Watch LeBron James pass Karl Malone for second on NBA all-time scoring list

LeBron James has a complete game — elite passer, six-time All-Defensive Team member, strong rebounder — but make no mistake, the man can get you points. Lots of points. Like 36,929 of them.

LeBron passed Karl-Malone for second on the NBA all-time regular season scoring list Saturday night with a layup that gave him 36,929 points for his career.

When it was announced in the arena, the Washington crowd gave LeBron a standing ovation.

The only man ahead of him on the scoring list is Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387) and LeBron is targeting that record, something that would be a serious addition to his GOAT resume. At his current scoring pace, LeBron should pass Kareem either late next season or in the first part of the 2023-24 season.

LeBron is already the leader in points scored, playoffs and regular season combined.

Savor watching LeBron play while you can, there will not be another like him.
