LeBron James became the NBA's all-time leading scorer on Tuesday, February 7, breaking Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's record of 38,387 points.
James broke the record on a fadeaway jumper in the third quarter of a game against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
He is one of the greatest basketball players in history and one of the world's most recognizable athletes. James has won four NBA titles over his 20-year career, most recently with his current team, the Los Angeles Lakers. He has also won titles with the Miami Heat and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
In addition to being the NBA's all-time scoring king, James is also fourth all-time in assists and ninth in steals.
