NBA All-Time Scoring Leaders

The All-Time NBA scoring leaders. Check out the NBA all time scoring list and who holds the record for most points in career

Kareem Abdul Jabbar Lakers

In the 2020/21 season LeBron James continues to pursue the career record for most points in NBA. The King has the opportunity to keep chasing first place in the NBA All Time Scoring List.

Most Points in NBA history

The NBA all time scorer is Kareem Abdul-Jabbar who scored 38,387 points in 20 seasons, remaining solidly in first place in this special ranking.

The main threat to the record come from LeBron James, who is on the third step of the podium, only 4 thousand points behind the first position.

In his career, LeBron has maintained an average of 27.1 points per game (confirmed also in 2020/21 with 25.4 points per game). Assuming that he can realistically play at the highest level for 3 more seasons, he would only need 65 games per season with an average of 23.0 points to overcome Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Certainly challenging hypothesis, but LeBron has accustomed us to true legendary standards.

So here is the NBA all time scoring leaders updated in April 2021, considering only the Regular Season.
