Anthony Davis reveals another NBA player likely to reach 40,000 points like LeBron James

During the game against the Nuggets at the Crypto.com Arena, the NBA world witnessed yet another record courtesy of LeBron James. The 39-year-old has made himself so synonymous with records that it seems out of the ordinary if he doesn’t make or break one.

After driving through the crowd of blue jerseys of the Nuggets players, LeBron scored the point in the second quarter to reach the 40K points milestone that makes him 1 of 1. The whole NBA community has reacted to the monumental event and Anthony Davis, who watched events unfold firsthand for years, has delivered his take on the piece of history.

Anthony Davis’ take on LeBron James’ record chasers

After LeBron James reached the 40k milestone, his teammate has a take on who could possibly join him to score the same career points.

During a post-game interview, the Lakers star Anthony Davis was asked who according to him could reach the recent record set by the NBA great LeBron James. Giving it a thought the 30-year-old replied, “You would think possibly Steph where he shoots the ball, but it’s not. And it’s just tough because he’s not finished playing so it’s only going to increase and you know that gap is only gonna get bigger and bigger.”

Davis feels that although one would think that Stephen Curry could reach his on-court rival LeBron’s record, because of his exception shooting abilities, but it is very difficult. The Warriors frontman has a total of 23,258 career points and given that he is 35 years old, it is hard for him to score 16,742 more points at his current average of 27.1 points per game.

Davis added that LeBron will keep scoring more points as he still has a long way to go which will keep increasing the point gap with his contemporary.

Anthony Davis on LeBron James reaching 40K points record

While talking to the reporters about LeBron James’ new set record, Anthony Davis revealed a tradition that follows every time the veteran sets a new record.

Davis jokingly said, “So now just telling him in the locker room like he might have to stop breaking records because we always lose on any time you break a record.”

Following the same tendency, the Lakers lost the game to Nuggets by 124-114. Similarly, when LeBron James broke Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s 38,387 points to become the highest scorer in NBA on Feb. 7, 2023, the Lakers lost to OKC by 133-130.

Davis commented on LeBron’s stability, the way he is still going strong averaging 25.3 points, 7 rebounds and 7.9 assists. The 9-time NBA All-Star is doubtful that anyone would cross King James’ record in the near future.
