LeBron looks to surpass Oscar Schmidt’s record in his 21st season

LeBron James makes his return to the Los Angeles Lakers for his 21st season in the NBA. Despite being at the height of his 38 years, the star considered retirement at the end of the previous season, but ended up changing his mind. Demonstrating his incredible versatility on the court, the “King” continues to redefine his playing style and persists in his pursuit of records, notably that of Oscar Schmidt.

With the start of this season, LeBron reaches a new milestone in his career, joining a select list of athletes who played 21 seasons in the league, including names like Robert Parish, Kevin Garnett, Dirk Nowitzki and Kevin Willis, all behind only Vince Carter, who boasts 22 seasons of participation.

This 21st season also brings a uniform change for LeBron. After three seasons wearing jersey number 6, he announced his return to number 23. This decision was a tribute to Bill Russell, a Boston Celtics legend who left us the previous year and who wore number 6. To date, no one has played as many seasons averaging minutes per game as high as LeBron (38.1) and averaging over 25 points per game (James maintains an average of 27.2). These numbers reflect not only the genius of the player wearing the number 23 shirt, but also his commitment to physical preparation.

After becoming the highest scorer in NBA history last year, LeBron now chases Oscar Schmidt on the list of top scorers in world basketball. The Brazilian has 49,737 points, while the American starts the season with 48,080. If LeBron maintains the performance of the last two seasons, he will finish the year at the top of this list.
