The NBA career of LeBron James is stunning. However, given that the Los Angeles Lakers player will shortly turn 38, supporters must embrace the reality that we won’t get to see his excellence for very long.

Even while LeBron James takes excellent care of his body, he can only do so much to delay the inevitable. LeBron will, however, have a resume that is even more impressive than it is now when he retires.

James might perhaps win a few more rings before calling it a career. However, there is no evidence to support it. Another record that James is currently edging closer to breaking will almost certainly be accomplished in the future season given the manner he performed last year.

We’re not only talking about breaking Kareem Abdul-record Jabbar’s for most points ever scored in an NBA game. Kareem is presently in the first place and has 38,387 points to his credit.

LeBron James, who has 37,062 points to his name, is just behind him. James is about to begin his 20th season in the NBA. In the past, if an NBA player played this long, their career was already over.

However, James has shown that he still has a lot of gas in his tank during the 2021–22 NBA season. LeBron merely has to score 16.2 points per game on average during the 2022–23 NBA season to surpass Kareem on the all-time scoring list.

LeBron can break Kareem’s record next season if he averages just 16.2 points per game, as stated in the tweet.

However, there is a catch: according to this computation, LBJ must play the full 82-game season. If he does not play in all 82 games, his PPG average will rise. Despite this, it is quite probable that he will beat Kareem’s record and add another gem to his crown next season.
