In his illustrious 18-year NBA career, LeBron James has broken several NBA records. He is, however, on pace to surpass six-time NBA champion Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s points record. Throughout his career, King James has accumulated 35,367 points. He is only 3,020 points behind NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal, who has 38,387. It’ll only be a matter of time before he breaks Karl Malone’s record of 36,928 points and moves into second place. However, LeBron’s goal is to break Kareem’s record before he retires, and if everything goes according to plan and he stays healthy, no one will be able to stop him. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar expressed his feelings about how he would feel if LeBron James broke the record in an interview with NBA reporter Marc Stein. In addition, the two-time Finals MVP shared his thoughts on the GOAT debate between LeBron James and Michael Jordan. Kareem said during the interview:

“I’m excited to see it happen. I don’t see records as personal accomplishments, but more as human achievements. If one person can do something that’s never been done, that means we all have a shot at doing it. It’s a source of hope and inspiration.” He further added, “We all win when a record is broken and if LeBron breaks mine, I will be right there to cheer him on.”

Kareem is a champion in his own right, and he is widely regarded as one of the best center’s to ever play in the league. During his time with the Los Angeles Lakers, he led the Milwaukee Bucks to their first-ever NBA championship and built a formidable team. Because of his sheer brilliance, he was also a part of several GOAT discussions in the 1980s. The 74-year-old was a member of a Lakers team that included Magic Johnson, but his impact on the game will live on. To this day, his famous skyhook shot is one of the most difficult yet elegant moves in basketball. Many people dream of perfecting it, but no one will ever be able to do it better than the one and only Kareem. Kareem said this about how he perfected the skyhook:

“I just kept practicing it until I could hook with the left or right hand as well as with a higher arc and from farther away. I was also pretty good at the slam dunk, but what I like about the skyhook is the grace and athleticism of it as opposed to the sheer power of the stuff.”

“The question can never be answered because players from the past were trained under different restrictions and played under different rules in the NBA. Then you have to ask what to give more weight to: Scoring, defense, assists? All of them? But the stats don’t always reveal the particular conditions and challenges of each season. Way too many variables. How about we just discuss the O’GOAT (One of the Greatest of All-Time)?”
