Cleveland Cavaliers

LeBron James passes Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on all-time list, again

#Lebron

LeBron James already passed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as the all-time leading scorer in NBA playoffs history this season, so it was only fitting he eclipsed yet another mark by one of the greatest players of all time Sunday.

With James' basket in the third quarter of Game 2, the 33-year-old now has 1,318 points in the NBA Finals which passes Abdul-Jabbar for the second most of all time.

James now trails only Laker-great Jerry West (1,679 points) for the most points in the NBA Finals ever.

The Cavaliers trailed the Warriors in the third quarter, but had it not been for 51 points in Game 1 from The King, Cleveland may not have even had an inkling it would have a chance in the series at all.
