As his career has progressed along, LeBron James has continued to cement his legacy in NBA history. James has already etched himself as one of the greatest players to play the game. In light of that, he has recently passed up Hall of Famer Hakeem Olajuwon for 10th on the all-time scoring list.

James will likely continue to skyrocket up on this list passing at least Elvin Hayes and Moses Malone at some point this season. In fact, he has a strong chance of potentially becoming the all-time leading scorer when all is said and done. He is just a 31 years old and should have several more highly productive seasons ahead of him.
The four-time league MVP is less than 12,000 points behind Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, which means if he can average more than more than 24.0 over the next six seasons he could hold that all-time mark or at least finish in the top three. All in all, this only adds to James’ already impressive Hall of Fame resume.
