how close is lebron to kareem. LeBron James played for the Los Angeles Lakers again on Wednesday against the Sacramento Kings after sitting out Monday night’s loss to the Phoenix Suns.
Even though James had a great game (he made 11 of 21 field goal attempts and 9 of 10 free throw attempts for 31 points), it wasn’t enough to prevent the Lakers from suffering their second straight loss (134-120).
Even though all five Lakers starters scored in double figures, they were unable to keep up with the Kings’ starting five, four of whom scored in the 20s, led by Kevin Huerter’s 26.
Domantas Sabonis scored 13 points, but he also pulled down 21 rebounds and dished out 12 assists as the only Sacramento starter in double figures. Two triple-doubles and 22 double-doubles this season put him in first place in the league.
After scoring 31 points on Wednesday, LeBron James moved within 701 points of Kareem Abdul-NBA Jabbar’s record of 38,387, which he had previously held.
On Saturday, February 11, when the Lakers take on the Golden State Warriors in Oakland, California, if LeBron stays healthy and maintains his season scoring average of 27.1 points per game, which happens to be his career scoring average, he will pass Kareem.
Exactly which NBA player scored 25,000 points the quickest?
In his 922nd game, Durant became the seventh-fastest player in NBA history to score 25,000 points. LeBron James (915), Oscar Robertson (917), Jerry West (920), and Wilt Chamberlain (691), Michael Jordan (782), and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (889) were the only players to reach that mark faster.

Has anyone ever scored 69 points in the NBA?
Jordan’s Chicago Bulls played the Cleveland Cavaliers on March 28, 1990, and Jordan took a beating from the Cavs’ defense. His response to the infraction was typical. He had an incredible scoring spree that led to 69 points.
