LeBron is the leading scorer in NBA history. He’s also a four-time regular-season MVP, four-time champion and four-time Finals MVP. 

“When I came out of high school, I was the top player in the country my junior year,” Stoudemire said. “Number one. I get to my senior year and LeBron James is the top player in the country. How does that work? Right as a junior he’s top, so I kind of had an idea that Bron was gonna be the greatest of all time because you see him now having all that weight on his shoulders and to continue to be who he is, who God made him to be, and to be a guy who transcends the game of basketball, we have to cherish those moments. 

“But to understand and watch him and glorify this because you will never see this again.”

A 20-time All-Star, LeBron has career averages of 27.1 points, 7.5 rebounds, 7.4 assists, 1.5 steals and 0.7 blocks with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Miami Heat and Los Angeles Lakers.

LeBron is first in NBA history in points, second in field goals, fourth in assists, ninth in steals, fifth in triple-doubles, seventh in points per game, third in player efficiency rating and eighth in 3-point field goals. 

LeBron is the only player in NBA history to rank top five all-time in both points and assists. He’s also the only player to have at least 30,000 points, 10,000 rebounds and 10,000 career assists. 

LeBron has won one ring with the Cavaliers, two with the Heat and one with the Lakers. He’s the only player in NBA history to win three Finals MVPs with three different franchises. 

LeBron is the lone player in NBA history to score 40,000 career points. He accomplished that feat this season.

Stoudemire, who averaged 18.9 points, 7.8 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.2 blocks during his NBA career, had a record of 11-15 versus LeBron.
