LeBron James 158 points away from breaking Kareem Abdul Jabbar’s all-time scoring record

published

LeBron James is all set to lead his Los Angeles Lakers via a 5-game road trip starting Saturday against the Boston Celtics. Given that the King is only 158 points away from surpassing the legendary Kareem Abdul Jabbar in the NBA All-Time scoring list, fans are speculating if the 38-year-old could return form as the leading scorer or not.

Given that Bron has to average less than 32 points in a game, King James is all set to rewrite NBA history. The iconic No. 6 currently has 38,230 points, and will be achieving this as a Laker, as Kareem set the record while playing for the Los Angeles Lakers as well. Both former No. 1 picks won championships with the Lakers after also winning titles with the teams that originally drafted them. Kareem did it with the Bucks, while LeBron won the NBA Championship with the Cavs.

While plenty of fans might be having eyes on LeBron James just being 158 points away from Kareem, he is just getting started to ramp up more accolades against his name.

What is even more impressive is that Lakers superstar LeBron James, with 10,319 assists, is also just 16 assists away from surpassing Mark Jackson, with 10,334, for the fifth-most in NBA history. This just goes on to show how all-rounded and multi-talented he is as a player on the NBA hardwood.
