LeBron James: What records can he break in 2022/23?

LeBron James is preparing for his 20th NBA season at the age of 37, and the Los Angeles Lakers star is poised to break several records.

While a fifth championship with the Lakers may be the ultimate goal, King James will be busy nonetheless as he looks to add to his already impressive resume.

All-time leading scorer

With 37,062 points scored, LeBron is the second highest scorer in NBA history. Only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is ahead of him with 38,387.

The gap between the two stands at 1,325 points, and last season James scored 1,695.

If he continues to perform, he will be the league's new scoring king, with fewer games played than Abdul-Jabbar.

More games played

The 'King' will enter the season with 1,366 games played and has the top 10 within reach.

If he stays healthy, he would surpass Tim Duncan, who is 10th with 1,392 games played.

If we go back to 2021/22, LeBron played 56 games for the Lakers. If he stays healthy, he can break that record as well.

LeBron James: What records can he break in 2022/23?

Most three-pointers in history

It's clear that no one will ever surpass Steph Curry as the greatest three-point shooter in history.

But LeBron doesn't want to be left behind and the top 10 is within reach.

It might be the easiest mark for James to break, because he currently has 2,140 and is just three away from tying Paul Pierce. He is well behind Curry's mark of 3,117.

Most triple-doubles in the NBA

He may not catch teammate Russell Westbrook (184 triple-doubles), but he can climb one more position.

With 99, he is eight away from tying Jason Kidd for fourth all-time in that department.

James has some work to do to catch Magic Johnson's 138, as last season he only recorded six triple-doubles.
