LeBron James’ career scoring ranking is imminent. In a word, it is a matter of time. Even after winning first place, there is a high possibility that they will continue to write new records at an unprecedented pace.
Born in 1984, James is currently 40 years old in Korean age. He is only 38 years old. Most of James’s peers, who dominated the era, are either retired or are in the twilight of their careers.
But James is having a phenomenal season that seems to have forgotten his age. Celebrating his 20th season in his NBA debut, James has played in 36 games for the Lakers this season, averaging 29.6 points, 8.4 rebounds and 7.0 assists, with a field goal rate of 50.6%.
This season is highly likely to be a very meaningful season for James, who was drafted in 2003. This is because he is on the verge of becoming the top scorer in his career.
James, who became the second player in NBA history to reach 38,000 points after Kareem Abdul-Jabbar against the Philadelphia 76ers on the 16th (Korean time), is now running toward Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the NBA’s all-time leading scorer, over 38,000 points. 스포츠토토
James scored 38,127 points in 1,305 NBA games. Abdul-Jabbar has a total score of 38,387 points. Abdul-Jabbar’s record was exactly 260 points away.
Barring variables like injuries, James will most likely beat Abdul-Jabbar’s record before the All-Star break in mid-February. If he consistently holds up his all-season scoring average of 29.6, he will arithmetically set a new record for an away game against the Oklahoma City Thunder on February 8th.
Considering the recent attack power, the time to achieve it may be earlier. James is showing off his explosive scoring ability, averaging 34.9 points in 9 games played since his 38th birthday. If this pace continues, he could break his new record in early February.
Anyway, it’s a matter of time. Even more surprising is James’ pace. If James writes a new record around February as predicted, he will write that record at the age of 38, which is an overwhelmingly faster pace in terms of the number of games and age than Abdul-Jabbar (1560 games, 42 years and 7 days). Even considering the fact that the era of offensive basketball has arrived in the NBA, he is much better at accumulating records than Abdul-Jabbar.
In 2013, when he was a Miami Heat, James said, “The 38,000 score itself is amazing. He expressed disapproval, saying, “I don’t know if he can challenge.
However, exactly 10 years later, James is still dominating the league, showing off his best skills even at the age of 10 years ahead. During this period, he easily surpassed the youngest score of 30,000 points and 38,000 points, and now he is looking at the record of first place in all-time scoring. His words, which seemed impossible, came right in front of my eyes.
Meanwhile, Kevin Durant of the Brooklyn Nets ranks second in active scoring. Durant, who came out of the 2007 draft, has put in 26,684 points so far. This is a record he left after playing only 978 games. Based on this, Durant is currently ranked 14th in the all-time scoring list. His career scoring average was 27.3, slightly above James’ record of 27.2.
