LeBron James is making sure his name goes down in history in 2018. The player was recently marked sixth on the NBA’s all time leading scorers list. James, who put up 35 points in the Saturday contest, has accumulated 11,339 field goals, passing Shaquille O’Neal on NBA’s all time scorer list. “Dirk’s always been one of my favorite players, and I think Shaq is the most dominant player to ever play this game… So for me to be in the same conversation with those guys in anything that we’re talking about as far as basketball, it’s a tribute,” James said after the game.
“As far as being humble and knowing where I come from, being from Akron, Ohio, a small town that most African-American kids don’t make it out of. So anytime I’m able to do something like that, I give it all back to my hometown and the kids that are just like me.
