King of the World Record

The jumper was a fadeaway. The memory never will. For the first time in 39 years, the NBA has a new all-time scoring leader. Axios: LeBron passes Kareem. “I write ‘The Man In The Arena’ on my shoe every single night from Theodore Roosevelt. Tonight, I actually felt like I was sitting on top of the arena when that shot went in, and the roar from the crowd. I’m not sure if I would be able to feel that feeling again, unless it’s a game-winning Finals shot.”

+ “Just how long has James been playing in the NBA at a high level? Long enough to face nine father-son duos in games.” A great roundup of takes and videos from Kottke.

+ A cool visualization of all the King’s buckets.

+ In other sports news, Aaron Rodgers will mull NFL future during a four-day ‘darkness retreat.’ (If I’m understanding this correctly, that means we won’t have to hear from Aaron Rodgers for four days. Don’t say I ignore good news…)
