LeBron James may one day own all of NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s records.
James claimed the league record for most two-pointers in playoff history, a record set by Abdul-Jabbar during his storied career. Earlier this season, James broke the all-time scoring record the retired Lakers center once held.
The Akron native claimed another in the Los Angeles Lakers' 104-101 victory over the Golden State Warriors Monday night. The win gave the Lakers a 3-1 lead over the NBA’s defending champs.
It probably didn’t disappoint James who the record came against, given the battles he’s faced against the Warriors in past playoff games while with the Cavs. He and teammate Anthony Davis have the Lakers on the cusp of eliminating Steph Curry and his team.
