Lebron James has been in the NBA since 2003 and is now 38-years-old but is still at the top of his game. Over his past five games he has scored 46 and 48 points in two of those contests. Now, he is just 178 points away from passing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the record of most points ever.
In what was a less-hyped record, Lebron already passed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the most points all time that includes the regular season and the playoffs. This upcoming record is strictly the regular season records for most points all time.
With just 177 points covering the gap between James and Abdul-Jabbar, Lebron would only need to play in six more games at his 30.2 points per game current average to pass him. In his last six games though, James has been averaging well over 30 points per game, so he could easily get it done in just five more games.
Five games from now would match Lebron against the Pacers in Indiana. Six games from now Lebron and the Lakers are set to face the Pelicans in New Orleans.
It is also likely that Lebron and the Lakers decide to rest him a couple games between his record and now. This could line up Lebron to go for the record eight or nine games from now in two games that will be nationally televised. Those two games would be against the Bucks in Los Angeles or in Golden State.
