With less than a month left in the NBA regular season, there are a lot of questions that remain.
Who will be Rookie of the Year?
Who will snag the MVP trophy?
Who will end up as the number one seed?
Yet another question is which NBA talent will end up with the scoring title for this season.
In other words, who will score the most points, on average, per game?
The scoring title race is separated by 0.03 points.
29.83 — Embiid
29.81 — LeBron
29.80 — Giannis

Right now, the race is close.
In fact, saying it’s “close” is a severe understatement because it has never been so neck-and-neck ever before.
At the moment, Joel Embiid of the Philadelphia 76ers leads the pack with 29.83 per game.
Following him, we have LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers with 29.81 points.
Finally, Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks has 29.80 points a game.
That’s shockingly close and just goes to show that any one of these guys could come out on top in the end.
The Best Of The Best
Claiming the scoring title for the league is a big, big deal for any player.
It shows who has some of the most drive, determination, and, really, the most skill in the association.
It’s a huge feat, especially when you think of how hard it is to score 29 points per NBA game.
You have to remember that these guys are playing against the best defenders in the world and are still able to score nearly 30 points every single night.
It’s no surprise that the three men mentioned are also undeniably three of the best NBA players on Earth.
They really are the best of the best and no matter who wins the scoring title, each of the guys will remain legends.
