LeBron James has moved another spot up the NBA's all-time scoring list.

By hitting a free throw late in the first quarter during Monday's game against the Phoenix Suns, LeBron passed former Nuggets great Alex English for 17th team all-time on the NBA's scoring list with 25,614 career points.

Next up on the list is Timberwolves forward Kevin Garnett, who had 26,029 points heading into tonight's action. In face, the guys ahead of Garnett (Clippers forward Paul Pierce and Spurs center Tim Duncan) are also still active. Here's the full list via Basketball-Reference, although it hasn't been updated to reflect LeBron passing English yet.
