Some call him the G.O.A.T., and if he hasn’t already proven that title to you, his latest accomplishment will do it.
LeBron James has just become the youngest player, at 33, in NBA history to score 30,000 points in his career. He is the 7th player in history to join the 30,000-point club, transcending Kobe Bryant, who hit the same mark at the age 34.
There is no doubt that his winning game on Tuesday night against the Spurs, will forever hold a place in his heart and memories, bringing his career total of points to 30,021.
According to ESPN, James joins others like Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387), Karl Malone (36,928), Kobe Bryant (33,643), Michael Jordan (32,292), Wilt Chamberlain (31,419) and Dirk Nowitzki (30,837 and counting).
