All-time field goals made
Congrats to @KingJames of the @Lakers for moving up to 3rd on the all-time FIELD GOALS MADE list! pic.twitter.com/NiTRhp5HJR- NBA (@NBA) February 5, 2021
James, who passed Chamberalin on the all-time scoring list in November 2018, averages around 735 made field goals per season through his career. If he can continue his current pace he'll pass Karl Malone for third next season, but needs another three seasons at that pace to catch up to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for first all-time.
