On Wednesday, during the Los Angeles Lakers’ game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, LeBron James became the NBA’s all-time top scorer.

The 38-year-old player surpassed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar‘s record of 38,387 points with a step-back fadeaway jumper from the foul line, over the Oklahoma City Thunder’s Kenrich Williams, with only 10.9 seconds left in the third quarter.

Despite the fact that Abdul-Jabbar reached his total over 1,560 games, James achieved his record in just over 1,400 appearances. Michael Jordan holds the highest points per game average in NBA history at 30.1, while James stands in fifth place with 27.1, slightly behind another current player, Kevin Durant, who has a 27.3 average.
