LeBron James is one of the most dominant players in NBA history. Despite being one of the most prolific passers, James has wowed fans with his ability to score the basketball. And this run of dominance has lasted for almost 20 years.
James is currently 3rd in the all-time NBA scoring list. And given his age, he has a very strong chance to end up being the leading all-time scorer in NBA history. Despite his impressive numbers in terms of scoring, he is not considered one of the best scorers of all time.
In fact, Allen Iverson recently left James off his list of top-5 'killers' in the NBA. Fans were surprised by this, especially given the fact that James and Iverson have played against each other during their respective stints in the league.
One person who was surprised was NBA analyst Skip Bayless. On 'Undisputed', noted that Iverson not putting LeBron on his list of killers was the 'ultimate diss', and used it to diminish James' status as one of the greatest players of all time.
"This was the ultimate diss. LeBron and Shannon should be offended. If this man is the GOAT and he's still the best player on the planet, then he's gotta belong on AI's list."
Since the day James entered the league, he's been scoring double-digit points for each season. James is an excellent scorer, despite that aspect not being his strongest suit. For James, it is his passing that makes him an elite player in the league.
But that is not to say that he isn't a great scorer. Over the years, James has shown an ability to adapt to the NBA changes. In the 2010s, the NBA became more focused on three-pointers. And while James did not enter the league with a solid three-point shot, he has improved his range shooting and become a serviceable shooter.
