LeBron James hits 20,000 Points

Published on January 17, 2013 by Scott Shirley   ·   No Comments

Last night LeBron James added another accomplishment to his long list of records. In the Heat’s win over the Warriors James became the youngest player in NBA history to score 20,000 points.

James did so at 28 years and 17 days. The previous record was held by Kobe Bryant who got to 20,000 at 29 years and 122 days. Of course James did this the fastest because he started his career right out of high school unlike Michael Jordan.

James in the 38th player in NBA history to reach this mark. In the same game James also recorded his 5,000 career assist. Only 13 players in NBA history can say they scored over 20,000 points and have 5,000 assists.

James was also the youngest to Rookie of the Year, record a triple double, score 1,000 and 10,000 and take MVP honors in an All Star Game.

“That’s a big-time moment,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “He’s a special guy. He’s a special player. He’s a once-in-a-generational type of player.”
