Climbing the mountain of the NBA's all-time leading scorers

I absolutely love this chart.  Why do I like it so much?

  1. The active players are clearly marked
  2. It’s uncluttered
  3. But my most favorite is the ascending ranking; it gives me the impression that Kobe is climbing a mountain, which he really is given how far he needs to go to get anywhere near Kareem

The only thing I would have changed is the background.  The dark gray background makes the blue/gray bars a bit tough to see.
