NBA leading scorer during Obama administration
Its Obama's inauguration day and I came across this interesting info
Kobe Bryant scored 20 points in the Lakers' win over the Cavaliers Monday night, giving him 17,340 points scored during the George W. Bush administration -- the second-highest total by an NBA player during a single administration (83 points short of Alex English's 17,423 points during the Reagan administration).
The scoring leaders for each administration:
Harry Truman: George Mikan
Dwight Eisenhower: Dolph Schayes
John F. Kennedy: Wilt Chamberlain
Lyndon Johnson: Wilt Chamberlain
Richard Nixon: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
Gerald Ford: Bob McAdoo
Jimmy Carter: George Gervin
Ronald Reagan: Alex English
George H.W. Bush: Michael Jordan
Bill Clinton: Karl Malone
George W. Bush: Kobe Bryant
Who do you think will be the leading scorer during the Obama administration?

And I'd say he has a chance to break any of the points posted during a single administration.
Because unlike Kobe he "matured" faster then expected.
I'd say before he's 30 he's going to have 25,000 points all time.

Lebron is the obvious choice, but I could see him being on such a good team that can coast for the next ten years, that he doesn't feel the need to win scoring titles and put up 30 a game. He's about the rings, not the points.
I like Claud's choice, KevDur. That guy could be a 30/game scorer for 7,8 years in a row on a team that requires him to post big scoring numbers. And he shoots the three ball so well.

LeBron is so about rings, if it meant winning, he could/would be a 10 assist a game guy, and his passing is definately better then most PGs (did i just say that? Yep.) So i could see him toning down the scoring if it did mean winning, good point.
