LeBron James Youngest NBA Player to Reach the 31K Career Points

NBA – Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James became the youngest NBA players to reach the 31,000 career points during their exiting and trilling end game against the Philadelphia 76ers at Well Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

James is the seventh NBA player all time to reach the milestone, joining the elite group of fast and former NBA superstar with the likes of Dirk Nowitzki, Wilt Chamberlain, Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Karl Malone and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

James reaches the milestone after scoring 44 points in a down to wire finish against the 76ers unfortunately, despite his huge game after dropping his season best 18th triple double he missed the crucial free throws that could possibly tie the game and extend to overtime. Eventually the Cavs loss the game 130 – 132 and falls down to 4th spot in the East while the 76ers, who won the game are currently holding the 3rd seed in the East.

As of now LeBron James remains in 7th place in the NBA All-time Scoring list with 31,002 career points separating by only 185 points to 6th place and only active player in the list the Dallas Mavericks and former MVP Dirk Nowiztki. James is expected to pass Nowiztki this coming games with 6 or more games if James will continue to score 30 plus points per games.

Wilt Chamberlain is also in danger of losing his spot to LeBron James with only 417 points separations in their total career points as of now. James is expected to surpass Chamberlain in the 2nd round or possibly in the conference finals of the post season if the Cavaliers are lucky enough to advance?

LeBron is more likely to end the season at 5th All- Time in scoring and the next target would be the one and only “GOAT” Michael Jordan at 4th spot and it would happen in the upcoming 2018 – 2019 NBA Season?

Meanwhile, prior to this new achievement by LeBron James he recently broke the record of Michael Jordan 866 consecutive games with 10 points or more, James has now 871 double digit points and counting….
