Cavs forward LeBron James scored 28 points in a loss to the Grizzlies Monday night and passed Celtics legend John Havlicek for No. 13 in the NBA all-time scoring list. This was the exact moment when James put Havlicek in his rear-view mirror.
King James, who turned 31 last December, needed 971 regular season games to score 26,406 points. Havlicek finished his career with 26,395 points at age 38 after 1,270 games. So yeah, LeBron’s numbers are absolutely staggering.
The four-time MVP could realistically finish the season as an all-time Top 10 scorer with 20 games left and Hakeem Olajuwon only 540 points away.
