The NBA's all-time scoring list is filled with some of the most prestigious players to ever play the game.

Sitting atop the list is Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, whose 38,387 points are the most in NBA history. While Abdul-Jabbar has owned that record since 1984, there is an active superstar by the name of LeBron James who is in hot pursuit of the top spot.

James has 35,549 points (and counting) as of Nov. 22, 2021, only 1,379 points away from passing Karl Malone (No. 2 on the all-time scoring list) and 2,838 points away from becoming the NBA's all-time points leader.

He's not the only active superstar moving his way up the all-time scoring list, either.

With his first bucket on Wednesday night in Boston, Kevin Durant surpassed Allen Iverson to crack the top 25 on the NBA's all-time scoring list.

Take a look at the full list of the NBA's top-25 all-time leading scorers below.
