James, who scored 38,352 points until the previous game, needs 36 points. Since James’ average point average was 30.3 this time, his record was expected to be achieved in the next game.
However, after showing good condition, James scored his 36th point in the game and his 38,388th point in his career with 10.9 seconds left at the end of the third quarter.
It surpassed Abdul-Jabbar’s 38,387 points, which was considered an immortal record. Now, what remains for James is 40,000 points that no one has ever surpassed.
James signed a two-year contract with the Los Angeles Lakers in August. As a result, James can play until the 2024-25 season, when he is at least 40 years old.
As a result, James’ chances of scoring 40,000 points in his career are very high. With 27 games remaining this season, there are 1612 points left before LeBron’s 40,000 points.
With the current trend, it is difficult to achieve within this season. James is expected to reach 40,000 points early in the 2023-24 season after occupying the 39,000 point mark this season.
The specific expected date is expected to be January 2024. Of course, James turns 40 in 2024, so he has to watch out for injuries more than anything else.
