LeBron James is closing in on Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s all-time scoring record, and the Los Angeles Lakers superstar could break the record as soon as Tuesday at Crypto.com Arena against the Oklahoma City Thunder. James is 36 points away from passing Abdul-Jabbar’s regular season scoring mark of 38,387 career points.
James is averaging 30 points per game this season. He scored 27 points against the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday in his last game, 26 points on Feb. 2, 28 points on Jan. 31 and 41 points on Jan. 28. If he does not set the record Tuesday, the Lakers’ next game is Thursday also at home against the Milwaukee Bucks.
James arrived to Thursday’s game certainly looking like he was ready to get down to business and claim the crown.
