The Lakers rallied from a 25-point halftime deficit to beat the Blazers on Sunday, marking the NBA’s biggest second-half comeback this season and matched the largest second-half comeback of LeBron James’ regular-season career.

“I’m excited to see it happen. I don’t see records as personal accomplishments, but more as human achievements,” Adbul-Jabbar said ahead of the 2021-22 season about LeBron potentially breaking his record. “If one person can do something that’s never been done, that means we all have a shot at doing it. It’s a source of hope and inspiration. Roger Bannister broke the four-minute mile back in 1954. Since then, not only have 1,400 runners beaten that time, but the new record is 17 seconds less. We…
