On Wednesday January 16, LeBron James became the youngest player in NBA history to score 20,000 points.
The Miami Heat were facing the Golden State Warriors as LeBron James attempted to reach two milestones in his already historic career. LeBron had his mind set on winning the game instead of breaking the record.
Not only did LeBron score 20,000 career points that night against the Warriors, he also earned 5,000 career assists.
LeBron is the youngest player in league history to win Rookie of the Year, the youngest player to record a triple-double, and the youngest player to score 1,000 points. He also was the youngest to score 10,000 points and win MVP at an All-Star Game.
Other than LeBron, only Kobe Bryant, Wilt Chamberlain, and Michael Jordan have set those records before turning thirty years old. This shows that LeBron James is one of the most dominant players to ever play in the NBA.
In the record setting game, LeBron scored twenty five points, but only needed eighteen to set the record. History was made.
