Latest line: Lakers -6. 5. Announcers: Brian Anderson, Stan Van Gundy and Stephanie Ready. Read some of what Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press wrote about what James breaking Abdul-Jabbar’s record could mean to the NBA. It’s about to happen. LeBron James is finally on the brink of passing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the NBA’s career scoring record, the torch getting passed from one member of the Los Angeles Lakers to another. James is 35 points away from Abdul-Jabbar’s total of 38, 387. The record-breaker could come as early as Tuesday when the Lakers host the Oklahoma City Thunder or Thursday in Los Angeles against the Milwaukee Bucks. Here’s the significance of James passing Abdul-Jabbar:WILL THIS RECORD BE BROKEN AGAIN? Perhaps, but no time soon.
James is on pace to eclipse the 40, 000-point mark next season and is under contract for one more season after that as well. And even then there’s no guarantee that he won’t continue playing; he has said many times he would like to stay in the NBA long enough for his son, LeBron James Jr. — he goes by “Bronny” — to get to the league, something that won’t happen until 2024-25 at the earliest. The closest player currently in the NBA to James on the all-time list is Brooklyn’s Kevin Durant, who has 26, 684 points.
