As LeBron James approaches Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and is set to become the NBA’s career scoring leader, the journey has included some memorable moments.

And there were many. Many.

Over the course of 20 seasons and four NBA championships, James’ list of unforgettable nights is endless. But here are five that stand out.


His career-high scoring game came on March 3, 2014, when James, playing with a mask to protect his face from a broken face, scored 61 points against the Charlotte Bobcats, setting a Miami Heat scoring record that still stands.

He made 22 of 33 shots in the Heat’s 124-107 victory. He made his first eight 3-pointers, the last of which was officially listed as 29 feet but appeared to be deeper.

Even the Bobcats were impressed.

“You take away his 61 points,” Charlotte Al Jefferson said, “and we still had a chance at the end.”


Game 6 of the 2012 Eastern Conference Finals against Miami didn’t get off to a great start. The Heat were in Boston down 3-2 in the series, one loss away from being eliminated and — after losing in the NBA Finals last year — in James’ first season in Miami, they likely must win to avoid a Miami overhaul. the list.
