“Abdul-Jabbar’s record? Just a matter of time”
LeBron James is 89 points away from becoming the NBA’s all-time leading scorer. The Los Angeles Lakers star doesn’t feel any pressure.
It has never been so close. LeBron James still needs to score a total of 89 points to become the new all-time leading scorer in NBA history. Currently, this famous record is the property of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. On this subject, after the victory of his franchise of the Los Angeles Lakers on the floor of the New York Knicks, at the end of the extension (123-129), James, who registered, at the occasion of this meeting, his first triple-double of the season, thus notably declared, in remarks reported by theAFP : “ The context is not heavier to bear, because I will. I mean, it’s just a matter of time. I’m not going anywhere, I’m going to play in this league for a few more years, so I’m going to do it. While waiting for this great moment, the basketball star took advantage of this last NBA meeting to become the fourth best passer in the history of the prestigious League, ahead of Steve Nash.
“Not arrived at this stage of my career thinking about records”
However, regarding this famous points record, which he is very close to, LeBron James assured him, he does not think about it when he is on the floor: “I have not arrived at this stage of my career in thinking about records or how many points I could score. I just play the right way. I go into the game every night trying to be a triple threat: scoring, rebounding, passing, not forgetting to defend. So, let things happen as they should. I think when I’m very close to the goal, it can interfere in my mind, but I don’t put that kind of pressure on myself. I just play. This real feat could quickly take place. And maybe even next February 7, at home, against the Oklahoma City Thunder franchise, in three games. Even for the next one, that of 9, still in the lair of the Lakers, this time against Milwaukee. This season, LeBron James is averaging 30.2 points per game.
