    LeBron James closing in on history as he moves toward breaking NBA all-time scoring record

    LeBron James finished with 27 points in the Los Angeles Lakers' 131-126 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans Saturday, leaving the 38-year-old needing 36 points to surpass Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's NBA all-time scoring record. James struggled out of the gates but was able to finish the game strong, adding nine rebounds and six assists in the loss. Lakers forward Anthony Davis finished with a team-high 34 points and 14 rebounds. There were a lot of cheers at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans whenever James touched the ball, but fans will have to wait a little longer for the record to be broken.

    Would a Kyrie Irving deal give Lakers a lift? LeBron James answers, 'duh'

    With the trade deadline just five days away and Kyrie Irving having already informed the Brooklyn Nets he wants out, LeBron James was asked if Irving -- whom he teamed up with for three NBA Finals appearances and a championship with theCleveland Cavaliers-- is the type of player who can stamp theLos Angeles Lakers'title chances. Last month, Lakers vice president of basketball operations and general manager Rob Pelinka declared, "If there's an opportunity to get all the way to the end and win a championship, there's no resource we'll hold onto if we feel like that's there." Trading for Irving almost assuredly would require the Lakers to include both their 2027 and 2029 first-round picks in the package, especially with other teams like the Dallas Mavericks, Phoenix Suns andLA Clippersalso preparing trade bids for Brooklyn, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.
