LeBron James Points Tracker: 38,299 of 38,387

Updated through January 25th

There are a lot of superstars in NBA history. And many of them feature iconic moments like Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-point game and Michael Jordan’s 41-point NBA finals average in 1993. But the all-time points leader has a special place in fan’s hearts because it requires both great play and longevity.

That’s certainly the case with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who played for 20 seasons for a total of 38,387 points and a 24.6-point regular season scoring average. But LeBron James is now right on his heels.

Also in his 20th season, James has 38,164 points after a 37-point game against the Portland Trail Blazers. That’s just 223 points away. And with LeBron averaging almost 30 points per game this season, he should be the all-time points leader in just 8 games!

How to Stream LeBron as He Becomes the All-Time Scoring Champ

Most streaming services offer primarily on-demand content. Think of Hulu and Netflix. For sports, you normally need a live TV streaming service. And that’s mostly the case with NBA games, which air on live channels.

For fans outside the Los Angeles area, it’s easy to watch every one of these games. Just by signing up with Sling Orange, you can watch 13 of these remaining 35 games for just $40.00/mo. You can watch five additional games on NBA TV, which you can get with the Sports Extra for $11/mo more. But you probably don’t want to do that.

Serious NBA fans should add NBA League Pass to to Sling TV for just $14.99/mo extra. This not only gives you NBA TV but also each game of every NBA team except for your local franchise.

So Sling Orange and League Pass will cost you a total of $54.99/mo, which is an amazing price for all the NBA along with great channels like AMC, BBC America, BET, CNN, Comedy Central, Disney Channel, Food Network, HGTV, History Channel, Lifetime, TBS, TNT, and, of course, ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPN3 (ABC Sports).

This plan will also allow you to watch the rest of the NBA season as well as the playoffs and the All-Star Game.

This also comes with 50 hours of cloud DVR storage so you can record this and other iconic moments to keep.

Streaming for LA Fans

Because of blackout restrictions, fans in Los Angeles cannot see most of the Lakers games through NBA League Pass. Instead, they must sign up with DIRECTV STREAM, which offers Spectrum SportsNet.

FuboTV is about to add a bunch of RSNs, so you might check with them. But currently, they do not offer the channel.

To get Spectrum SportsNet from DIRECTV STREAM, you must sign up for at least the Choice Package, which costs $99.99/mo.
