Who can surpass LeBron James’ all-time scoring record in the future?

LeBron James may surpass the 38,000-point threshold, given that he still has a few more years in him. James may potentially reach 40,000 points

LeBron James finally overtook Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the all-time scoring record on the evening of the 8th Feb, making history in the process. The LA Lakers lost to the OKC Thunder by a score of 133–130. “King” James now holds the all-time lead with 38,390 points after scoring 38 points to break the previous mark. For a player who has always been regarded to be a pass-first guy, it was such a momentous moment.

LeBron James may surpass the 38,000-point threshold, given that he still has a few more years in him. James may potentially reach 40,000 points if he keeps dominating into his old age. Which would make it more challenging to break his record.

However, it doesn’t follow that his record can never be beaten.

So it only seems to sense that we’re looking for the next record-breaker. The established stars and the up-and-comers with time on their side are the two sides of this coin. There is no shortage of new talent rising through the ranks. But there is a reason why Abdul-record Jabbar’s hasn’t been broken in nearly forty years.

Simply said, for any player to even have a chance of breathing this rarefied air, talent, health, and a little of luck must all line up. Here is a peek into the future at some prospective active players who might challenge the King. Also Read: Stephen Curry set to be Out for few weeks due to Injury

Players who can Surpass LeBron James all time scoring record:

Luka Doncic

One of the NBA’s newest players, Luka Doncic, is already breaking and setting records. When he broke the Dallas Mavericks player record for most points scored in a game in December. Doncic cemented his status as the best player in franchise history.

In light of this, it goes without saying that Luka Doncic is one of the league’s top scorers right now. Luka “Magic” is just short of 9,000 career points at the age of 23. Doncic is responsible for Dallas’ offensive and has only once in his brief career averaged more than 70 games made a season. Although he is only 23 years old, he is already a seasoned scorer. So it will be intriguing to see how Kyrie Irving’s presence affects him.

As a result, Doncic is well on his way to breaking LeBron James’ all-time scoring record.

Devin Booker

As he demonstrated when he scored 70 points in Boston in 2017 at the age of 20, or when he had three straight games with 40 or more points this past December. Booker can get as hot as anyone in the NBA. The guard has 12,000 points and just turned 26 a few months ago. If he can average a bit more than his 27.1 points per game for the next 12 seasons. He might make things interesting. Also Read: Golden State Warriors vs Los Angeles Lakers Prediction and Injury Report

Kevin Durant

Where better to begin a list than with James’ main rival today? In fact, given their fondness for super teams. It’s difficult to imagine they’ve never paired up if it weren’t for their history of rivalry and the almost insurmountable luxury tax this pair would face.

Aside from that, Kevin Durant represents James’ only real rival for the scoring crown. He’s scored 26,684 points thus far, and the current prediction is that he’ll finish with 36,865 points. His Achilles tear cost him a whole season and a half of play. But despite his history of ailments, his graceful style of play looks suited for the long haul. To catch LeBron, Durant would need to play 60 games every season, which would take him over ten seasons or until his age-45 season.
