How Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is feeling as LeBron James approaches his scoring record with the Lakers

Take a look back at some of the incredible accomplishments Kareem Abdul-Jabbar racked up during his six-year tenure with the Bucks at the beginning of his career as LeBron James prepares to surpass Abdul-NBA Jabbar’s career scoring mark either Tuesday night or Thursday in Los Angeles against the Bucks.
Abdul-Jabbar played for the Bucks, where he won the 1971 NBA title, the Rookie of the Year award, three MVP awards (1971, 1972, and 1974), and 14,211 of his 38,387 career points.
LeBron James, the power forward for the Los Angeles Lakers, will break the all-time scoring mark for the NBA’s regular season at some point during LA’s next two games, assuming he stays healthy tonight and on Thursday. He is presently doubtful to play against the Oklahoma City Thunder tonight due to a painful left ankle. If healthy, LeBron James will face Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday. James previously held the title for around 11 seasons, from 2008 to 2018.
It goes without saying that another Lakers legend, six-time NBA champion Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, holds the record for league scoring. Since 1984, Cap has dominated the league in total points scored during the regular season. By the way, when Abdul-Jabbar initially broke the previous scoring record, center Wilt Chamberlain of the Los Angeles Lakers, he did so ahead of him. Abdul-Jabbar finished his 20-year NBA career with 38,387 total points scored during the regular season. James, who is only 35 points away from breaking his record, is close behind him and closing quickly. Given that he has been averaging 30 points a game this year, I believe he will step up and win tonight at home against a team that is highly beatable.
Although the two all-time greats have occasionally had chilly relations, it’s good to see that Abdul-Jabbar is offering encouragement in this case. Whatever time it occurs, Lakers supporters will consider it a special event.
