Jack87 news today — asianbookie After a five-game road trip in New Orleans on Saturday night, Lakers forward LeBron James returns to Los Angeles on the verge of becoming the all-time leading scorer in NBA history.
After putting up 27 points in the Lakers’ 131-126 loss to the Pelicans, ‘King James’ now only needs 36 points to pass Lakers great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s career mark Scoring record 38,387 points.
James, 38, is showing no signs of slowing down in his 20th season, averaging more than 30 points per game and earning his 19th All-Star Game.
Next week, when the Lakers host the Thunder on Tuesday and the Bucks on Thursday bk8 , he’ll have two chances to set what he called “one of the greatest records in sports” on his home turf.
Ticket prices for these games have unsurprisingly skyrocketed, and Hollywood’s biggest names are expected to sit courtside.

At this point, the only question is what kind of shot he’ll take to win the title.
James has been seen practicing skyhooks in warmups ahead of recent games, a perfect shot from Abdul-Jabbar, so a tribute to the Hall of Famer may be in the offing.
But a dunk, a mid-range jumper or a three-pointer or even a free throw will stop the game as epic celebrations erupt in the bk8 malaysia Arena.
Breaking the nearly four-decade-old record held by Abdul-Jabbar from Wilt Chamberlain on April 5, 1984, will further propel four-time champion James to be recognized as the greatest of all time players.
The Akron, Ohio native was picked with media frenzy in the 2003 NBA Draft malaysia bk8, where he was selected with the No. 1 pick as a teenager, which had an immediate impact on the struggling Cleveland Cavaliers.
Since then, he has risen steadily up the scoring charts beyond the high expectations placed on him by his broad shoulders.
James has dominated the NBA bk8 asianbookie for two decades, won four championships with three different teams, made a record 19 All-Star games last month and is a perennial MVP candidate.
