LeBron James has proven himself to be the goat of basketball again! Last night the Akron, Ohio native broke the record for leading score in the NBA! The title was held by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. According to reports he didn’t need a whole game to do so! LeBron was only 36 points away.
James sank a 21-foot turnaround with 10.9 seconds left in the third quarter at Crypto.com Arena, giving him 16 points in the period, the necessary 36 for the game and 38,388 for his illustrious career — now more than any other player in NBA history. (NBA)
The highest scoring player in the NBA is from Akron, Ohio! That’s not only amazing but inspirational. We love LeBron and we appreciate all he does for our city. It’s a honor to be able to say that! To see someone from your hometown become the BEST shows that anything is possible! You can really be successful and make it out of here. Congratulations LBJ.
LeBron did give a speech after making the record breaking shot:
LeBron: “To be in the presence of such a legend and great as Kareem, it means so much to me. It’s very humbling,” James said as the game was stopped for a brief ceremony at center court. “To everybody who’s ever been a part of this run with me the last 20 years, I just want to say thank you so much.
“To the NBA … I thank you guys so much for letting me be part of something I’ve always dreamed about. I would never, ever in a million years dreamed it’s better than what it is tonight.” ( King James)
Congratulations! As always Akron stands with you! The goat of basketball. Men lie, women lie but numbers don’t lie!
