LeBron James is thisclose to surpassing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's record to become the NBA's career scoring leader.
He needs just 36 more points! Will he get it tonight when the Lakers play the Oklahoma City Thunder? Experts say it's possible, but it's more likely that he will set the record on Thursday when the Lakers face the Milwaukee Bucks. Why? He has scored 36 or more points in seven of his 43 games, including six times in his 16 games since his birthday on December 30th.
James has scored 38,352 points in 1,409 games over 20 seasons. Abdul-Jabbar scored 38,387 points in 1,560 games over 20 seasons. He has held the record since 1984.
Tonight's game will be televised by Spectrum SportsNet and ESPN2 at 7 p.m.
