Shaquille O’Neal: “If LeBron Beats Kareem’s Record, We Should All Shut Up”
Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James wants to be known as the greatest of all time as he wraps up his career. Shaquille O’Neal, one of the legendary players of the NBA, talked about what LeBron needs to do to be remembered as the best.
Legendary players like Michael Jordan and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar have the upper hand in some areas over the Los Angeles Lakers superstar. LeBron James, in turn, plans to surpass these legends as he ends his career.
“I don’t like having this conversation because I know all these guys,” Shaq said in a statement. I think LeBron’s plan is to beat Kareem. Because if he breaks his scoring record, we should all shut up.”
Shaq got a chance to play with LeBron when he was traded from the Suns to the Cavs in 2009, but things didn’t work out. Shaq said, “He’s a great player, a great friend. And when I heard I was being traded, my wish was to go out with the King.”
O’Neal also noted that LeBron could break Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s scoring record at the end of his career, and if that happens, there’s nothing to be said to deny that King James is the greatest player of all time.
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is the highest scorer in NBA history with 38,387 points throughout his career. LeBron James, who has 4 championships in his NBA career, has recorded 35,367 points so far.
