With Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James on the verge of becoming the NBA’s all-time leading scorer, ticket prices for the cherished game in which he will break the record are skyrocketing.
James needs just 63 points to break Lakers legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s record of 38,387 after a 26-point performance against the Indiana Pacers on Thursday night.
With James averaging 30.2 points per game, fans are predicting when he’ll get the job done.

James deviated from his average and made it in front of the Lakers loyalists against the Oklahoma City Thunder on February 7th in the Crypto.com Arena. Of course players sometimes have a day off and averages are just that – an average of what might happen on any given night.
Some believe James could even make it against the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday, February 9th. Not only is it a great duel with Giannis Antetokounmpo and company, but it will also be a nationally televised game on TNT.
That means many more people could tune in live to perhaps see history written by the Akron, Ohio native once more.
NETS LOBET LEBRON JAMES’ KYRIE IRVING AFTER BEATING LAKERS: ‘STILL DOMINANT’ AT 38.
Looking at the game on the secondary ticket markets against The Thunder, the lowest cost for a seat at Ticketmaster, which has verified tickets for resale, is $369.05 with service fees.
However, with seating closer to the action on the floor, prices go up tremendously.
Two courtside seats currently cost a total of $242,000 after fees.
It costs $100,000 a seat to sit between the Lakers’ scorer’s table and the Lakers’ bench while still having a real front-row seat to watch James potentially set the new goal-scoring record.
Other courtside seats also cost $108,900 and $60,500.
FORMER KNICK SAYS LEBRON JAMES MUST ‘CHECK EMOTIONS’ AND ‘GO ON’ AFTER RESPONDING TO MISSED FOUL CALL.
For the game against the Bucks, the same two courtside seats are for sale for $242,000. However, the cheapest seat in the house is higher than the Thunder game at $445.
The price of those seats is already astronomical, but it could go even higher when James and the Lakers play the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday night. James will have the chance to continue crossing points from this list and give fans a clearer picture of when he could break the record.
While it’s a lot of money—buyers also can’t back out once all sales are final—we’re witnessing something that may never happen again in NBA history.

At age 38, James is playing in a capacity comparable to Tom Brady, who is finally retiring from the NFL at age 45. His level of play has only gotten better with age, and there’s no telling when he’ll ever stop lacing up his kicks, especially with his eldest son, Bronny James, soon to be eligible to play in the NBA.
