Lebron James is about to be the youngest player to hit 20000 pts. Kobe already hit 30000 points earlier this year. Who do you think will be the all-points leader once its all said and done?

I think none break it but Durant comes the closest. Only thing that can stop Durant is injury, and i think Lebron slows down within the next five years. I think he would average around 16pts or less but his assists and rebounding will go up. I think Kobe's slow start to his career killed his chances of getting ther, and i just cant see him scoring like he is now for another 4 to 5 years. He would have to average like 23 the next 4 years or 31 the next 3 i think. I just cant see that happening.

Some people doing it doesn't mean he could do it 'easy', regardless of his drive. He could sure, but the odds are against it and it definitely isn't enough of a lock to call it easy.

Although LBJ has quickly moved up the ranks and is on quite a pace, I don't think he'll be able to reach KAJ. If anyone, it has to be Kobe. It all just depends on how much Bryant is willing to push himself and how much longer he decides to continue playing.
The only chance LBJ has, is if he develps more of a consistent jump shot like Kobe did when he took over the Laker team, after Shaq was traded away, and I don't know if he's capable of doing so. Time will only tell, however.

I honestly believe Lebron will be playing in the post as he ages, even when he's 35 I think he'll be to strong for SF's and to fast for PF's.. He's a mach up nightmare, and he'll still have his court vision

01-16-2013, 07:39 PM
I went with my gut here and said Durant. He had led the league in scoring 3x by the time he was 23. That just doesn't happen. He's going to be in that 27-30 range for a long time. In fairness this is actually a really good question. LeBron came right out of HS and he is a scoring machine. You almost forget how much he scores because of his rebounding/passing/defense.

Kobe. Because Kobe showed us that he could tweak his game as he got older. We haven't seen that from Lebron yet. Once Lebron's athleticism goes away (which is 85% of his game) he has to show us that he can develop a drop dead mid range game. Don't see that happening though

Lebron is shooting 41% from mid range this season and his athleticism isnt 85 percent of his game so dont make up numbers out of your ***. He wont even lose most of his athleticism till atleast 34. His game is also so versatile and all around that losing some speed wont do that much, he will still have his post game, jumper, passing abilities, rebounding abilities, and defensive abilities.

01-16-2013, 10:15 PM
38,000 is far above 30,000. I don't see kobe getting there. Nor LeBron as he's a guy who does everything, so he's not a guy who necessarily needs to score a ton to be successful. I can see Durant, if healthy, come close, but even still, 38,000 is a **** ton of points.

JasonJohnHorn
01-17-2013, 12:23 AM
When you consider that LBJ is only 28 years old and he's already at 20 000 points? That is crazy. In 9 seasons he scored 20 000.... can he score 20 000 in the next 9? He would be 37 at that point... Perhaps he will decline the last couple of seasons, but he also doesn't need to score 20 000 to beat Kareem... only 18 500.

LBJ has a post game now to, and as a power player with a great jumper and a 3-ball, he will be able to score at a high volume without athleticism. Your power and your shooting stroke stays with you longer than your athleticism, and so he will be able to score in a high volume longer than guys like Wade or Tim Hardaway year ago, because those guys rely on athleticism to score a lot.

Coupled with that, Kareem played until he was 41. Jordon until he was 39 (with breaks). Let's assume that LBJ plays somewhere in between: 40 years old.

Assuming that LBJ plays until 40, that gives him 13 seasons to score 20 000 points and become the first player to score 40 000. To do that he would have to average slightly above 20 points per game (assuming he averages 75 games per season... I'll leave room for injury). So assuming that he manages to stay around 25 points per game until 35 (like Kobe), he would only have to average 15 points per game for the years between 35-40. I think he could do it.

LBJ CAN break Kareems record, and considering that he is all about his legacy, I have to say that he will in all likelihood put out every effort to reach that plateau, so barring injury, this is LBJ's record to take.

Remember, Karl Malone could have easily broken that record had he wanted to. He could have stayed with the Jazz and remained a 20-point scorer for what was his final season, and the following season he could have still played (there were several teams who wanted him). But Malone chose to chase a ring and sacrificed his scoring average for that goal, and then decided to hang it up even though he could have played a couple more season. If K. Malone could have gotten it done, then LBJ can certainly get it done.

Kobe will not... he didn't score enough early on and considering the fact he has already openly consider retirement and that LAL is not winning, I don't see him sticking around long enough, and he he does stay past his current contract, he is going to HAVE to take a secondary role on offense. No team is gong to want a 37 year old Kobe taking 20+ shots per game. Durant came in a couple years later than LBJ as well... so he will have to extend his playing days to break Kareems record, but I think durant can do it if he develops a post game like LBJ's.

It depends on what you consider declining? He certainly doesn't have the same athletic ability that he did in Cleveland so in that since he is declining. It just depends on if he adds other dimensions to his game.

To be honest, I think Lebron's PPG average will start to decline when he is 33 or so.. Lebron depends on his God given athletic ability to score a lot of the time, he's usually dunking on someone or finishing an athletic and 1 in the paint.. He has improved his shot recently and that's a plus but I just think older guys need more then just athletic ability to score and when he gets into his 30s, that is going to go downhill because his body will start to wear down, won't be as fast strong or have the leaping ability.. I do, however, think his assists will go up tremendously because he will always be a good passer. He might be able to go down as the only player to have 30,000 points and 10,000 assists, but I don't think he will catch KAJ.. If Kobe signs an extension I'd say him but still, it's not looking very likely.. I picked Kobe on the poll, but after thinking about it I kinda wanna change it to nobody will catch KAJ so if mods can change that, great. :)

I think people underestimate how hard it is to play into your 30's. We see guys like Kobe doing it and think anyone can do it. Truth is, not a lot of players can sustain that high level of play.


I think it's Kobe's for the taking if he wants it. It really depends on how long he wants to play. MJ played until he was 40, I think Kobe could do it.


The way Kobe takes care of his body is key. He's gotten more efficient and became a better scorer since the season started.

Lebron will pass Kobe, but not Kareem. He won't be as athletic as he gets older, which is his bread and butter. He'll be forced to take more jump shots which he better improve on.

It's going to be tough for Kobe. LeBron and Durant on the other hand has an opportunity to do it.

Currently, LeBron has to score 23 PPG for the next 8 seasons to pass Kareem. Durant has to average 26 PPG for the next 12 or 13 seasons. I think Durant will do it because he's a scorer. He will shoot more and score more than LeBron because LeBron plays every position and does everything. When you're objective is to score, aka Kobe, you'll reach it quicker. However, Kobe's objective is to score and he's still behind LeBron in PPG.

Lebron is 28 I see him playing u fil he's 38. I think after he reaches the age 34 he will take on more of a passing role. Keep in mind durant is only 24 and I can see him playing to 38 as well because he's such a good shooter. Durant will come very close IMO.

cool story bro, Kobe is also a lot older than lebron, we'll see if lebron is doing what kobe is doing at his age when lebron gets there

.... Even when Kobe was old, his first 9 years PPG was lower than LeBron. What's your excuse? LeBron isn't going to ballhog the ball like Kobe, that's why he's not surpassing Kareem. Durant is the only player in today's league capable.

Gotta go with lebron james.

Its funny that he keeps breaking bryant's point records for "youngest player to reach ....." when he distributes the ball so much as opposed to the number of times bryant has shot the ball over passing it. Bryant had that ballhog reputation in his younger days for a reason. Lebron has always been a team player his whole career, often passing up shots to get his team involved, yet he still keeps breaking bryant's scoring marks.


The only thing that will hold james back from the scoring title all time will be his unselfishness.

Barring injury... Lebron will be better all around but points will go to Durant

Nobody else is in the discussion tbh

I think Lebron has the best chance of passing Jabbar. He's only 28 and could play another 6-7 years of solid ball then he might drop off and play another year or two and he'd be close

If Kobe sticks around another 3 seasons he has it. A lot of Lebrons points are still coming from sheer athleticism. It will be interesting to see what he does when that starts dwindling and he's left with his fundamentals......

If you've never seen a player as athletic, what makes you think he can't defy those odds? To my understanding, LeBron has never been severely injured while playing this type of basketball. Wade was injured countless times. I just think LeBron can keep it up just basing it off the fact that he's the best to do it.

Just something to think about:

Due to several injuries, two lockout shortened seasons and bans, Kobe did miss 151 games so far. With a career average of 25.5 this sums up to another 3,850 points, which he missed out compared to a guy like Karl Malone, who never missed much time until his very last year of playing. Scoring wise, these two lockout season hurt a few guys like KG, TD, Dirk, Kobe (even Vinsanity) and others twice. Injuries are another story, to all players.

Imagine that all didn't happen/occur, Kobe being now at 35,000 points already, probably with even more.

injuries are all part of the game.....michael jordan missed 64 games in his sophomore years....thats why lebron james and kevin durant have a better shot at it...and remember this...i think andrew wiggins will be there....hes was born a natural scorer

Lebron doesn't have the skill to last like Kobe or KAJ. Once Lebron's athletic ability declines, his play will decrease. Once he isn't allowed to just run you over on the way to the basket, things will change. Kobe is the longevity legend for ONE reason; SKILL.
