LeBron James has never been recognized as a scorer. Throughout his whole career, he has been a playmaker, helping players to score. But somehow, in his 20th season, he is about to break the all-time scoring record. A record that has been for over 30 years since Kareem retired. Yet, he is just a little over 1,300 points short of the no. 1 spot as the league’s leading scorer. With his career average of points scored, he might break the record before the 50-game mark.

As mentioned before, longevity has been part of the reason why LeBron James is right on the brink of breaking the record. Still, LeBron hasn't been only focused on scoring points, he has also been dominant on rebounds and assists. In fact, he is the only player in NBA history with at least 30,000 points, 10,000 rebounds and 10,000 assists. Don't be surprised if LeBron James ends up leading the lead in every major category once he retires.

Will LeBron James celebrate this season?

There's a tale of two tails with LeBron James in the upcoming season. On one hand, there's a story of him breaking the all-time scoring record, which is almost a guarantee. But on the other hand, there's the story of the Lakers roster. Right now, they are projected to get to the playoffs, but they also miss the postseason for the second year in a season.
