On Thursday night, LeBron James moved up to third on the NBA's all-time field goals made list, as the Los Angeles Lakers took on the Denver Nuggets. James, who has now made 12,682 field goals, accomplished the feat mid-way through the first quarter on a driving layup.
James passes NBA legend Wilt Chamberlain on the list and now only trails Karl Malone (13,528) and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (15,837). Considering how well LeBron is playing at this stage of his career, he will certainly make a run at catching Kareem and, if James can stay healthy, he could possibly do it.
