Today’s Sports Stat: March 26, 2018

LeBron James last night became the third player in NBA history to have 2,000 or more points in 10 or more seasons. James joins Karl Malone (12 2,000-point seasons) and Michael Jordan (11 2,000-point seasons) on this exclusive list,.

It’s interesting to note that while James has amassed 10 2,000-point seasons since he came in the league in 2003-04, there are a handful of NBA franchises that have not had a 2,000-point scorer on their team in a very, very long time.

The Memphis Grizzlies franchise has not had a 2,000-point scorer in their career. The closest they got was in 1997-98 when Shareef Abdur-Rahim scored 1,829 points, the franchise record.

Here is a look at the teams that have not had a 2,000-point scorer this century. (Current franchise city is noted.)
