If I had to take a wild guess, around 38-40,000. I think he could break Jabbar's record.

Honestly and this is no knock on this Kid because he has all the tools.

He needs to develop more to his game because once his Athletic/strenght ability starts too wear down I think his game will as well. If he devolpes his game and polishes his footwork I see easily over 35,000.

Lebron's frame will eventually lead to frequent injuries once he gets into his 30's. Once he has to adapt his game his points will decline.

He's got a very good chance at surpassing Kareem.

If he averages 28 ppg over the next 10 years (more than possible, considering he'll probably have a few more 30+ ppg seasons between now and when he starts to decline), he'll have 37,960 and he'll be 35 then.

I don't think there's any question that he has a great chance of being the NBA's leading all time scorer. I think the main question is regarding his transition from powerful, all dominating freight train to a guy that may not be able to rely as much on his athleticism when he gets the wrong side of 30.

Then again this is the first time we have witnessed a guy as physically gifted as LeBron in the league. The guy has possibly the best conditioning I have ever seen in a professional athlete, so we will have to wait and see how his body adjusts to all the wear and tear.

I personally think he'll pass Kareem and finish close to, or possibly above the 40,000 mark... Which is unbelievable.

One things for sure... He is the last guy in my opinion who has a shot at Kareem's record. With the high school rule coming into affect a few years ago and the fact that the league is so physically demanding nowadays, meaning we'll see less and less players playing into their late 30's/early 40's, it's almost impossible to play long enough to put up those sort of numbers.

i don't know what you're talking about. he's well built and strong. you make him sound like anthony randolph or devin harris.

He has what it takes to score as much as Kareem. However, injuries are always a question because he is bound to get a major injury (out for half the season maybe) at least once in his career. When that happens, if it does, he will be forced to change his playing style (look at Kobe, Vince for example). I hope nothing bad happens to Lebron because he is just an amazing player but I'm just throwing out a frequent story for physically gifted maniacs who started their careers being highlight reels, dunking everywhere, and ended up with one or two knee surgeries.

i think b/c of how UNSELFISH lebron is, he will NOT break the record. i think durant who is more of a good scorer than a good player, may be able to do it, but lebron is way too unselfish and will probably not beat it if he ends up on good teams, but if he ends up on a bad team for the rest of his career, one that he will have to carry (highly unlikely) then he will crush the record.

If Lebron feels like playing into his late 30's, he has a very good chance of breaking the record.

good point i didnt even think of that...ask vince carter being so explosive earlier in ur career brings some wear and tear then u have to actually learn to be a good shooter..thas the reason why carter is still productive in the league...

and thas the reason kobe is the best in the world cuz hes not as athletic or explosive but he has other ways to win ..he relies on pure skill

Iunno but I think Durant beats that.

Durant is a scoring machine. I think he will be averaging 30 PPG at least 4 times in his career.

Bron is impervious to injury, built like a tank and skilled enough not to completely rely on brute strength. He will play forever

He has a great chance to break the record, but it depends on how long he plays.

I don't think he'll do it. He is way too unselfish, especially compared to the guys at the top. He doesn't need to score 30 every night for his team to win.

I agree, if I were a Cavs fan I would wish that he were more selfish.
