Abdul-Jabbar is the all-time scoring leader with a career total of 38,387 points. James is currently 36,367 points, 3020 points behind. In the past, only two players Wilt Chamberlain and Michael Jordan could score so many points in a season. James alone The season's most points are 2,478 points scored by the Cavaliers in the 2005-06 season.

This means that next season James is unlikely to overtake and become the new historical scoring leader. To achieve this achievement, the 36-year-old James must play at least two more seasons and average no less than 25 points per game.

Although it is a bit difficult, Abdul-Jabbar still looks forward to that day. "I will be very happy to see it happen. I don’t think records are personal achievements, but the achievements of all mankind. If someone can do something that has never been done It means that we all have the potential to do it. When the record is broken, we are all winners. If LeBron breaks my record, I will rush to the sidelines to cheer for him.”
