LeBron James, one of the best-known stars in the world of basketball, managed to become this Sunday the second player in NBA history to reach 38,000 points scored in the most important American tournament of the sport.
The Los Angeles Lakers star was missing only 11 points to reach that feat and he wasted no time in his game against the Philadelphia 76ers, This is motivated by the fact that it reached that figure before the end of the first quarter of said match.
To achieve this goal, LeBron conducted a mid-distance frontal shot was the one that allowed him to add 38,000 points. With this significant amount of points scored, the American only remains behind the legend like Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who has the all-time record for accumulated points in the regular season with 38,387.
With this in mind, if James continues like this, averaging 29 points per game, it is believed that the 38-year-old will surpass Abdul-Jabbar in February, which would give him the crown as the top scorer in NBA history.
“To be here and know that I’m about to probably break the most sought after record in the NBA.something that people said could never be achieved, It’s super overwhelming for me and super cool.”LeBron said at the Lakers’ media day at the start of the season.
“Every time my name is mentioned among the greats, like Wilt Chamberlain, Michael Jordan, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar or others, it’s super overwhelming.” added LeBron James.
Right now, the game is at halftime and the Lakers lead Philadelphia 58-57.
