When will LeBron James break the NBA’s career points record?

When LeBron James overtook Karl Malone for second on the NBA regular-season points list, he had his sights firmly set on Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the NBA’s current all-time leading scorer.

James enters the 2022-23 season, his 20th in the NBA, and needs just 1,326 points to surpass Abdul-Jabbar’s career total of 38,387. Given that James has scored at least 1,500 points in 18 of his last 19 seasons, it seems likely that this year he will break the record and end Abdul-Jabbar’s 38-year streak as the NBA’s top scorer.

Abdul-Jabbar has topped the career points list since April 5, 1984 – eight months before James was even born – when he broke the mark previously held by Wilt Chamberlain. Now James has that record within reach and we’ll be keeping you updated on his quest, including updated game-by-game predictions and full stats.


James is now in his 20th season, the same number played by Abdul-Jabbar in his legendary career. And while the legendary Lakers big man had bigger goalscoring early in his career, James’ lengthy heyday (15 straight seasons averaging at least 25 PPG) has allowed him to close the gap.
