LeBron James is regarded as one of the best players in NBA history. Since making his debut back in 2003, James has always taken giant strides in his career and he has always played a key role in the success of the team. James has achieved almost everything in the book and he has four NBA championships under his belt.
Meanwhile, according to former NBA player Richard Jefferson, LeBron James is the greatest scorer of all time. Jefferson believes we should rate a best scorer on the parameters of consistency, longevity and its amount.
Richard Jefferson said while speaking Gilbert Arenas podcast, “LeBron James. I hear exactly what you’re saying, and people might disagree with me. But understand this – the greatest scorer is, its consistency, its longevity, and its amount. It might not be these crazy numbers. For me, I was never a 40-point-per-game (guy). Every night, you were going to get, at my best, between 17 and 30 every single night. I was not 9 points, then 51, 22. I was just very consistent.”
On the other hand, Jefferson believes James is a better scorer than former legend Michael Jordan. In fact, James had surpassed Jordan in the playoff scoring three years ago and he at 36 , he still has some fuel left in the tank.
RJ added, “LeBron James’ playoff scoring, he passed Michael Jordan three seasons ago. He’s going to add to that before his career ends. So to pass LeBron James, an all-time playoff scoring record, somebody is going to have to do what? Average 30 points a game, and go to like 13 NBA Finals. That’s just not going to be broken… And then he’s going to pass Kareem.”
Meanwhile, James has recently made a comeback after recuperating from high ankle sprain. The Lakers have lost three matches on the bounce and they will look to get back to winning ways against Denver Nuggets on Monday night.
