Lebron James Breaks The NBA's All-Time Scoring Record


Lebron James broke the NBA’s all-time scoring record on Tuesday as he surpassed the previous record holder, Kareem Abdul Jabar, giving him the crown he has been chasing since he entered the league back in 2003. 


Going into the 7th February game, James needed 36 points to become the new record holder. He scored 38.


The previous NBA record was set back in April of 1984 when Jabar set the record with 31,419 points. 


He finished his career holding the record with 38,387 points. 


James, 38, entered the night with 38,352 points and ended with what now stands as the new NBA record, 38,390 points. 


This record was held for 39 years. 


James, who was drafted by the Cleveland Cavaliers out of high school in 2003, has created a stamp on the league that will ultimately last forever. 


With a dominating career that has seen him win NBA championships with three different organizations, James does not seem to be slowing down anytime soon.


With a scoring record now in the books, James’ accolades simply speak for themselves. 


After being drafted by Cleveland and originally failing to win a championship there, James left and signed with the Miami Heat in 2010 to create what was known as a "super team." 


A super team that consisted of the "Big 3," three players by the names of Lebron James, Dwayne Wade, and Chris Bosh


The Miami Heat went on to win back-to-back NBA Championships in 2012 and 2013, giving James his first two NBA rings. 


This came after he faced much backlash for the way he left Cleveland. 


James later returned to the Cavaliers in 2014, taking them to four straight NBA championships and ultimately winning one for the organization in the 2015-16 season. 


This was the city's first major sports championship in 52 years. 


Now, James chases his 5th NBA championship with the Los Angeles Lakers, whom he won during the 2020 NBA season. 


Along with his scoring record, James’ legacy will live on forever beyond his time playing in the league. 


Now, the only thing on his mind is taking the Lakers back to the top of the world in basketball.
