After hitting a third-quarter 3-pointer, Lebron James set a new record. James has officially scored more points all-time in the regular season and playoffs than any other player. This record is however not upto the goals scored by former basket ball star Kareem.
He passes fellow Laker Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the record. However, the National Basketball Assn. considers the all-time scoring record to be regular season only. Thus, Abdul-Jabbar is still No. 1 in the books as the official scoring champion.
LeBron now has 44,152 points, three more than Abdul-Jabbar’s regular and postseason total, and he did that in 181 fewer games.
However, at his current pace, LeBron should pass him for regular season honors either late next season or in the first part of the 2023-24 season.
