LeBron James Believes He Might Pass Kareem Abdul-Jabbar On All-Time Scoring List

 

Year 17 and he’s still ruling the league.

LeBron James has been on an absolute tear to start the 2019-2020 season and looks like he still is in his absolute prime, even though he’s 35-years old.

After suffering a more serious injury for the first time in his career, last season, leading to him missing the playoffs, one could have seen a redemption year coming. Even LeBron himself predicted this to happen.

And with no real idea of when or if LeBron’s prime will be starting to fade, the man himself seems to be more confident in his abilities, than ever.

Just recently, James had his 9000th career assist, becoming the only player in NBA history with at least 30,000 points, 9,000 rebounds and 9,000 assists.

He’s 9th on the NBA’s All-Time Assist List, and 4th on the All-Time Scoring List with 33,347 career points, and Kobe Bryant in sight for 3rd all-time.

For the first time, LeBron now even said that he believes to have a shot at surpassing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s all-time record 38,387 points.

Per AP News:

 

“I would be lying if I said I don’t see it. Obviously I’m not trying to say, ‘OK, well if I play this amount of time, if I average this’ … I’m not doing that because I’ve never done that with my career. I’ve always just kind of let it happen. Whatever happens, happens. But I see it. I do see it.”
