Lakers superstar LeBron James entered Tuesday night’s matchup against the Oklahoma City Thunder just 36 points shy of passing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the top spot on the NBA’s all-time scoring list.
James racked up 12 points in the second quarter to inch closer to Kareem’s record. All eyes are on him as he could fill up the gap in the second half.
LeBron James is widely considered to be one of the greatest players in history and is often compared to Michael Jordan in debates over the greatest basketball player of all time.
James married his high school sweetheart Savannah James on September 14, 2013, in San Diego, California. They have three children: two sons—Bronny and Bryce—and daughter Zhuri.

In 2019, Bronny led his high school, Sierra Canyon School, to a win against his dad’s alma mater, St. Vincent-St. Mary High School, in a spirited game played in LeBron’s hometown of Akron, Ohio. In July 2021, he made it to the cover of Sports Illustrated at the age of 16.
In February 2022, LeBron told The Athletic that he plans to spend his final year in the NBA with his oldest son. He said, “My last year will be played with my son. Wherever Bronny is at, that’s where I’ll be.”

Bryce, who graduated from middle school in 2021, plays basketball just like his father and older brother.
