How Close Is LeBron James to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s All-Time NBA Scoring Record

James, who turned 38 years old in December, was drafted No. 1 overall in the 2003 NBA Draft by the Cleveland Cavaliers. Since then, he's won four National Basketball Association championships, four Finals MVPs and four league MVPs. He's also been named an All-Star 18 times, one shy of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's record of 19 All-Star appearances, and in 2022, he was named to the NBA's 75th Anniversary Team.

The Los Angeles Lakers player surpassed Karle Malone to the second place in the list in March 2022 against the Washington Wizards, and is inching closer to the top spot held by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

Jabbar clocked a total of 38,387 points during his time in the professional basketball league. LeBron has an overall tally of 37,965 points and is within touching distance to Jabbar.

LeBron has played 30 games this season and registered 8803 points, averaging just under 29 points per game. At this pace, the 38-year-old is likely to break Jabbar’s record in 15 games.

The race to the most points in NBA adds weight to LeBron’s claim as the greatest of all time in the league, and the game’s history.
James is currently averaging 29 points per game on 51% shooting from the field and 30.1% from behind the 3-point line, in addition to 8.2 rebounds and 6.6 assists per game.

LeBron James had 37 point against Sacramento, and now 423 points away from Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's historic points.

LeBron James continues to creep closer to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar scoring record . After scoring 37 points in the Lakers' wild 136-134 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Saturday. James averaging 38 points in his last four games, is now within 423 points of becoming the NBA's all time leading scorer.

James averaging 29.1 points per game. If he maintains that pace, he would need 15 more games to pass Kareem scored points. If the pace is maintained, the record would come against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Feb. 7 at home.

If James does take a few extra games to break Jabbar's record, the league surely won't mind; the Lakers host the Milwaukee Bucks on Feb. 9 and visit the Golden State Warriors on Feb. 11, both on national television.

LeBron's last three games: 37 at Sacramento; 25 at Atlanta, 43 at Charlotte
LeBron's next three games: at Denver (Jan. 9), vs. Dallas (Jan. 12), vs. Philadelphia (Jan. 15)
