Recent reports have revealed that Kareem Abdul-Jabbar could be in the stadium when LeBron James breaks his scoring record.
LeBron James is widely regarded as one of the best players to ever step foot on a basketball court. The Los Angeles Lakers superstar is currently in his 20th season in the NBA and boasts a career that any rookie would dream to have, having won four NBA Championships, four regular season MVPs and having shattered a number of records along the way to where he is right now.
It was only last season that LeBron became the only player in NBA history to rack up 10,000 points, rebounds and assists – and currently, in his 20th season in the league, LeBron is in the top ten in both all-time charts for points and assists. While he is fourth on the all-time assists tally, he is closing in on Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s long standing record of most points scored in the NBA.
Having racked up 38,325 points over twenty years in the NBA, LeBron James is currently only 63 points away from breaking Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s record of 38,387 points – the most scored by any player in the history of the NBA. While it has been speculated if Abdul-Jabbar will be in attendance to watch James break his record, it has recently been revealed that there is a chance.
What has recently been revealed about Kareem Abdul-Jabbar being in attendance to watch LeBron James break his record?
It has been revealed that Abdul-Jabbar will be in the stands for two Lakers home games in which James is likely to surpass him and become the NBA’s all-time leading scorer.
Abdul-Jabbar and James have been known to share a frosty relationship amid a range of public disagreements leaving some to speculate whether the former would want to witness the fall of the record he has held for nearly four decades. While Abdul-Jabbar has previously criticized LeBron for his on-court celebrations, LeBron said that there is no relationship between the two.
However, it turns out that Abdul-Jabbar will be in attendance to watch the next two Lakers games at the Crypto.com Arena. While the Lakers head to New Orleans to take on the Pelicans on Saturday, they will return to LA to face the Thunder on Tuesday and the Bucks on Thursday – where James will hope to become the all-time top scorer of the NBA.
