As expected, LeBron James moved up the NBA’s all-time scoring list again on Friday (April 1), passing Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson.
The NBA star moved to 11th place on the list during the Cleveland Cavalier’s overtime victory over the Hawks in Atlanta… where he scored 29 points.
“I wish I could’ve had a triple-double in passing him as well,” James said. “That would’ve been the perfect thing. Any time I’m linked with the Big O, it’s an honor for myself. I understand and know how much he meant not only to the game of basketball but what he represented off the floor. It’s special to be linked with a guy like that who was so special.”
James passed Robertson just one night after passing former Hawks Hall of Famer Dominique Wilkins for 12th place.
