Apparently, Kareem Abdul Jabbar's legendary points record may be broken already this coming season by LeBron James, who is 1,326 points away from the goal.
The legendary center of the Los Angeles Lakers scored 38,387 points in his illustrious career, and according to all estimates and if Valbron does not get injured - the ancient record will be broken already during King James' 20th season, all this assuming he continues to put up his career averages.
Believe it or not, LeBron averaged 27 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists during his 19 seasons in the NBA, but according to an investigation by the network researcher BetweenTheBuzzAndMe, the aging star of the league never topped the stat line. This in a single game during his entire career.

According to the same network researcher, this is not a particularly surprising figure in which a player did not put up his career averages in any given game.
According to the same report and after hours of intensive research by the same researcher, it was discovered that LeBron is not alone because Michael Jordan, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Bill Russell and Kobe Bryant also never repeated themselves, and in fact failed to put up the career averages theirs in a single game.

Those who actually succeeded in that complex task were Hakeem Olajuwan (did it 6 times), Kevin Durant and Magic Johnson (21 times), Steph Curry, Will Chamberlain, Shaquille O'Neal, Larry Bird, Tim Duncan and Oscar Robinson (once during their career..).
