LeBron James is on the verge of another milestone. The Miami Heat forward has scored at least 10 points in 499 consecutive regular-season games. He goes for No. 500 tonight when the two-time defending NBA champions visit the Toronto Raptors. James would become only the fifth player in NBA history with that many consecutive games of 10 or more points. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar did it twice (with separate streaks of 787 and 508 games). Michael Jordan (866), Karl Malone (575) and Moses Malone (526) are the only others to accomplish the feat.
