LeBron moves up to No. 22 on the list…
Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James wasted little time on Sunday as he moved past NBA legend Allen Iverson on the all-time scoring list.
LaVine said he would beat LeBron in Dunk Contest: Timberwolves star stole the show in New York.
Love insists he has no proble with LeBron: James aimed Twitter message at his teammate.
LeBron would come off bench if it helped Cavs: James wants to be complete team player.
James went into Sunday’s clash with the New York Knicks trailing Iverson by three points, and he scored four points in the first 1:33 of the game to surpass him and revealed afterwards that he was honoured to achieve such a feat.
“It’s very, very humbling and it’s an honor to just be named with some of the greats that I watched growing up,” James told ESPN.
“And now to know that I passed Allen Iverson on the all-time scoring list, for someone that’s not much of a scorer – as you guys have deemed me – it is pretty cool.”
Iverson averaged 26.6 points in his career on shooting 42.5 percent from the floor while James is shooting 49.6 overall for his career and averaging 27.4 points per game.
James tried to deflect some of the praise on to his teammates and insisted that they were a key reason behind his success, while he also revealed his delight at bringing up such a milestone in a special arena that is Madison Square Garden.
However, his dig at the media was in reference to their criticism of him earlier in his career when he would seemingly pass up the ball late in games rather than take on big shots himself.
Nevertheless, the two-time NBA champion will want to continue to climb the list as he goes in search of more championships with former teammate Ray Allen next on his radar as he trails the veteran by 122 points at No.21 on the list.
It is undoubtedly merely a matter of time before James gets there and moves past many more former greats of the league, but for now his focus will be on helping the Cavaliers progress and build towards winning an NBA title this year.
