LeBron James becomes the NBA is all time highest, beats Karim Abdul Jabbar

With 10.9 seconds left in the third quarter on Tuesday night, the 38-year-old surpassed Kareem Abdul-record Jabbar's of 38,387 points.

LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers broke Kareem Abdul-previous Jabbar’s mark on Wednesday to become the NBA’s all-time top scorer.
James has amassed the most points in NBA history as a result of converting his offensive versatility over the course of 20 seasons.

LeBron James has continued to establish himself as one of the greatest basketball players to ever step foot on an NBA court. His most recent accomplishment has led many to label him the “Greatest Of All Time,” displacing Michael Jordan, who held that title for many years without dispute.

The record-breaking basket came in the third quarter against the Oklahoma City Thunder, when LeBron James took the ball and took a step-back shot from just outside the paint to score his 36th point of the night, breaking a record that many believed would never even come close to being surpassed against a franchise that didn’t even exist when LeBron started playing in the league.

Prior to the game, the 38-year-old had been dealing with a day-to-day injury, a sore ankle. It implied that Anthony Davis’ inclusion as a starter was still improbable, raising further uncertainty about his starting spot. At the Crypto.com Arena, however, James kept his word and performed a remarkable performance while still in pain.

James thanked his family and friends

After James’ shot broke the record, they stopped the game for a ceremony featuring Abdul-Jabbar and NBA commissioner Adam Silver that took place on the court.

“I simply wanted to say thank you to the Laker fans. “You guys are one-of-a-kind,” James remarked. “It’s incredibly humbling to be in the presence of such a legend as great as Kareem. “Please give the Captain a standing ovation.”

James then thanked his family and others who had helped him.

“I thank you so much for enabling me to be a part of something I’ve always wanted to do,” James said after finishing the night with 38 points on 13-of-20 shooting, seven rebounds, three assists, and three steals in a 133-130 loss to the Lakers.

Abdul-Jabbar, who held the record since April 1984, has stated that he is pleased with James’ improvement. “I want [other players] to surpass my records because it is another standard of human advancement,” he wrote in 2019 for the Guardian. “… Every time an athlete displays that a person is capable of more than we imagined, they encourage all of humanity to recognise that they are capable of reaching further than they imagined feasible.”

LeBron James “The G.O.A. T”

With 10.9 seconds left in the third quarter on Tuesday night, the 38-year-old surpassed Kareem Abdul-record Jabbar’s of 38,387 points with a step-back fadeaway jumper from the foul line over the Oklahoma City Thunder’s Kenrich Williams.

Abdul-Jabbar played in 1,560 games to reach his total, whereas James did so in slightly more than 1,400. Michael Jordan averages 30.1 points per game, which is the most in NBA history. James is barely behind another active player, Kevin Durant, in fifth place on that list with 27.1. (27.3)

LeBron James has won NBA titles with three separate teams: the Miami Heat twice, the Cleveland Cavaliers once, and the Los Angeles Lakers once. He had a significant role in each of those victories.

James has always carried a heavy burden of expectations and strain on his shoulders, but much like diamonds are formed under extreme pressure, the LeBron legend was continuously being forged in win-or-go-home situations.
