5. Wilt Chamberlain* 31,419
6. Dirk Nowitzki 30,624
7. Julius Erving* 30,026

Seeing as he'll be "trying" to pass these guys, as well as 31k, 32k, 33k, etc.
I "vote" for keeping tabs each step of the way; i.e., either to pass __k milestones OR to pass the All-Top Top 7.

A friendly reminder...

Wilt was the FASTEST to 30,000.

GOAT.

this is not about the fastest

but youngest to 30k and LeBron is not a scorer but a play maker

and only LeBron has the chance to beat Kareem's All Time Leading points

True (but a bit irrelevant for THIS thread we're participating in).

I'd caution against saying "LeBron is not a scorer...". Of course, he IS a scorer - you don't rack up 30,000 points if you are NOT a scorer.

Wouldn't it be a good deal more precise to say something like:
LeBron is a (uniquely multi-skilled) TEAM-first guy; so he does whatever he thinks will best help his TEAM win. When his team can't score enough points to have even a tiny chance to win (a la the 2015 Finals); he'll focus more than usual on scoring. When that's not the case, his tendency to pass to team-mates (and rebound & defend & teach/coach) comes more to the fore.
