‘King’ LeBron James (39, LA Lakers) rose to 4th in the NBA’s all-time assists with his first triple-double this season. James, who is about to break the NBA career record for most points, narrowed the gap with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (76), the record holder in this category, to double digits.
James led the team’s 129-123 victory with a triple-double performance of 28 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists in the 2022-2023 NBA regular league visiting game against New York on the 1st. Points, rebounds and assists were all on the team. “James is doing everything great players do,” Lakers manager Davin Hamm said after the game.
James, who increased his career assists to 10,338, became fourth all-time in the category. It was 6th until the day before, beating Mark Jackson (10,334) and Steve Nash (10,335). The NBA’s all-time assist leader is legendary guard John Stockton (15,806), who played for Utah. James (forward) is the only non-guard among the top five all-time assisters.
James, who raised his career score to 38,299 points that day, approached Abdul-Jabbar’s 38,387 points by 88 points. “I didn’t think about records or how many points I could score while playing basketball,” James said. . 메이저놀이터
This season, James is averaging 30.2 points per game. He will surpass Abdul-Jabbar’s record against Oklahoma City in the 8th if he maintains his scoring average in future games. Prior to this, the Lakers will play Indiana on the 3rd and New Orleans on the 5th.
