HOW SIGNIFICANT IS LEBRON JAMES BREAKING NBA SCORING RECORD?

+

LeBron James is likely to make even more history in his 20th season. The Los Angeles Lakers superstar is just 1,325 points behind Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the NBA's all-time scoring record, a total James has reached in all but one season. As his 20th campaign is set to begin, James remarked at Lakers media day how he's "in awe" of the fact that he's so close to breaking a record that's stood for nearly four decades. "To sit here and to know that I’m on the verge of breaking probably the most sought-after record in the NBA, something that people said would probably never be done, it’s just super humbling for myself," James said. "I think it’s super cool."
