LeBron James Breaks NBA Scoring Record

Los Angeles Lakers’ star player, LeBron James made history yesterday. The historic moment came when he gained 38 points during a 133-130 loss by the Oklahoma City Thunder, and surpassed the previous NBA record score of 38,387, set by Abdul Jabbar back in 1989. It is a record that has stood for the past 34 years, and yesterday, LeBron James overcame that record, creating a new champion score to beat, and thus setting the bar even higher. Abdul-Jabbar first broke the previous record in 1984, just 8 months before his eventual score-topping successor was even born!
