LeBron James Breaks the Scoring Record
From elementary school to high school to university to now starting my full time job. Lots has changed for me over the past two decades, but one thing has stayed the same, LeBron James’ dominance in the NBA.
On Tuesday, I witnessed LeBron break the scoring record. A record that stood for 38 years. A record as old as LeBron himself.
Kareem Abdul Jabbar, the previous holder of the record, reflects on LeBron breaking his record. He writes,
Whenever a sports record is broken—including mine—it’s a time for celebration. It means someone has pushed the boundaries of what we thought was possible to a whole new level. And when one person climbs higher than the last person, we all feel like we are capable of being more.
LeBron is the athlete of my generation. He’s inspired me and many of my friends throughout his incredible career. And while it’s only a matter of time before his prime and his career ends, I’ll enjoy his reign while it lasts.
