07:54 AM ET 01.16 | Three-time scoring champ Kevin Durant is off to a good start in his young career, but has a long way to go before getting past Wilt Chamberlain, Michael Jordan, Karl Malone and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Durant smiles and shakes his head at the mere thought. "I don't know if I would say I'll be the best scorer ever to play the game," Durant said, "but if I keep working, you never know." ... "I think he certainly has the talent," Abdul-Jabbar said. "It all depends on if he stays healthy and is the focus of the offense, because he can score from anywhere on the court." Abdul-Jabbar also noted Durant's overall progress each season. "He's not just in it to put up numbers," Abdul-Jabbar said. "He wants to win and understands what the game's about."

Kobe will break it, than Lebron, than finally Durant.

Neither Kobe or Lebron will break that record... Kobe will just break Malone and MJ's record then call it a career.

Kobe won't hit the 36K mark.

QUOTE(#1):

Most of the older records will be broke since kids are coming in earlier.These accumulating records though aren't so important as greatness is defined by the amount of rings you end up with

I guess Robert Horry, Steve Kerr, and Ron Harper should be shoe-ins for the HOF then.
