The NBA season is heating up as the postseason quickly approaches.
There are still a number of questions that need to be answered like which team will take the number one seed in the East, who will miss the playoffs, and who will be Rookie of the Year.
Yet there is another pressing question on every NBA fan’s mind.
That question is who will end up being this season’s scoring champion.
This is a race that keeps fluctuating every single night.
NBA scoring race update:
1. Embiid: 29.83
2. LeBron: 29.81
3. Giannis: 29.80
LeBron scores 38
1. LeBron: 29.96
2. Embiid: 29.83
3. Giannis: 29.80
At 37, LeBron would be the oldest scoring champ in NBA history.

Entering Monday night, Embiid led the way with an average of 29.83 points.
But then James and the Los Angeles Lakers took down the Cleveland Cavaliers, with James putting up 38 points.
Now King James sits atop the scoring champ race.
If he were to win the title, he would be the oldest scoring champion in NBA history.
At this point, James achieving this feat at 37 years old wouldn’t be a bit surprising.
James Pushes Forward
James has been breaking records and raising the bar all season long.
Despite his age, he has achieved quite a few milestones, including passing Karl Malone to become second on the all-time scoring list.
He also became the first NBA player to ever rack up 30,000 points, 10,000 assists, and 10,000 rebounds.
Additionally, he’s put up a couple of 50-point games.
Becoming the scoring champion would cap off a season that has shown just how remarkable he is.
Yes, his team is not playing very well but James has had a season that he should be very proud of.
The fact that he’s even in contention for the scoring champion title at this age is wild.
