LeBron on track for record

LeBron James continues his ascent towards the top of the American NBA’s all-time scoring list. With a free-throw late in the second quarter of the Los Angeles Lakers recent meeting with the Brooklyn Nets, James surpassed the 35,000-career-point mark in the 30th game of his 18th season in the NBA.

After surpassing Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan to become the league’s third all-time scoring leader last season, James only trails Karl Malone (36,928 points) and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387 points) on the all-time scoring list.

James, 36, becomes the youngest player in the history of the league to reach the 35,000-point plateau. Malone was 39 when he scored his 35,000th point while Abdul-Jabbar did so at age 38.

Former athlete to head Japan Olympic organising committee

Japanese athlete-turned-politician Seiko Hashimoto has been chosen as president of the Tokyo 2020 organising committee. She replaces a man who resigned after setting off a furore with sexist remarks.

Hashimoto, who competed in seven Summer and Winter Olympics as a cyclist and a skater, now faces a series of tough issues at the helm of one of the world’s biggest sporting events with less than half a year before its delayed start.

She must ensure that athletes and officials are kept safe from the coronavirus, while also facing strong public opposition to the Games being held amid the pandemic.

Rabbitohs for premiership

Rugby league reporter John Lanzky was very impressed by Souths’ performance in Mudgee on February 27: Rabbitohs 48 def. Dragons 16. “It was hard to pick an outright best on field. There were so many brilliant performances. Latrell Mitchell had a hand in six tries. Cody Walker scored a hat-trick. Adam Reynolds’ kicking game was spot on. Can’t wait for season 2021!”
