38,388 points… ‘Scoring King’ LeBron surpasses ‘Sky Hook’ Abdul-Jabbar
On the 8th (Korean time), the National Basketball Association (NBA) Oklahoma City Thunder match was held at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, USA. With 10.9 seconds left in the third quarter, LA Lakers’ LeBron James (39, USA) fired a fadeaway shot after a post-up. As the ball cleared the rim, James raised his arms across the court.
38,388 points. It was the moment when James broke the NBA career record for most points (38,387) held by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (76). Abdul-Jabbar, who previously broke Wilt Chamberlain’s record for most points with his signature “sky hook” in 1984, saw his record broken in 39 years from the crowd.
The match was temporarily suspended to commemorate his great record. Abdul-Jabbar came to the center of the court and handed James a commemorative basketball. James wiped away the tears with his hand.
James needed 36 points to break the record. James, who is recording an average of 30 points this season, seemed to be able to renew it only in the match against the Milwaukee Bucks on the 10th. However, James showed his strong will by warming up with headphones with ‘38388’ engraved on them.
James, who was hit in the face in the first quarter and collapsed on the court, scored 8 points with Eurostep’s Andone play. He drove in 20 points going into the second quarter. He set a record for consecutive three-pointers in the third quarter. James
said, “Thanks to everyone who ran with me for 20 years.” Celebrities such as best friend Dwyane Wade, actor Denzel Washington, and rapper Jay-Z visited the stadium. Rapper Drake sent me a video message. NBA Instagram praised James’ nicknames ‘King’ and ‘Scorpion King’ as ’20 seasons, 1410 games, 38388 points, Scoring King’.
James, who debuted in the NBA in 2003, achieved several first records, such as ‘more than 40 points against all clubs’ and ‘30,000 points – 10,000 rebounds – 10,000 assists’. Even though the team lost that day, James added 38 points and his total score was 38,390. Although he is ahead of the bullshit, it seems possible to break the score by 40,000 points with 1610 remaining points because he is in a good mood for the next 2-3 seasons. 카지노
James’ final goal is to play for the same team as his son, Bronie James (19), during his last season in the NBA. Broney, who is playing as a shooting guard at Sierra Canyon High School in California, USA, was recently selected as a ‘McDonald’s All-American Game Member (All-American High School Senior All-Star)’. Broney, who watched his father’s record on the field that day, is expected to challenge for the NBA rookie draft next year or the year after that. James, who signed a two-year extension with the LA Lakers in August last year until the 2024-25 season, said earlier, “My last season will be with his son. Wherever Bronie is, I will be there, and when that happens, money won’t matter.”
