LeBron James is on the brink of making history. He is just 63 points away from becoming the all-time NBA scoring leader, surpassing the legendary Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s record of 38,387 points. This is a feat that has only been achieved once since 1966 and is sure to be a momentous occasion.
James is no stranger to breaking records, but this one is special. He himself said, “I think it’s one of the greatest records in sports in general. It’s one of those records that you just don’t ever see or think that would be broken.”
At 38 years old, James is currently averaging 32.2 points per game in the last five games he has played. His career points per game average is 27.2, which is also an astonishing feat for a player of his age.
The question now is when will he break the record? He could do it as soon as Saturday, February 4th when the Lakers face the Pelicans at 6pET on ESPN2. He could also break it on Tuesday, February 7th against the Thunder at 10pET on TNT, or on Thursday, February 9th against the Bucks at 10pET on TNT. The final possibility is next Saturday, February 11th when the Lakers face the Warriors at 830pET on ABC.
Wherever and whenever James breaks the record, it is sure to be a momentous occasion. We can’t wait to see it happen.
