Only seven players in NBA history have scored more than 30,000 career points: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Kareem Malone, Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, Wilt chamberlain and Dirk Nowitzki.Lebron James is the only player who can do that, and he’s the only player with a chance to hit 40,000.But as a teammate, Anthony could very well be the second player to do it.Anthony scored 19 points in the loss to the Hornets to reach his career total of 28,000 points, becoming the ninth player to do so, ahead of Shaquille O ‘Neal at 28,596.And he was 2,000 points away from 30,000.So far this season, Anthony is averaging 13.4 points, 4 rebounds and 1 assist per game. He is the fourth leading scorer and the sixth man in the lakers’ lineup.At this rate, Anthony will have at least 400 points in 32 games this season.If Anthony plays two more seasons and averages around 10 points per game, 30,000 is a sure thing.Anthony would be the eighth player in history to reach 30,000 points, but if he doesn’t win a championship, he would also be the second Mr. 30,000 player in history not to win a championship, after Malone, who is the most accomplished player without a championship.If there was a championship, his place in history wouldn’t be so bad.Anthony is 38 years old and will be 40 years old in two more years, which is a great challenge for him, but as a fan hope he can reach 30000 points, after all, there is no championship, at least he will be remembered by fans in other ways.Interestingly, by the time James was 40, he was able to make 40, 000 without accident.It is worth mentioning that Anthony only played 10 games with the rockets in his career, and he almost retired that season.If it wasn’t for the rockets, maybe Carmelo Anthony would have reached 30,000 sooner.Do you think Carmelo Anthony will get 30,000?
