NBA Updates: LeBron Becomes 2nd Player to Earn 38,000 Points


Just In: NBA’s spearhead LeBron James becomes the 2nd athlete in NBA History to score 38,000 Points as he nears breaking Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s all-time record. James reached this milestone against Philadelphia, where his team lost 113-112.

While playing in his 20th NBA season, James needed 11 points to hit the 38,000 points mark. Of course, he achieved it after hitting a mid-range jumper in the first quarter of the Los Angeles home game against the Philadelphia 76ers, moving past the record.

Even though James scored 35 points, it was not an entirely his night as the Lakers lost 113-112. Notably, James started his career playing for Cleveland Cavaliers and then moved to Miami Heat. He currently averages 29 points per game this season.

The 38-year-old forward stars in an astonishing NBA Career, glittering with Four-Time Championships and Four-times MVP. Of course, he is looking to break former Lakers center Abdul Jabber’s record of 38,387 in the upcoming games.

It is pertinent to mention that James is just 363 points behind Abdul-Jabber, and experts are predicting that he will possibly break the record within a week, closely observing his NBA Stats and Scoring Averages.

Notably, when James turned 38 the past month, the all-time best Abdul Jabber wished his Birthday Day with the Message, “38 is the new 38,388,” and James is almost there to fulfill the legends wish.
