 King LeBron James (38) became the NBA scoring leader.

LeBron scored 38,388 points with a fade away jump shot near the free throw with 10 seconds left in the third quarter against the Oklahoma City Thunder at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles on the 8th (Korean time). As a result, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38.387), who had been the top scorer for 34 years, fell to second place.

The game was suspended for a while as the scorer became the top scorer. LeBron brought his mother, wife and children to the court to share in the joy. Commissioner Adam Silver and legend Abdul-Jabbar congratulated LeBron on becoming the top scorer.

The 19-year-old LeBron, who was selected as the first overall draft pick by the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2003, started with 25 points in his debut with the Sacramento Kings on October 29 of this year and became the NBA scoring leader at the age of 38 with 1,410 games against OKC Thunder on the 7th. Karim debuted at the age of 22 after graduating from UCLA. In his final season, when he was 42 years old, Karim’s scoring average was just 10.1. Lebron is averaging 30 points this year and is still reminiscent of his prime.

Comparing the two legends, Karim scored 38,387 points in 1560 games in 20 seasons, and LeBron scored 38,390 points in 1410 games in 20 seasons. On this day he scored 38 points. The먹튀검증 season average is 27.2 for Lebron and 24.5 for Karim. The two points are 15,836 for Karim and 11,025 for LeBron. The 3 points are Lebron 2,245 and Karim 3 points. Tall center Karim, 218 cm tall, attempted 18 3-pointers in his career and only succeeded in one. The free throw scores were 9,304 by Karim and 8,047 by Lebron.

The top scorer title is Karim twice and Lebron once. The two legends were ranked 1st and 2nd in NBA scoring while working steadily without major injuries. In fact, Karim’s score of 38,387 was considered an unbreakable record. In 1984, when Karim surpassed Wilt Chamberlain’s 31,419 points and rose to No. 1 in the NBA, Lakers legend caster Go Chick Hearns predicted that “Karim’s scoring record would be difficult to break in the future,” but after Karim retired in 1989, 34 years later, LeBron broke this record.

With this, LeBron rose to the GOAT position as the only player to lead three teams to the top along with the NBA scoring title. He won 4 regular season MVPs and 4 NBA titles. Karim led the Milwaukee Bucks and LA Lakers to the top six times, and won the regular season MVP award six times, the most in the NBA.

After the match, Lebron said in an interview with TNT, “It became a reality. He didn’t expect to come this far. It is the result of running for a long time without major injuries. He was able to set the scoring record thanks to a good 3 team, a good coach and teammates,” he said.
