Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James is chasing the regular season all-time scoring record held by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Abdul-Jabbar scored 38,387 career points and has held the record since April 1984, eight months before James was born.
James is 36 points from claiming the record. At this season's 30 ppg pace, James would set the record on Thursday against the Milwaukee Bucks at Crypto.com Arena, assuming he doesn't miss a game. It's certainly possible he does it on Tuesday against the Oklahoma City Thunder, though.
When will LeBron James set the scoring record?
