Either you love Lebron James or you hate him, but one thing is for sure, he will go down as one of the best basketball players of all time. He has taken his team to the championship the last 6 years in a row and has won 3 out of 6 of those championships. Then there are the things he does off the court, especially for kids in his community. He is a true role model and a true competitor, in every sense of the words.
He recently passed Hall Of Famer Hakeem Olajuwon on the scoring list becoming the 10th highest scorer in NBA history. With still many more years to play, nobody is sure where he will end up on the NBA's all-time scoring list. However, this is a great feat that he can add to the already extremely impressive resume. Olajuwon finished his career with 26,946 points and he still holds the record for most blocks of all time in the NBA.
Cleveland's LeBron James moved into 10th place on the NBA's all-time scoring list, passing Hall-of-Famer Hakeem Olajuwon by converting a fast break layup with 6 minutes, 2 seconds left in the first quarter of the Cavaliers' game, against the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday night. James' first attempt at passing the record was an emphatic block by Philadelphia's Joel Embiid 3:20 into the contest. After two more misses, James quickly raced up the court for an easy layup. Anytime you make the top 10 in any category in the four major sports, it is an amazing accomplishment in itself. When it is all said and done, Lebron surely will end up in the top 3 of NBA scoring of all time, as he has many more years to play.
