NBA Fans Discuss Which Player Will Follow LeBron James As The Face Of The League: "Steph Ain't The Face Already Beside LeBron?"

LeBron James is one of the greatest players ever, and there is no doubt that he has a case for being the best all-around player that we have ever seen. He has almost no weaknesses offensively and is a stout defender as well.

Next season, it is possible that LeBron James will break the all-time scoring record currently held by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, a Los Angeles Lakers legend. Recently, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar spoke about LeBron James potentially breaking his record, claiming that he'd be happy for the forward and adding that the game will "always improve" when those legendary records are broken.

If LeBron breaks the record, and it looks like he has every reason to break it, I'll be very happy for him. The game will always improve when records like that are broken. So LeBron should enjoy his achievement. He's worked very hard to get this far... It's about passing it on to the next guy in line.

There's no doubt that LeBron James breaking the scoring record will be a huge moment in NBA history, and it is clear that Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is going to be happy if it were to happen. LeBron James' longevity is unprecedented, and it shows in his ability to potentially break this longstanding record. 

The Los Angeles Lakers were disappointing last season despite LeBron James' individual brilliance, but perhaps we will see that change next season. Darvin Ham was brought in to be the new head coach after the team let Frank Vogel go, and perhaps he can help them get back to a "defense-first" mentality and make sure LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and Russell Westbrook can coexist. Hopefully, we see the Los Angeles Lakers get back to the playoffs next year, and there's no doubt that everyone in the franchise will do everything in their power to make that happen.
