Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, with 38 thousand 387 points in the regular season, is the top scorer in NBA history while LeBron James appears in second place with 37 thousand 62 points, so this season is a feasible possibility for the one from Akron, Ohio to hang on top of the record.
Last year, LeBron became the top scorer in NBA history if you add the points earned in the regular season with those from the playoff gamesbut the official league record does not take into account scoring outside of the first elimination stage of the campaign.
“Being here and knowing that I’m about to probably break the most wanted record in the NBAsomething that people said could possibly never be achieved, it’s super overwhelming for me and super cool,” he said Monday at a press conference for the Lakers’ NBA Media Day.
“Every time my name is mentioned among the greats, like Wilt Chamberlain, Michael Jordan, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar or others, it is extremely overwhelming.“, Added the star of Ohio, whose main mission is to return to the postseason to the gold and purple team with a view to achieving the eighteenth franchise championship.
Apart from the record LeBron, who will turn 38 in December, will once again be the leader of the Lakers who will try to forget last year’s resounding failurein which they bet on a very veteran team and joined James, Anthony Davis, Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony, Dwight Howard and Rajon Rondo in the same squad.
Considered one of the great contenders for the ring in the preseason, the Lakers crashed in one of the biggest failures that are remembered in the NBA and were left out of the playoffs and the “play-in” by finishing the regular season in eleventh position in the Western Conference (33-49).
