Both players are poster boys for longevity. Abdul-Jabbar left the game when he was 42 years old. James is currently 37. With a few more years in the game, and the incredible shape he is in, James can set a new all-points record. Abdul-Jabbar retired with a colossal score of 38,387, while ‘King’ James is currently at 37,144.
Entering his 20th season in the NBA, James just might re-write history. Moreover, the Lakers star is also on the verge of breaking another legend, Magic Johnson’s record. James is just 97 assists behind Johnson from overtaking him in the all-time assists list as well.
