Currently leading the scoring statistics, LeBron James is ecstatic. He currently has 38,390 points, 3 more than Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. The points differential will widen, and LeBron James has a good chance of becoming the first player to reach 40,000 NBA points in a single season.
It’s possible that nobody among the present crop of superstars won’t be able to shatter it once that threshold is passed. Maybe up until the introduction of the 4-point line. Records are designed to be broken, but for anyone to overtake Bron, the rules must be changed.
Even though he only broke the record yesterday, LeBron James still has some catching up to do. The leader of the global summit at the moment is Brazilian great and 30-year pro basketball player Oscar Schmidt. With 1093 points at the Olympics, Schmidt has a total of 49,737 points in his career.
Oscar Schmidt Is a Brazilian Baller Who Sits Atop the Scoring Chart Worldwide
This record is not comparable to Pele’s assertion that he has more goals every time Messi or Ronaldo came close to surpassing it. No, Oscar Schmidt is entitled to certain stakes. He spent his whole career playing outside of the NBA, a decision that was made for him for one specific purpose.
Since NBA players could not represent their nation until 1989, Oscar had to resign from his spot on the Brazil squad. He had already played with them for ten years; he wasn’t going to stop now. It was a no-brainer because he earned less money playing for the New Jersey Net in the NBA than he did in Italy.
Just look at the players for Real Madrid and Barcelona to see that not every great basketball player needs to compete in the NBA. Schmidt, who has played for an incredible 30 years, is without a doubt the king of endurance.

How Much Does Le Bron James Need to Break the All-Time International Scoring Record?
a score of 2715. To match the record that has stood since it was set, Bron must score that exact amount. Here is a quick summary of Duo’s arguments, along with an estimation of when they would succeed.
Total points for clubs: 42,044
7,694 for the Brazilian national team (including the Olympic record of 1,093 points)
Seasonal average: 38,390
Basketball USA: 979
Their worldwide careers could not be more different! Even if there are currently far fewer opportunities to play for national teams than for clubs.
If the Lakers star can continue scoring at his present rate, the record will be broken in two seasons. Given how rapidly two years pass, that isn’t too far off. Although this record won’t be as widely publicized as the one that was just broken, it still deserves to be honored.
