The boiled-down, bottom-line determining factor in the sport is who puts the ball in the basket. The all-time scoring leader is the holy grail of individual accomplishments, and cracking the top 50 of the thousands and thousands to play in theNBAis special.

DeRozan toldThe Athletiche never envisioned reaching the 20,000-point plateau.

Id be lying to you if I tell you I thought that, he said. I really just think day-by-day. I dont try to ever look too far ahead of anything because it may not come and you dont want to set up pre-determined disappointment in yourself. And so I just try to do one thing at a time. And if that adds up to whatever it adds up to, Ill be happy with that.

Bulls coach Billy Donovan admired DeRozans scoring knack from afar for years. But until DeRozan arrived in Chicago last season, Donovan didnt know the depths of DeRozans desire to master his craft. That, Donovan said, is what has separated DeRozan.

His workouts are incredibly meticulous. He is very, very detailed, Donovan said. He watches a lot of film. He watches a lot of NBA games. He works a lot on the mental preparation. Ive been fortunate to be around some great players. Their routines may be a little bit different. But their mentality is very much on point. There is an incredible attention to detail and an incredible focus.

DeRozan, 33, is already at No. 50 all time in points and will continue to climb that ladder. He has registered at least 1,400 points in nine of his 13 seasons, including the career-high 2,118 he scored for the Bulls during his renaissance, All-Star campaign of 2021-22.

Barring injury, DeRozan could finish this season 37th on the all-time scoring list, ahead of Hal Greer. If we want to get really wild and DeRozan repeats his output from a year ago, he could be as high as 35th, ahead of Gary Payton (21,813 points) and Larry Legend, theCelticsLarry Bird (21,791 points).

Stephen Curryand Chris Paul are immediately ahead of DeRozan on this list and still active, so predicting an exact landing spot for DeRozan is a bit of a guessing game. But this is the kind of air in which DeRozan, a five-time All-Star, is moving. As he continues to climb this list, the likelihood of his Hall of Fame candidacy grows.

The closest active player behind DeRozan is PortlandsDamian Lillard, who is 85th on the all-time list, with 17,643 career points.

Its a huge accomplishment. Its a lot of points, teammateNikola Vučevićsaid of DeRozan. It speaks to consistency, him doing it for so long every night. Its an impressive feat.
