Los Angeles Lakers’ superstar LeBron James achieved a historic milestone, becoming the first NBA player to reach 39,000 points. The record was broken in the win against the Jazz.

The four-time NBA champion widened the gap from second-place Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on the all-time scoring list.

Taking to Instagram, LeBron confidently declared, “Top 2 and I’m not 2. 1 of 1!” alongside a photo commemorating his 39,000 career points, solidifying his claim to the GOAT status.

Amidst the ongoing GOAT debate comparing James to Michael Jordan, it’s noteworthy that MJ has consistently refrained from proclaiming himself as the greatest.

LeBron’s bold proclamation adds fuel to the enduring discussion about who truly holds the title of the greatest basketball player of all time.
