LeBron James record tracker: How far is he from Kareem Abdul-Jabbar?


Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James needs 484 points to overtake Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to equal NBA all-time regular-season record (38,387 points). James broke the record for most total points – regular season and playoffs – in February.

With a career pace of 27.1 points per game, James is expected to break the record in the next 18 games. That means injuries barring, he could break the record as early as Feb. 7 when the Lakers take on the Oklahoma City Thunder at Crypto.com Arena.

James, who turned 38 in December, was drafted first overall by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2003 NBA Draft. Since then, he has won four NBA championships, four Finals MVPs, and four league MVPs. He was also named an All-Star 18 times, just one short of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s record 19 All-Star appearances, and was named to the NBA’s 75th Anniversary team in 2022.

James is currently averaging 29 points per game on 51% shots from the field and 30.1% shots from behind the 3-point line, in addition to 8.2 rebounds and 6.6 assists per game.

Here are some notable goalscoring tally from his regular-season career so far:

Career Points: 37,903 (second all-time)

Career high for points in a game: 61 (March 3, 2014)
