As he celebrates his 34th birthday, LeBron James' 16-year NBA career has been defined by game-winning shots, posterizing dunks and historic moments. (2:47)

LeBron James is one of the most dominant scorers in NBA history. He has scored 31,966 points, which is fifth all-time and only 326 points shy of Michael Jordan, who ranks fourth.

On LeBron's 34th birthday, let's take a quick look back at his buckets. All of them.

When you map out James' career 23,039 field goal attempts, you see 11,620 made shots and 11,419 misses. James' has made just over half of his career shots (50.4 percent).

James has scored from everywhere, but the key to his game is in the paint. Over his 15-plus year career, almost 36 percent of his shots have come within 3 feet of the rim. He's the King of the restricted area, and he has combined his incredible basketball IQ with his physical blend of speed and power to score more points in the paint than any player this century. Meanwhile, he has proven to be a capable, but average jump shooter, converting 34 percent of his 4,892 3-point attempts.

But here's the thing: He's not done. At 34, he has a lot left in the tank and a lotta dots left to map out. Happy Birthday, LeBron.
