Today in Sports History: April 8

On April 8, 1989, Denver’s Alex English passed the 2,000-point mark for the season during the Nuggets’ 110-106 win over Utah, becoming the first player in NBA history to record eight straight seasons of 2,000 or more points. The record has since been extended, with Karl Malone, Michael Jordan, and LeBron James all recording 10+ seasons through their career. While English’s record was passed, he was one of the earlier high-volume scorers, being the top scorer in the NBA in the 1980s.
