James is just 36 points away from passing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as the all-time leader in league history.
He has a very good chance of scoring those 36 goals in Tuesday night’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder in Los Angeles.
Crypto.com Arena is already completely sold out for the game, with some people paying thousands of dollars for a chance to see history made.
James is averaging 30 points per night, so hitting 36 is possible, although perhaps a bit unlikely.
However, James knows how close he is to achieving such a huge feat and perhaps it will inspire him to score what is needed and earn his place in the history books.
For the last three games, James has scored 27, 26 and 28 points respectively.
But the previous three games featured two nights where James scored over 40 points, so 36 on Tuesday night is definitely within reach.
James passing Abdul-Jabbar is something people have been anticipating for months, if not years.
This cements his place as one of the most influential and important people to ever play in the NBA.
It also comes at a time when his team is once again grappling with a way forward.
Will they make any major changes before Thursday’s trade deadline or will they look a lot the same for the rest of the season?
All of that will be decided in the coming days, but Tuesday night (or Thursday if necessary) will be all about James and his historic moment.
