LeBron on beating Kareem: “It’s one of those records you don’t think is going to break”

Just 63 points away from becoming the leading scorer in NBA history, LeBron James opined that this is one of the most important brands not only in basketball but in all sports. “I think it’s one of the biggest records in sport in general.”, he pointed out in the press conference after the victory of the Los Angeles Lakers against the Indiana Pacers (111-112).

I think he’s up there with the home run record in baseball. It’s one of those records you don’t see or think is going to be broken. You see guys like Hank Aaron, who had it for so long. And then you see guys like Sammy Sosa or Mark McGwire start coming up and it’s like, ‘Oh, this could happen.’”, he added. “I don’t have the number as marked in my head (of the record for points in the NBA), I know that it is something more than 38,000 points, but I do know that Kareem has had it in my entire life”, he added.

LeBron, who scored 26 points this Thursday in the Los Angeles Lakers’ victory over the Pacers, He is only 63 points away from surpassing the legendary mark of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387 points). Considering that he is averaging 30.2 points per game and that the Angels will face the Pelicans on Saturday, LeBron will most likely achieve the record on Tuesday against the Thunder or on Thursday against the Bucks (both games will be played in The Angels).

The Lakers came back to beat the Pacers this Thursday with a great reaction in the last quarter (15-28). Anthony Davis, with a fundamental basket and block in the last minute, stood out with 31 points and 14 rebounds and vindicated himself after being left out of the All-Star.
