LeBron James has now scored the 21st most points in NBA history after dropping 27 points against the Boston Celtics moving him to 24,508 points for his career, and shuffling past former teammate and friend, Ray Allen.

James commented after the game “He’s one of my best friends,” “He’s a guy I competed against and grew up watching, and to be able to team with him the last two years when I was with Miami, I learned so much from him. To know I passed him, it’s very humbling.”

What should be really humbling is LeBron has eclipsed Allen’s 18-year career in less than 12 years of play. LeBron just recently moved past Allen Iverson on the all-time scoring list as well.
