When it comes to the game of basketball, i am a huge fan. Although, I am not a big fan of(because he plays for the LA Lakers), I am hoping for him to reach the top.
It's been a while since we last seen a basketball player that can achieve too many things. Scoring like a machine that just keeps on throeing the ball in the hoops basically makes us happy. But then again do we know who the National Basketball Association (the top most premier basketball league in the world) Scoring Leader is?
I'm Happy to announce that it is still Kareem Abdul Jabar of the Los Angeles Lakers who had 38,387 total points over his career.
Kobe Bryant is the closest and active player that we have on the league. If Michael Jordan did not retire in the early 90's and was able to play for a sean back in the 80's he might have had a shot at getting the title or might have gotten close to the title.
Below is the list of the top 10 players who made it to this incredible achievement over their basketball careers.
1. Kareem Abdul Jabar (38,387) - retired
2.(36,928) - retired
3. Michael Jordan (32,292) - retired
4.(31,419) - retired
5. Shaquille O'Neal (28,596) - retired
6. Kobe Bryant (28,573) - active
7.(27,409) - retired
8. Elvin Hayes (27,313) - retired
9.(26,946) - retired
10.(26,710) - retired
Out of the top 10 players in the All Time Scoring of the National Basketball Association no one even comes close to the title other than Kobe Bryant.
Kobe Bryant, let's go, let's go, let's go and hit that mark. It won't be that easy but you're the closest.
