LeBron James has become the youngest player in NBA history to reach 30,000 career points, surpassing Kobe Bryant’s previous mark by more than a year.
The Cleveland All-Star forward reached 30,000 points at the age of 33 years and 24 days and by comparison, Bryant reached the marker at 34 years and 104 days, more than a year ahead of Wilt Chamberlain (35 years and 179 days), who was third-fastest. Michael Jordan didn’t reach 30,000 points until 38 years and 321 days.
James achieved this fit in the first quarter of the Cleveland Cavaliers’ game against the San Antonio Spurs. They lost the game 114-102.
Interestingly, James reached 30,000 points in his 15th season and his 1,107th career game. He is the seventh player to reach 30,000 career points, joining Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Karl Malone, Bryant, Jordan, Wilt Chamberlain, and Dirk Nowitzki in the exclusive group.
