‘King’ LeBron James (39, LA Lakers) finally became the protagonist with the most points in NBA history.
James achieved a record in the third quarter of the home game against the Oklahoma City Thunder in the 2022-23 NBA regular season held at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, USA on the 8th (Korean time).
James, who had 36 points left until the game before the game, ‘Legend’ Karim Abdul-Jabbar’s career high score (38,387 points), scored 20 points in the first half alone, raising the possibility of breaking the record.
James, who continued to score explosively in the third quarter, finally stood tall as the protagonist of the record when his fadeaway shot passed the rim with 10.9 seconds left at the end of the third quarter.
Fans gathered at the scene all stood up and applauded the moment a new history was written, and many celebrities also congratulated James on his record. Abdul-Jabbar, who had been silently watching the game with a firm expression, smiled at James, who broke his own record after 34 years, handing over the title for the most goals scored in his career. 바카라

After the record was achieved, the game was temporarily suspended and a commemorative event was held. Abdul-Jabbar himself came out on the court and handed James a basketball and hugged him, and NBA President Adam Silver personally certified James’ record achievement. James’ eyes were moistened, and tears finally poured out.
Selected by the Cleveland Cavaliers with the first pick in the 2003 NBA Draft, James made his debut in the 2003-04 season and has consistently played for 20 seasons.
From 4 NBA Finals championships to 19 consecutive All-Star selections, 18 consecutive ALL-NBA team selections, and 4 MVPs, he has poured out countless records.
After playing 11 seasons in Cleveland and 4 seasons in Miami Heat, James is in his 5th season with the Lakers, scoring 23,119 points in Cleveland, 7919 points in Miami and 7314 points in 7 days for the Lakers.
