NBA: Most Total Points of All Time (Regular Season + Playoffs)

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: Still the Most Points

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: Still the Most Points

With the NBA playoffs cruising through Round 1, Sports List of the Day has been checking out postseason scoring records, like most points in a playoff game and most points in playoff history.

Some time ago, we also looked at the greatest all-time scorers of the regular season.

Now, lets combine regular- and post- season totals to see which players truly have seen the bottom of the net more than anyone else in the universe.

I took the top 150 all-time points leaders and top 150 all-time postseason points leaders – just to make sure no one slipped through the floor boards – did a little spreadsheetin’, and voila: the Top 20 All-Time Scorers in NBA History, Regular Season + Postseason.
