We are nearing the All-Star Break in the NBA and LeBron James and James Harden are putting up insane numbers. As the two are getting ready to face off against each other on January 18 in the return of NBA Saturday Primetime on ABC.
LeBron James (33,513) is only 131 points away from passing Kobe Bryant (33,643) for the third-most points in NBA history. King James is currently on pace to average at least 25 points per game for his 16th consecutive season, a journey that seemingly will bring him to the top of the list right now. He is just 4,875 points away from passing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for most in NBA history.
Harden is averaging nearly 38 points per game and seems to be well on his way to his third consecutive NBA scoring title. He has played in 95% of the game possible since joining the NBA and has scored 2,000 points in 6 of the last 7 seasons.
The Houston Rockets and the Los Angeles Lakers square off at 8:30 ET. Who do you think will come out on top?
