If not for a prolonged injury absence, it is likely that LeBron James will break the career record of 38,387 points in Kareem’s Abdul-Jabbar this season. With 43 points scored in the match against the Charlotte Hornets, LeBron currently has 37,903 points.
LeBron James is close to the legendary record
LeBron is currently averaging 29 points per game. If he maintains this pace and does not sit out any games, he will officially hold the No. 1 position in the NBA’s all-time scoring chart in New Orleans on February 4.
Abdul-Jabbar said when asked about LeBron’s ability to break records: “I’m happy to see that happen. I do not consider the record to be an individual achievement, but rather it is the limit of each person. If one person can do something that has never been done, that means we all have a chance to do it. It is a source of hope and inspiration. We all win when records are broken and if LeBron breaks mine, I’ll be right there cheering him on.”
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is one of the greatest legends of NBA basketball. Not only is a top scorer in the NBA, Abdul-Jabbar is also known as one of the most unstoppable players with his “sky hook” technique. He is known as the greatest icon in the Los Angeles Lakers with 5 championships for the team from the city of angels.
