A third championship in June cemented LeBron James’ place as a top-10 player in NBA history in many people’s subjective rankings. There is no disputing his place as a top-10 scorer, at the very least, after Saturday.
James passed Hall of Famer Hakeem Olajuwon for 10th on the all-time scoring list in the first quarter of the Cavaliers’ 102-101 win over the 76ers on Saturday night.
