‘King’ LeBron James (39, LA Lakers) received the ball from teammate Russell Westbrook (35) with 18.2 seconds left at the end of the third quarter. Kenrich Williams (29, Oklahoma City) blocked James, who was looking at the court while stepping on the right side of the free throw line. After pushing Williams away with three pumping moves, James momentarily changed direction and jumped backwards to fire the shot. With 10.9 seconds left at the end of the third quarter, James became the player with the most points in NBA history.
Prior to the start of this game held at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles (LA) on the 8th, James had scored 38,352 points in his career. It was 35 points away from the 38,387 points of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (76), who was the NBA’s all-time leading scorer. The prevailing view was that James, who averaged 30 points per game this season, would need one more game to surpass Abdul-Jabbar. However, James, who had already succeeded in passing Abdul-Jabbar in the 3rd quarter, made a layup even 1 minute and 51 seconds before the end of the 4th quarter, increasing his personal career points to 38,390. James sets the NBA record for most points each time he scores. 스포츠토토
The NBA Secretariat held a commemorative ceremony by stopping the game immediately after James achieved the record. Abdul-Jabbar, who had held this position for 39 years after becoming the all-time leading scorer in 1984, also attended the ceremony and congratulated James by giving him the match ball. After asking the full crowd (18,997) who filled the stadium that day, “Give a standing ovation to ‘Captain’ (Abdul-Jabbar),” James said, “I wouldn’t be where I am today without all of you who have helped me for over 20 years. . Everyone’s passion and sacrifice helped me get this far. Thank you very much,” he said.
In his NBA debut on October 30, 2003, in an away game in Sacramento, James scored his first goal with a mid-range jump shot from the right side of the goal 3:33 in the first quarter. He scored an average of 20.9 points in the first year of his debut and received the rookie award. In this season, his 20th in the NBA, he is showing off his strength by averaging 30 points per game. This is currently 7th in the league. Abdul-Jabbar also averaged only 23.4 points in the 1985-1986 season when James was 39 years old, and even Michael Jordan (60), the ‘Basketball Emperor’, averaged 30 points after the 1995-1996 season (average 30.4 points) when he was 33 years old. never missed a point
James, who said, “It is my dream to play together in the NBA with my eldest son, Broney (19),” whenever there is a chance, is now running towards the first 40,000 points in NBA history. Dennis Schroeder (30), James’ German teammate, said in a recent interview with the local media, “James said he wants to play for another five to seven years.” When this interview became a hot topic, James expressed confidence, saying, “I’m not thinking of exact numbers,” but “but I know that once I set my mind to it, I can keep my body capable of playing at this level of performance.” A golden brooch with “Stay Present” written on his left chest was shining brightly on his left chest as he “went to work” in an all-black suit ahead of his achievement.
