LeBron James’ Quest to Break All-Time Scoring Record Fuels $133,000 Ticket Prices

LeBron James is on the brink of reaching new heights and cementing his place in the annals of basketball history. This coming Tuesday (Wednesday in Australia), James and his Los Angeles Lakers will take on the Oklahoma City Thunder at Crypto.com Arena, and fans are buzzing with excitement at the prospect of witnessing a potential record-breaking performance. And according to recent reports, they are willing to fork out the big, big bucks to see it live.

The current record for the highest number of points scored in a career is held by the legendary player Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who accumulated 38,387 points over his 20-year stint with the Lakers and Milwaukee Bucks. Sitting 36 points away from becoming the new all-time leading scorer in the NBA, LeBron’s recent form, averaging 33 points per game over his last 14 games, has only fueled the anticipation for what promises to be a historic night. The high demand for tickets has caused prices to skyrocket, with some even being sold for an astonishing USD$92,000 (AU$133,000), as reported by Beacher Report.

Yes, you read that right, USD$92,000! People are willing to pay top dollar to be a part of this moment in history. However, while the stadium promises to be a site for epic scenes, we’ve run the numbers and decided to watch it for free on the couch. But hey, maybe you’re a baller (pun intended), and a $100k basketball ticket wouldn’t make a dent. Good for you…

In a recent post-game interview, LeBron humbly admitted that he never thought he could reach Abdul-Jabbar’s record-setting tally, but here we are, with the world on the edge of its seats, waiting to see if the King can claim the throne. If the 38-year-old veteran can’t get it done against the Thunder, he’ll have a second chance just a few days later when the Lakers host the Bucks on Thursday.

With Kareem playing for both the Bucks and the Lakers, perhaps he’ll wait until later in the week to claim the title. Regardless, we’ll be fixated on our screens all week to witness the historic sporting event.
