‘It wasn’t a goal of mine’ LeBron James addresses the possibility of breaking Kareem Abdul Jabbar’s record for most points scored in NBA history

LeBron James is commonly referred to as “King James,” and there are multiple reasons why the 38-year-old is the rules of this sporting universe. Like any great conqueror and king, James had to work hard to rise to his throne. From the day he started his career, the “L-Train” slowly began its journey from the platform, gently increasing its pace, and once James formed a steady base, he accelerated, awaiting to reach his destined station. 

The Akron Hammer, over the years, has made his teams proud with groundbreaking performances that allowed him to bring victories, which at certain points seemed unlikely. With his charismatic gameplay and raw force, James has achieved a lot in the NBA-“Making All-Star team, being Rookie of the Year, being First Team All-NBA, First Team All-Defense, winning a championship for sure, being MVP of the league (were goals).” Moreover, there is no telling how rapidly will the L-Train train reach its destination- becoming “the ultimate GOAT of the NBA.”

To reach his goal, James must first pay a visit to a station that he never thought of going to -“most pointer station”- a destination Kareem Abdul Jabbar has stopped his journey and now comfortably sitting there for more than two decades since 1984. Recently, James is just around the corner of Jabbar with 37,965 points and seems to break Kareem’s 38,387 points record. With his current standings, LeBron has spoken about getting close to Lew.

What did LeBron James say?

LeBron James, even with multiple injuries, this season has played his heart out and proved why he is the ultimate “King,” scoring 37 against the Kings bringing victory from the jaws of defeat as the score reads 134-138. When asked a few days before the game how being the NBA’s all-time leading scorer compared to other achievements in his career, James said, “I don’t know.”

Later on, LeBron went on to say, 

“I don’t know because I have not set out to do that — it wasn’t a goal of mine when I entered the league,”

“The scoring record was never ever even thought of in my head because I’ve always been a pass-first guy. I’ve always loved the excitement of seeing the success of my teammates.”

“Over the course of my career, I’ve just gotten better with every facet of my game,”

“There were times when I didn’t really have a low-post game — I wasn’t a low-post threat. There were times when I wasn’t a threat from the mid-range. There were times when I wasn’t a threat from outside. There were times where you could literally just try to bait me into doing things that I wasn’t great at.” James added.

Finally, he ended his statement by saying, “I’ve evolved into where I do what I want to do on the floor.”

The great monarch of LeBron continues to rise, and stats are evident in his words. Having played over twenty seasons, King James has built an unstoppable empire. How far will LeBron go? Only time will tell.
