Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James is chasing the all-time regular season record held by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Abdul-Jabbar scored 38,387 career points and has held the record since April 1984, eight months before James was born.
James is 117 stitches to claim the record. His career scoring average is 27.2 points per game with his 2022-23 season average at 30.2 points per game. At the pace of that season, James would set the record for February 7 against the Oklahoma City Thunder at Crypto.com Arena. He’s on course to become the all-time leading scorer ahead of the All-Star break, which begins on February 17.
James has missed 11 games this season after missing Monday’s 121-104 loss to the Brooklyn Nets.
James and the Lakers next play the New York Knicks at 7:30 p.m. ET Tuesday on TNT. James had 41 points Saturday night against the Boston Celtics. His career point total is now 38,271.
