LeBron James would be the first to say what mattered most to him is the Lakers lost to the Spurs Saturday night, 110-106, dropping L.A. to 2-4 on the season.
However, in that game LeBron scored 35, and a third-quarter fadeaway jumper moved him past Dirk Nowitzki into sixth on the all-time scoring list.
LeBron is just 217 points back of Wilt Chamberlain fifth on the all-time list, that should happen in November. Next on the list after that? One Michael Jordan.
Nowitzki said he thinks LeBron can go after Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s all-time scoring record. That’s a long way off still, but don’t ever doubt LeBron can get there. If he wants.
