LeBron James

LeBron James recently became the NBA’s all-time leading scorer, passing the legendary Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in a game against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

LeBron James remains one of the most dominant basketball players of all time, arguably the “GOAT.” In the past two decades, the forward has added many stars to his name. But the most prominent one came during the current NBA season. James stayed poised to surpass Kareem Abdul Jabbar in the all-time leading scorer tally. However, a few injuries led to a loss of significant game time.


Regardless, the much-awaited moment arrived on February 7, 2023, when the Los Angeles Lakers faced the Oklahoma City Thunder. During the third quarter, LeBron James hit the ultimate dunk and became the leading point scorer in NBA. The captain, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, who was in attendance, facilitated James and handed over the torch. Meanwhile, a couple of podcasters have come up with a wild theory that certainly grabbed many eyeballs.

When LeBron James was crowned the all-time leading point scorer of the NBA, the entire sports fraternity was on its feet. Big names around the world congratulated James and applauded his two decades of hard work and dedication to the sport. However, a couple of podcasters have some wild theories that explain LeBron James’ quirky association with the number 38. He started by saying that LeBron broke the record that Kareem held for 38 long years at the age of 38. Further, he stated that James ended that game with 38 points to his individual tally.

Not only that, the podcasters observed that the day he broke the record, February 7, 2023, happens to be the 38th day of the year. It’s not over yet. The speaker went on to say that his overall points tally of LeBron at the time he recorded the podcast was 38,388. He saved the best for the last. Apparently, Kareem Abdul Jabbar created the record on April 5, 1984, and just 38th weeks later, LeBron James was born. While this numerology theory may seem far-fetched, it is interesting to consider the various factors that came together on that day.

LeBron James is often criticized as the “first pass guy” who doesn’t have any signature shot, such as the likes of Kareeb Abdul Jabbar, Kobe Bryant, and Michael Jordan. Even James, on multiple occasions, has faced such questions and tackled them by saying that he is a team man and wants to contribute, even if that requires him to be a passing guy.

For what it’s worth, a guy like LeBron James really doesn’t need to answer anyone. Ultimately he shut everyone by becoming the leading point scorer of the NBA, as a player with no signature shot. His legacy will live for generations to come. Whether you like him or not, the fact remains that James remains one of the most successful athletes to ever exist.
