In the eternal debate over who is the best player of all time, LeBron James has added another boost by breaking Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s all-time points record. A list in which Karl Malone is third and Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan, the two great stars with whom El Rey shares Olympus, are fourth and fifth respectively. LeBron has no doubt. He is the chosen one. “I always feel that I am the best that has ever played basketball,” he remarked after his latest achievement.
LeBron’s 20 seasons in the elite and beyond points, his status as a formidable complete player with appearances at the helm of many statistics is in his favor. A gluttony that hasn’t stopped. James wants to keep playing while waiting for his last dream of sharing the track with his son Bronnie, who may take part Format In 2024, to coincide with his father in the final year of his contract with the Lakers. “I know I can play for a few more years. The way I feel, the way my body has been reacting throughout this season. In the end it’s about my mind. If I want to continue I stay motivated and try to compete for the championship, if I feel motivated to prepare myself every day, I will continue to play”, he said, marking a new milestone in his royal career.
For now, LeBron has to suffer with the Lakers, who lost 130-33 at home to Oklahoma on the day of their star’s party. At the end of the first two quarters, the Los Angeles team had already conceded 76 points. It was the Lakers’ 30th loss in 55 games, third last in the Western Conference. James also expressed his regret that he could not sign Kyrie Irving before the market closed on Thursday. The Nets point guard will join Luka Doncic in Dallas.
“I never thought anyone would break Kareem’s scoring record, but it just shows how special you are and what you’ve done for basketball around the world. You changed the game”, LeBron’s basket and the Lakers, Magic Johnson praised another myth.
