Monday night LeBron James became just the 24th player in NBA history to reach 25,000 career points — and he was the youngest to do it at 30 years, 307 days
And he crossed the line in style, finishing an alley-oop from Matthew Dellavedova.
LeBron put up numbers from day one in the league — he averaged 20.9 points per game as a rookie straight out of high school. That gave him an edge in getting to this milestone at a young age (that and he has rarely been injured). It’s just the latest milestone; there will be plenty more before he hangs up his shoes.
By the way, his bucket to get to 24,999 was pretty impressive in its own right.
