The Los Angeles Lakers star, LeBron James, has added yet another fantastic record to his resume. Thus, he cements his status as one of the greatest basketball players of all time.

The reign continues, and now it extends beyond the NBA. On Tuesday, in the Los Angeles Lakers’ 128-111 away victory against the Toronto Raptors, LeBron James broke Oscar Schmidt’s record and became the highest scorer in the history of basketball worldwide.

The top scorer of the North American league, the LA franchise’s forward, has expanded his collection of records by surpassing the 49,737 points previously held by the Brazilian, according to ESPN.

Two days after breaking his own record in three-point shots, with nine baskets out of ten attempts against the Brooklyn Nets, ‘The King’ shone once again, this time in Canada.

With a celebration by the Raptors fans for his presence in Toronto, LeBron led the LA team’s away victory, scoring 23 points, grabbing four rebounds, and dishing out nine assists.

The first player in history to surpass the 40,000-point mark in the world’s best basketball, LeBron averages 25.4 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 8.1 assists.

At 39 years old, the four-time league champion remains the Lakers’ main hope for a path back to the top of basketball’s elite this season.
