LeBron was selected with the first overall pick in the 2003 NBA Draft by the Cleveland Cavaliers, and his impact was immediate. He averaged 20.9 ppg, 5.9 apg and 5.5 rpg in his rookie year and everyone knew then that he was going to be a force. After that, James went on to accumulate numerous achievements and accolades including All Star honors, MVP Awards and three NBA titles.

James finished the game with 31 points but the Nuggets ended up winning the game 115-99. LeBron is now staring up at Kobe Bryant, who sits in third place on the All-Time Scoring list with 33,643 points. Further up are Karl Malone (36,928) and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387 points).

Could he pass all three? Maybe. But for now, just let him enjoy what he’s done.
