The American guard, who started his career at Hapoel Galil Elyon in the National League, led Monaco to an 79:83 victory over Zalgris Kaunas moved up to third place in the Euroleague basket kings table • He overtook Juan Carlos Navarro and is now behind Vassilis Spanoulis and Nando de Colo


If in 2013 Mike James, a player of Hapoel Galil Elyon of the second division in Israel, had been told that in ten years he would be in third place in the Euroleague's all-time scoring chart, he probably would have believed it, but no one else would have taken you seriously.

But this evening (Friday) it happened, in the middle of the second quarter of the game between Žalgris Kaunas and Monaco, in which the team from the principality beat the Lithuanians 79:83. The point guard got the ball and scored a tough basket, bringing him to his 4153rd point in the factory. James passed Juan Carlos Navarro, who scored 4152 career points, to become the third most Euroleague all-time scorer. James reached the milestone with 257 career games, with Navarro in first place with 358.

In the game itself, James scored 25 points on more than 50% shooting from the field, to which he added 8 rebounds and an assist, leading Monaco to its eighth win this season, against five losses so far.
