NBA: when will LeBron James break Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s record?
LeBron James is very close to breaking the historic record for points scored in the NBA held by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. It could happen in a few days.
38,387 points. This is the mark set by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar after his last career game NBA April 23, 1989. A record. More than 38 years later, LeBron James is on the way to overtaking him.
“King James”, who is not having the best season of his franchise career (the Lakers have been out of the Top 10 in the Western Conference since the start of the season), has crossed the 38,000 point mark (38,271 pts). He only has 117 units left to beat “KAJ”. And it could achieve this in early February, according to estimates. Provided you do not miss any meeting by then.
According to ESPN, which set up a tally, LeBron James could beat that Kareem Abdul-Jabbar record on Feb. 11 against the Golden State Warriors. But with the King, anything is possible, including a series of big performances.
