LeBron James needs 460 points to pass Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and set the all-time record. However, according to the four-time MVP, he has no intention of owning the record.

“I don’t know. It wasn’t my intention,” the 18-time All-Star told ESPN in an exclusive interview Friday when asked where the all-time record in his career would be.

“It wasn’t like a goal of mine when I came into the league — to make the All-Star Team, to be Rookie of the Year, to be First-Team All-NBA, to be First-Team All-Defense, Sure to win a championship, be the league MVP…”

Referring to some NBA betting sites, LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers have the 13th best odds to win the championship. Check out which sportsbooks are showing better odds for the New Orleans Pelicans and the Phoenix Suns.

“The goal record was never in my head because I’ve always been a pass-first guy,” added LeBron James. “I’ve always loved seeing my teammates succeed… The best teacher in life is experience and I think over the course of my career I’ve just gotten better at every facet of my game. There were times when I didn’t really have a low post game.

“I wasn’t a low post threat. There were times when I wasn’t dangerous from midfield. There were times when I wasn’t an outside threat… I’ve evolved into doing what I want on the floor… I can use my ability to read coverage because I’ve seen it all – my own Advantage, but even more important for the success of my teammates.”

Lakers superstar LeBron James says he has no plans to break NBA all-time scoring record

The Lakers wing currently has 37,928 points. Barring a serious injury, the 20-year veteran could break the all-time record with multiple 40-point games before All-Star Weekend.

Speaking of which, LeBron James and Kevin Durant lead the Western and Eastern conferences in the first round of All-Star fan voting. The All-Star Vote is available until Tuesday, February 16 at 11:59 p.m. ET.

If LeBron James maintains his 29 PPG average this season, he is expected to break 🧐 Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s all-time record in February

While James said he never thought about the record, the Lakers are struggling again this season. Los Angeles is 18-21 and ranked 12th in the Western Conference rankings. Because of this, the 38-year-old has some individual records to think about.

In 30 starts this season, LeBron James is averaging 28.9 points, 8.2 rebounds, 6.7 assists and 1.0 steals per game. He also shoots 51.1% from the ground and 29.9% over the arc. Not to mention James recorded 18 double-doubles.

On December 30, in the Lakers’ 130-121 win over the Atlanta Hawks on James’ 38th birthday, the forward scored a season-high 47 points in 40 minutes. He finished 18 of 27 (66.7%) shooting from the field and made four 3-pointers.
