, one can only imagine the kind of chains 2 Chainz will be around to bestow! Passing Jordan, however, was extra special for James who has been open about idolizing Jordan as he was growing up.

James, who has now scored more than Jordan's 32,292 points, had previously leapfrogged the former Chicago Bulls star in the list of most rebounds (8,820 to 6,672) and assists (8,584 to 5,633). Jordan reached his scoring total in 1,072 games over 15 seasons.

Now, James trails only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387 points), Karl Malone (36,928) and Kobe Bryant (33,643) on the all-time scoring chart. "I know that LeBron James is arguably one of the greatest ever to lace them up, and this is a great accomplishment in his career".

To be fair to LeBron, he recently became the only player in National Basketball Association history to reach the all-time top 10 in both points and assists. Furthermore, it's unlikely that the four-time MVP will play in any more back-to-back games down the stretch.

The Los Angeles Lakers fell even further out of the Western Conference playoff race on Wednesday night, losing to the Denver Nuggets at Staples Center.

LeBron is 34-years-old. He's been to eight-straight NBA Finals.

With last night's loss against the Nuggets, the Lakers are now completely out of playoff contention.
