LeBron James is referred as the greatest player of all time to grace the sport of basketball. The NBA star has a number of records to his name and works wonders every time he’s on court. Recently, he smashed another mind-bending record.
NBA.com confirms that LeBron has amassed 30,000 PTS, 10,000 AST, 10,000 REB in his career. The Lakers’ star is the only player to achieve this amazing stat. Fans are certainly excited to see their beloved player reach new heights.
LeBron’s 10,000th career assist came on a cross-court pass to Carmelo Anthony for an open 3-pointer. LeBron has not only claimed a spot in the 10K-10K-10K club, but he did so with an extra 20,000 points to spare.
Despite these amazing scoring stats, LeBron has maintained he’s not a scorer. When he passed Jordan as the NBA’s top playoff scorer of all time, he insisted that he did not want to be referred to as such.
“I’m not a scorer. I don’t want to be labeled as a scorer. I can put the ball in the hoop, but I’m a playmaker, I’m a player. Put me on the court and I’ll find ways to be successful.”
It’s safe to say, LeBron is much more than a scorer and he impacts all aspects of the game. His playmaking and rebounding numbers proves his contribution to the game. Meanwhile, stay tuned to Thirsty for future updates.
