$200K for Seats to Watch Lakers' LeBron James Break NBA Scoring Record — Yes, You Read That Right

King James could become the NBA's new all-time leading scorer on Tuesday when the Lakers take on the Thunder at home

LeBron James’ inevitable trajectory to becoming the NBA’s all-time leading scorer is setting the stage for sky-high ticket prices.

James is just 63 points away from shattering Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s record of 38,387.

Nothing is guaranteed. But James, who's averaging around 30 points per game this season, could have a real shot at breaking Abdul-Jabbar’s mark when the Los Angeles Lakers take on the Oklahoma City Thunder at Crypto.com Arena on Tuesday, Feb. 7.

There are still plenty of tickets available in the low hundreds as of this writing. But courtside, the price for a pair of corner seats near the purple and gold hardwood are steeper. Way, way steeper.

The listing on the Ticketmaster website, labeled as verified resale tickets, has the two seats priced at $200,000. Then there’s the added $46,000 service fee and $2.95 for order processing.

Forget buyer’s remorse. Once you've purchased the tickets, there’s no going back. "All Sales Final — No refunds or Exchanges," the website says at checkout.

Is a quarter million dollars worth the price of admission to witness King James, maybe, possibly, make history? There’s the very real possibility that he could instead break the record after Tuesday night’s game.

The Lakers play the New Orleans Pelicans in New Orleans Saturday. Should James have an off night scoring-wise against New Orleans, it will become tougher to break the record on Tuesday. And should James sit out of Saturday's game, then he would need a career-best 63-point performance against OKC.

If he comes shy of 63 points by Tuesday night vs. the Thunder, James has another shot at home against the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday.
