Kareem Abdul-Jabbar scored 38,387 points in 20 NBA seasons with the Milwaukee Bucks and Los Angeles Lakers -- over 1400 more than his closest competitor. Kareem won six NBA championships and a matching six MVP awards, and at the time of his retirement was the NBA's all-time leader in points, blocks, MVP awards and All-Star appearances. His legendary fitness regimen kept him on the court until 1999, when he was 42 years old.
