NBA Players React To LeBron James Becoming The NBA’s All-Time Scoring Leader
LeBron James has broken the NBA’s all-time scoring record, that Hall of Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar had been holding since 1984.
In the third quarter against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday, LeBron went for a tough fadeaway shot that went in – good for career points 38,387 and 38,388.

Wow, never in my lifetime did I think I would see two NBA athletes score over 38,000 points! I still remember when my Showtime teammate, the legendary Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, broke the record. It was an honor to be the guy to pass it to him and cement his legacy!
