Q: Who scored the NBA’s 10 millionth point?

A: Ben Gordon

Per NBA.com…

It’s been over 63 years since New York’s Ossie Schectman scored the first basket in NBA history on Nov. 1, 1946, at Maple Leaf Gardens, and tonight Ben Gordon of the Detroit Pistons scored the 10 millionth point in NBA regular season history.

It was Gordon’s successful jumpshot at The Palace of Auburn Hills with 3:51 remaining in the second quarter of the Pistons-76ers game that represented the 10,000,000th point in NBA history.

These milestones are fairly random, but it’s interesting to look at a list of who scored every millionth point. Other than Moses Malone, every player on the list is a perimeter player.
