Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron Jameswill seek on Tuesday night to become the leading scorer in NBA history, when they face the Oklahoma City Thunder at home.
To surpass the mark set by the legendary Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Of 38,387 goals scored in his illustrious career, James should get 36 points. Something quite possible since at 38 he averages 30 per game.

LeBron is playing his twentieth season in the NBA, averaging 27.2 points over 1,408 regular-season games.
For his part, Abdul-Jabbar also needed 20 years of professionalism (1969-1989), and established a mark that until now seemed impossible to beat in 1,560 games played in which he averaged 24.6 points.
If it is not Tuesday, the next opportunity will be when next Thursday they face the Milwaukee Bucks again at home.
