LeBron James continues to climb up the all-time NBA scoring list.

On Tuesday night, LeBron passed Wilt Chamberlain to move to fifth in the league’s all-time scoring list during the Los Angeles Lakers’ 126-117 win over the Portland Trail Blazers.

LeBron now sits in the rarest of rare air, sitting behind only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Karl Malone, Kobe Bryant, and Michael Jordan, respectively. (RELATED: LeBron James Hangs On The Rim, Doesn’t Get Called For A Tech)

NBA All-Time Scoring List Top 10 (

Player Points

In addition to passing Chamberlain, James also had his best game of the 2018-19 season, scoring a season-high 44 points, while also tallying 10 assists and 9 rebounds, falling just one rebound short of a triple-double.

It is a significant possibility, if not a likelihood, that LeBron ends up at the top of this list, which would further solidify his standing as the GOAT (Greatest of All Time).
