We all know that LeBron James is an AMAZING basketball player. No matter if you love him, hate him or don’t care but you can’t deny that he is a great player. Well, last night in the L.A. Lakers win 126-117 win over the Portland Trailblazers, James moved into 5th place. He is now the 5th highest all-time NBA scoring. He took over Wilt Chamberlian’s title in the 4th quarter.

He is now 867 points behind Michael Jordan for fourth and 2,218 points behind Lakers legend Kobe Bryant who is in third. Karl Malone is ranked number two and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is number one.  At this rate, James might take over the top spot.

Congratulations LeBron!
