LeBron James just keeps moving his way up the all-time scoring list. On Wednesday night, The King surpassed another Lakers legend in Wilt Chamberlain for fifth-most points scored. This is the second player that James has passed this year as he knocked Dirk Nowitzki down a peg on the list.

James had a phenomenal game all around and got the points needed to pass Chamberlain on a floater and free throw in the fourth quarter.

After the game, James revealed he had big plans for the game ball and the jersey he wore on his big night:

The 34-year old will look to pass Michael Jordan, the player he is synonymous with in conversations about the best player of all-time next. James will very likely pass Jordan on the all-time list this season provided he remains healthy.

The Lakers still own three of the top five spots on the all-time scoring list with the James for Chamberlain swap. However, Dirk Nowitzki, the only other active player within striking distance can pass Chamberlain this season as well.
