LeBron James Sets Another NBA Record vs Nets

LeBron Had His 672nd 30-Point Game, Beating Michael Jordan’s Record

GOAT?

When it’s all said and done, LeBron James’ name is going to be all over the NBA record books. As many already know, he’s the NBA’s all-time leading scorer but there are still records for him to break. The latest LeBron James stats to set a record involves 30-point games.

Against the Brooklyn Nets last night, LeBron made NBA news by scoring at least 30 points for the 672nd time.

Michael Jordan was the previous record holder with 671. LeBron has never been talked about as one of the great scorers but he’s racking up a lot of records when it comes to scoring.

 

LeBron James Strengthening GOAT Argument

Michael Jordan didn’t play long enough to solidify a ton of records. His 671 30-point games may have been the most impressive Michael Jordan stats outside of his six NBA championships. While there are many who will never acknowledge anybody other than Jordan as the greatest basketball player of all time, LeBron continues to strengthen his claim.

He is the all-time leading scorer in the NBA, has scored 20 points in more NBA games than any player, and has now scored 30 or more points in a game than anybody else. However, the ride could be ending soon. After the win over the Nets, LeBron acknowledged that his career might be ending soon.

“Not very long,” LeBron said. “Not very long. I’m on the other side, obviously, of the hill. I’m not gonna play another 21 years, that’s for damn sure. But not very long. I don’t know when that door will close as far as when I’ll retire. But I don’t have much time left.”

LeBron is still playing at a very high level and could likely be an effective NBA player for another five years. However, preparing for a basketball season and playing through one is a lot of work. He could be wanting to relax a bit and finally enjoy the fruits of his labor.
