Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to attend games as LeBron James nears record

LeBron James is poised to become the NBA’s all-time leading scorer later this week and will reportedly get the chance to break the league record in front of a very special guest: current record-holder Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

According to Reuters, Abdul-Jabbar will be in attendance for both Lakers home games this upcoming week: Tuesday against the Thunder and Thursday against the Bucks.

James, who currently sits 62 points behind Abdul-Jabbar’s record ahead of a Saturday road game against the Pelicans, should have clear opportunities to break the all-time mark at both contests later this week in front of home crowds at Arena.

Though James may soon be Abdul-Jabbar’s successor when it comes to holding the NBA scoring crown, the relationship between the two icons has been rather icy in the past. Abdul-Jabbar has been critical of many decisions made by James over the years, including his comment that getting the COVID-19 vaccine was a personal choice.

When James was asked before the season what he thought about passing the Lakers legend on the scoring ladder and about his relationship with Abdul-Jabbar, he offered a blunt reply.
