LeBron James is one of the greatest players of all time, and there are certainly many people who believe he is the greatest player of his generation. Even though this is his 19th season, LeBron James is still playing at a high level. Currently, LeBron James is averaging 29.7 PPG, 8.1 RPG, and 6.2 APG, while shooting 35.6 percent from beyond the arc.

There’s no doubt that LeBron James is traditionally seen as a playmaker rather than a scorer, even though he’s a fantastic scorer in his own right. LeBron James has even opened up about how not being considered a top scorer has bothered him in the past.

“The crazy thing is I’m not like a natural scorer,” James said. “I love involving my guys, I’ve always been like that. The interest of seeing my teammate pass my pass. I’ve always been that kind of guy. And sitting at the top of the food chain with the most points scored in the history of the game feels like weird to me. When they talk about the all-time top scorers, they never mention my name. It annoys me. They never put my name there.

One of the records that LeBron James could potentially break by the end of his career is the all-time record, currently held by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Against the Wizards, LeBron James took a big step towards achieving that goal, becoming the second all-time goal scorer after a layup made.

Video has circulated of LeBron James receiving a standing ovation from the Washington DC crowd after dropping to 2nd place in the all-time leading scorers chart. It’s clear there’s a lot of respect for what LeBron James has been able to accomplish, even from local fans.

LeBron James is still a top superstar, even though he hasn’t had much team success with the Los Angeles Lakers this season. Clearly his scoring has been a necessity for the Lakers this season.

Hopefully, we’ll see LeBron James find a way to make the Lakers more competitive during the playoffs. It is almost certain that the Los Angeles Lakers will be a level of play at the end of the season, the question is what level of play seed will they be. That being said, it’s possible the Los Angeles Lakers will make the playoffs this way, and a team led by LeBron James shouldn’t be counted out.
