On Tuesday, February 7, 2023 at Crypto.com Arena, LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers (25-29) are 6.5-point favourites over Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and the Oklahoma City Thunder (25-28). The Warriors defeated Oklahoma City’s in their most recent match, 141-114, on Monday. The team’s leading scorer with 20 points was Gilgeous-Alexander.

LeBron James, the star of the Lakers, is a few points away from surpassing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as the all-time best scorer in league history, and thus today could go down in NBA history.

“I’ve been carrying the torch as record holder for 38 years,” Abdul-Jabbar told CNN’s Don Lemon in late January. “I’m excited and relieved to pass it along to the next worthy recipient. LeBron earned it, and I hope he carries it even longer than I did.”

The NBA will soon have a new all-time leading scorer. MMoreover, it would be a memorable occasion if the baton was passed with Abdul-Jabbar present in the audience in Los Angeles, where both him and James have competed for the Lakers.
