Climbing the mountain of the NBA's all-time leading scorers
I absolutely love this chart. Why do I like it so much?
- The active players are clearly marked
- It’s uncluttered
- 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.
