LeBron James nearing unprecedented 40,000-point milestone

LeBron James nearing unprecedented 40,000-point milestone

Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James is about to do something that has never been done in NBA history... again.

After surpassing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as the league’s all-time scoring leader last season, James is about to cross the 40,000-point mark – a feat that has never been done in the history of the game and that might stand for years (or decades) to come.

James scored 26 points on Monday night in the Lakers' win over the Charlotte Hornets and he is now 203 points away from the historic milestone. Considering his career average of 27 points per game, he is set to hit 40,000 points over the next month or so.

The 39-year-old James also holds the record for most points across the regular season and playoffs in a career, once again surpassing the great Abdul-Jabbar.

James, who is now in his 21st NBA season, has had an illustrious career filled with achievements and accolades that put him in the GOAT conversation.

‘The King’ is still going strong this season, averaging just a shade under 25 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists as he looks to lead the Lakers on another deep playoff run. Last season, he led the Lakers to the Western Conference Finals, where they were swept by the Denver Nuggets (the eventual champions).
