James finished the game with 38 points for 36,937 in his career and now trails only legendary center Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on the all-time list. Abdul-Jabbar has been the NBA’s scoring king since 1984 and finished his 20-year career with 38,387 points. “I will not allow myself to think about it,” James said of the possibility of passing Abdul-Jabbar. “I’ve always just played the game the way I’ve been playing it over the years, and these things have just happened organically by just going out and playing the game the right way. Hope to accomplish that at some point in my career, but I won’t think about it too much.”

More on this storyline

Saturday in Washington, it was a thundering dunk, a driving layup, a handful of threes and, finally, a cutting layup that pushed James up the NBA’s all-time scoring leaderboard to No. 2, trailing only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. The historic basket came midway into the second quarter of the Lakers’ 127-119 loss. Stanley Johnson found James on a back-door cut into the paint for a right-handed layup for his 36,930th career point, moving him past Karl Malone for second on the NBA’s career scoring list. “Just to be part of this league the many years I’ve been a part of it and being linked to some of the greatest who’ve ever played this game and guys I’ve ever watched or studied or read about or aspired to be like … I’m just always lost for words for it,” James said. -via Los Angeles Times / March 20, 2022

After scoring six points in the first quarter, James came out firing in the second. He scored the Lakers’ first 15 points of the quarter to pass Malone. James hit a cutting layup on a feed from Stanley Johnson at the 5:20 mark to give him 36,929 points, one better than Malone. “Just to be a part of this league for as many years as I’ve been a part of it and being linked to some of the greatest who’ve ever played this game, guys I’ve either watched or studied or read about or aspired to be like … I’m just always lost for words for it,” James said. “It’s an honor for myself, for my hometown, for my family and my friends to be able to live these moments throughout this journey. And that’s exactly who I do it for.” -via USA Today Sports / March 20, 2022

Ryan Ward: Carmelo on LeBron passing Malone: “Take your hat off to LeBron” for being able to do what he’s done in his career thus far. -via Twitter @RyanWardLA / March 20, 2022
