– LBJ moves up in all-time list

It seems like almost every night that LeBron James is passing someone on some all-time list. Due to James’ skill and durability, he has been able to accumulate some ridiculous stats in the NBA over his career.

On Saturday, James will be well-positioned to move up in arguably one of the most famous all-time lists. That, of course, is the scoring list. Ahead of James by just 17 points is one of the best scorers of all-time in Kobe Bryant.

For Lakers fans, this will be an interesting night, as Kobe is one of their most beloved players of all-time. However, James’ success with the team this season has seemingly won over a lot of the fans that didn’t approve of signing him.

With just 17 points between James and Kobe, it will be important for James to surpass Bryant. James is usually a lock for over 20 points per game, but perhaps he might feel some pressure trying to catch Kobe in Philadelphia on National television.

If the Lakers are going to win this game, they obviously need James to be on his game. With just 17 points to go, we could be in store for some history on Saturday night.
