LeBron James keeps going and going and…..

The Accolades and Numbers for LBJ and More!

LeBron James is now only 158 points away from breaking the NBA all time scoring record. Kareem Abdul-Jabar set the record in 1984 who went on to score a total of 38.387 points.

If all goes well and LeBron keeps hits his season average of 29.9 points per game, give or take a few, he should break the record February 7 vs. the Okc Thunder.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver said Thursday during a news conference in Paris that, if the game in which James has a chance to break the record is not originally scheduled to be on national television, the league will adjust the schedule and put it there. Silver also implied that the league would also honor James at the All-Star Game in Salt Lake City if he breaks the record before the All-Star break.

All Star Team Captain LeBron James has officially received his 19th All-Star selection, which tied Lakers legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the most in league history.

Unlike the last five years, the draft for the All-Star game will be televised live just prior to the game itself on Feb. 19.

The other captain will be Giannis Antetokounmpo.

He has an estimated 180 cars and 160 motorcycles at his garage near Hollywood Burbank Airport.

TMZ caught up with Brad Pitt and asked him for a Super Bowl prediction. His response…”Chiefs Baby!”

No wonder, Brad’s been a longtime supporter of the Chiefs … while he was born in Oklahoma, he moved to Missouri at an early age and was raised just a few hours from Arrowhead Stadium.

After video surfaced of Patrick Mahomes at practice yesterday, jogging, and what not, the Chiefs went from an underdog to a two point favorite to beat the Bengals on Sunday

Cavs drilled the Houston Rockets last night 113-95. 

Donovan Mitchell and Kevin Love still listed as questionable for tonights’ matchup at OKC.

Tip off at 8pm. OKC a 1-5pt. Favorite.
