NBA-LeBron becomes second player to score 38,000 points
LeBron James became only the second player in NBA history to score 38,000 career points on Sunday as he inches closer to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's all-time record.
James, playing in his 20th NBA season, needed 11 points to reach 38,000 points and hit a mid-range jumper in the first quarter of the Los Angeles Lakers' home game against the Philadelphia 76ers to move past the milestone.
The 38-year-old forward has averaged 29 points per game this season and is on course to break former Lakers center Abdul-Jabbar's record of 38,387 points in the coming weeks.
