LeBron James, on the cusp of NBA scorers

This week, the star LeBron James became the top scorer in NBA history, reaching 38,890 points in the duel lost by the Lakers against the Thunder 130-133. He left behind the legendary Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who came in at 38,387.

The record was held by the center for 39 years, until it passed into the hands of the boy from Akron.

“I have sacrificed a lot,” LeBron James said in a conversation with another Lakers legend, James Worthy, now a basketball commentator. “It takes a lot of dedication, a lot of things you want to do that you can’t do because you want to be the best you can be. You want to be the best.”
