Lakers’ LeBron James becomes first NBA player to score 40,000 career points

The King has added another record to his already impressive NBA repertoire.

“I hate it that it had to happen in a defeat, especially versus a team that plays extremely well,” James following the defeat. “We played some good basketball tonight, but weren’t able to close it out.”

Abdul-Jabbar remains second in NBA history with 38,387 career points, while another L.A. icon — the late Kobe Bryant — sits in fourth on the list with 33,463 points.

James passed the 40,000-point mark in his 1,475th career game. For comparison, it took Abdul-Jabbar 1,560 appearances to reach his mark.

James also owns the NBA record for most consecutive games scoring at least 10 points, reaching double-digits in 1,161 straight appearances.

James spoke with the media following the Lakers 134-131 overtime win over the Washington Wizards on Thursday.

James has won four NBA titles, including one with the Lakers in 2020. The future first-ballot Hall of Famer has also won four NBA Finals MVPs, four regular season MVPs, and 13-time All-NBA First Team honors. 슬롯 잭팟 룰렛
