All-Time leaders in All-Sports are a tough one to peg.
Allen, the all-time leading scorer in NBA history, is the best in the game at basketball, but he has also made the case that he should be considered the best at the position in basketball.
All-NBA selections are a rarity in basketball and are awarded to a player who is considered the greatest at his position, regardless of his overall record.
It is an important distinction that Allen and his peers don’t often earn.
Allen is the only player in NBA History to score at least 1,500 points in each of his four seasons, but that is hardly a singular accomplishment.
He also has a reputation as a clutch player and an efficient scorer, and those qualities are well-known among NBA fans and analysts.
But in the case of basketball, Allen is more likely to be remembered for what he did in his last two seasons, including leading the NBA in scoring and shooting.
The last two years in particular have been a roller coaster ride for Allen, who played in all but two of his last 37 games and was forced to miss time due to a knee injury.
Allen has averaged a career-high 28.9 points per game over his last six, and he is averaging 27.8 points on 46.6 percent shooting in that span.
Allen was limited to a mere four games last season after suffering a torn ACL in his right knee.
But he was able to play at a high level and was the primary scorer in a strong Clippers team that made the playoffs for the first time in 10 years.
Allen scored in double figures for the fourth time this season and also scored in triple figures for his first time this postseason.
He has averaged 24.6 points and 12.8 rebounds per game in his career.
His most productive games were his 30 points and 10 rebounds in a loss to the Atlanta Hawks on Feb. 15 and his 29 points in a 112-111 win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Feb
