LeBron James made history by breaking Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s record and thus becoming the all-time leading scorer in the NBA. “The King” achieved the record at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, home of the Lakers, in a game against the Oklahoma Thunder that will remain etched in the memory of all basketball fans and not because of the result but because of the feat of a LeBron James that today became eternal.
It is worth noting the presence of Abdul-Jabbar in the Los Angeles venue watching each of LeBron James’ points and witnessing the story of the man who took his baton so many decades after his great deeds.
This way LeBron James achieves a mark that seemed insurmountable and which was approached by basketball legends such as Karl Malone and even the legendary Michael Jordan. Notably, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar got the number of points in 1,560 games, while LeBron James just surpassed him in 1,410 games.
LeBron James reached the second quarter just 16 points from the historic mark that he would later achieve, after attacking the basket on countless occasions and with great patience, and with the quality that characterizes him and that he maintains intact today at 38 years of age. .
The historic player averages 30 points per game this season, and a total of 8.2 rebounds and 7.2 assists.
The Lakers fans applauded their idol and everyone present gave one of the best athletes of the decade an ovationto a born competitor who will always be sitting in the chair of the debate for the throne of the best player in history.
