Kareem Abdul-Jabbar set a record for scoring that many thought would never be touched because he was so effective playing basketball for so long. Well, eventually that day came and a great basketball player with longevity topped what was considered an unreachable record.
On Feb. 7, 2023, LeBron James came into the game within reach of Abdul-Jabbar’s record. And with 10.9 seconds left, James hit a fadeaway jumper. That shot would give him 38.388 points, propelling him past Abdul-Jabbar on the all-time scoring list. That record for Abdul-Jabbar stood for almost four decades before James passed him.
