LeBron James Nears NBA’s All-Time Scoring Record Held by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has held the record since he retired in 1989, and it is widely considered to be one of the most iconic records in sports. James, who is widely regarded as one of the greatest basketball players of all time, has been closing in on the record for some time, and many believe that he will break it this season.
As the all-time points leader, Abdul-Jabbar has set a high bar for James to reach. However, James has been consistently putting up impressive numbers throughout his career and has already established himself as one of the all-time greats in the sport. Whether he will be able to break Abdul-Jabbar’s record remains to be seen, but there is no doubt that he will continue to make an impact on the game for years to come.
