LEBRON JAMES IS HISTORY! 1st OF EVER to score 40,000 points in the NBA

Just over a year after surpassing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s now mythical record as the NBA’s all-time leading scorer, the Los Angeles Lakers superstar has written another page of basketball history. Saturday night LeBron James became the first player in league history to score 40,000 career points, reaching that threshold with a layup in the first half of the showdown between his team and the Denver Nuggets, defending champions.

LeBron James came into tonight’s game just 9 points shy of the 40,000 mark after a pair of dominant outings earlier in the week. On Wednesday, he authored the greatest fourth-quarter comeback of his legendary career, single-handedly outscoring the Los Angeles Clippers 19 to 16 in the final frame and pulling off a textbook win with 34 points, 6 rebounds, 8 assists, 2 steals, and a season-high 7 triples on target.

Just 24 hours later, James rescued the purple-and-gold from an embarrassing loss to the lowly Washington Wizards, putting up 31 points, 4 rebounds, and 9 assists, including an epic two-action sequence in overtime that included a rebounding stoppage right after a three-pointer.
