LeBron James breaks Kareem Abdul-Jabbar record

LeBron James is currently fewer than 400 points away from surpassing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as the NBA’s all-time greatest scorer. Which is a remarkable accomplishment for anyone, let alone someone who has always viewed himself as a pass-first player. James will pass the great Lakers centre later this season, barring any serious injury difficulties. At the beginning of the season, he talked about the forthcoming success.

But at the end of the day, I think it’s just super-duper dope for me to even be in that conversation with a person who worn this same uniform. A guy who was a staple of this franchise, along with Magic [Johnson]. Big Game [James Worthy] over there for so many years, especially in the ’80s.

Despite not being particularly close. James and Abdul-Jabbar will go down in history as the first two players to reach 38,000 points. And the two most prolific scorers the NBA has ever seen.

LeBron James came close to winning the scoring crown last year with a 30.3 point average. They ultimately disqualified him, since he was unable to participate in the necessary number of games. James is 10 years older than Joel Embiid, last year’s top scorer with 30.6 PPG.

In a recent interview, LeBron James said that unseating Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as the leading scorer was not something he had anticipated. He has always been a pass-first player who enjoys involving other players.
