Melo chasing Jerry West, Reggie Miller on all-time scoring list

carmelo-anthonyCarmelo Anthony’s NBA career may have not been all smooth, but he got himself another achievement recently, by joining the NBA’s elite 25k point club.

Anthony reached the 25,000-point mark during the third quarter of Oklahoma City’s game at Detroit on Saturday night.

Anthony came into the game needing 17 points to reach the milestone. Anthony became the 21st player in NBA history to reach the mark and the 11th-fastest player to do it.

The 33-year-old Anthony was playing in his 1,024th game.

Anthony is also one of three active players, along with James and Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki, who are represented in the 25K club.

Next up for Anthony will be passing Jerry West and cracking the top 20 on the league’s all-time scoring list.

Depending on how long Anthony will continue to play, there are still NBA legends to beat, aside from Jerry West:

19. Reggie Miller (25,279 points)
18. Alex English (25,613 points)
17. Kevin Garnett (26,071 points)

and many more…
