LeBron James continues to climb up the NBA record books.
With a bucket early in Cleveland’s game in Milwaukee, LeBron moved past the legendary Moses Malone into eighth on the NBA’s all-time scoring list. He did it with an offensive rebound in the paint, then bullying his way to the rim for an easy bucket — a Malone specialty.
That is the third time this season LeBron has leapfrogged someone on the list, he passed Hakeem Olajuwon and Elgin Hayes already.
Next up for LeBron on the list is Shaquille O’Neal, but that’s an 1,100 point gap that is going to likely take until next season.
