2. Michael Jordan

The G.O.A.T enters this list in the runners up spot. Jordan might not be used to losing but he will have to settle for second best here. 

What more is there to say about the man who everyone knows is the best to ever play the game. 

Michael could score in any way he chose too. From the mid range, to driving to the basket for a layup, slamming down ferocious dunks or posting up and dominating his defender, the game of basketball seemed too easy for MJ at times. 

Hell he even gave up for two years to play baseball and still came back to become the third most prolific point getter of all time. And then he won some more titles. 

Despite being heavily guarded by  the defense and seeing a lot of double teams, he scored just as well as he would one-on-one. 

He rose up to the occasion in the post season and finals, where he was the league's all time leader and his overall numbers went off. He led ten times in scoring with averages of like 43.7, 35.7, 34.8, 36.7 points etc.

Career Stats:

- 32,292 points, third most all time

- 10 scoring titles, the most ever

- Highest scoring average in a Finals
