Yesterday, Lakers star LeBron James achieved a historic milestone in the NBA, passing the 38,000–point mark and getting closer to Kareem Abdul–Jabbar‘s long–standing record. But despite James‘ remarkable feat, it was not enough to secure a win for the Lakers, who lost to the Philadelphia 76ers in a nail–biting 112–113 match.
James began the game with 37,989 points and quickly made his mark by scoring 11 points in the first quarter, setting the tone for a tremendous individual performance. His incredible athleticism and sensational shooting prowess were on full display throughout the match, as he scored a total of 35 points, 8 rebounds, and 10 assists by the end of the night.
With only a few minutes to go, the Lakers were down 113-111 and in need of a miracle to stay in the game. James stepped up to the challenge and delivered an awe-inspiring dunk that brought the Lakers within one point of the lead. But despite his remarkable effort, the Lakers were unable to make the comeback, eventually losing the game by one point.
Nevertheless, James’ performance was highly commendable, as he became the first player in NBA history to pass the 38,000-point mark after the legend Abdul Kareem’s record of 38,387 points. If James maintains his current average of 29 points per game, EFE predicts that he will surpass Abdul–Jabbar‘s record and become the NBA‘s all–time leading scorer by February.
James has already set numerous records in his illustrious career. He is the all-time leader in career points, assists, steals, and triple-doubles. The four-time MVP award winner is now looking to set the ultimate record in basketball and become the winningest player in NBA history. He is currently just 364 points away from Abdul-Jabbar’s record. And if he can accomplish this feat, he will cement his legacy as the GOAT of the NBA.
