By doing so, the Cavaliers superstar joined an exclusive group of players who've cracked the 30,000-point threshold.
|1||Kareem Abdul-Jabbar||38 387|
|2||Karl Malone||36 928|
|3||Kobe Bryant||33 643|
|4||Michael Jordan||32 292|
|5||Wilt Chamberlain||31 419|
|6||Dirk Nowitzki||30 837|
|7||LeBron James||30 001|
With a scoring average of nearly 26 points per game since rejoining the Cavaliers in 2014, James will have an opportunity to pass the still-active Dirk Nowitzki and all-timers Wilt Chamberlain and Michael Jordan by the end of next season if he keeps up his pace. After that, King James will have more heavy lifting ahead of him in his pursuit of the top three.
In addition to his outstanding regular-season totals, James has scored 6,163 points in the playoffs - more than any other player in NBA history. Jordan trails him with 5,987 career postseason points.
