LeBron James is the NBA’s all-time leading scorer
LeBron James made history on Tuesday night, becoming the NBA’s all-time leading scorer. The Los Angeles Lakers star passed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who had held the record for nearly 39 years.
The two-time NBA MVP has become a legend in the league, winning four championships with the Lakers and racking up an impressive 14 playoff appearances in his career. He is now in the middle of an improbable streak of eight straight NBA finals appearances and has been an integral part of the franchise for over a decade.
He has never averaged less than 25 points per game in a season and has adapted his game to be able to shoot from different spots on the court. He is a skilled scorer from both the 3-point line and the mid-range.
His ability to adapt to new situations has allowed him to overcome injuries throughout his career. He is also a very good defensive player, which helped him win back-to-back titles with the Los Angeles Lakers in 2011-12.
However, the most impressive aspect of James’s scoring record is that he has done so without missing a single game. This has helped him remain one of the most dominant players in NBA history and has earned him a reputation for being the best player in the world.
Despite his incredible longevity, James still remains one of the most dynamic and entertaining players in the game. He is always trying to improve his game and he continues to find new ways to win games for the Lakers.
He has a reputation for being a great teammate and he is known for his ability to take care of others. He is also a great passer, which has helped him earn his reputation as the best point guard in the world.
He has become the king of the mountain by combining a combination of great talent, consistency and longevity with an ability to adapt his game to suit different situations. His emergence as the GOAT has caused many debates regarding who is the greatest player of all time.
LeBron James is the NBA’s all-time leading rebounder
During his 20-year career in the NBA, James has dominated the game. He has racked up four NBA titles, four All-Star Game appearances and three MVP awards. He has also made an impact on the popular culture of the sport. He is a legendary figure and is regarded as one of the greatest players in NBA history.
James’s scoring prowess is undeniable, but he is a much more complete player than that. His ability to create and pass has earned him fourth place on the NBA’s all-time assist leaderboard. He also ranks among the top 10 in steals and defensive rebounds.
Many of his opponents believe that he is not a good scorer, but this is not true. In fact, James has scored more points than any other player in the league’s history. He has surpassed Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan along the way.
He is not only the league’s leading scorer, but he has also led the league in field goals made and true shooting percentage for seven consecutive seasons. He has also ranked in the top five in assists, steals and total rebounds for the past nine seasons.
The Cleveland Cavaliers selected him first overall in 2003, and he quickly made his mark by leading the team to its first championship. He was hailed as the “second coming” of Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan, but it was his work off the court that made him a superstar in his own right.
In addition to being a dominant performer on the court, James is an avid community activist. He regularly speaks to students and youths about the importance of sports, fitness and health. He has donated more than $2 million to charities, and has even started a program that helps children with special needs play basketball.
When James isn’t playing, he enjoys spending time with his family and friends. He is often seen at his son Bronny’s games and has a home in the Hollywood Hills.
After a slow start to the season, James has been in fine form recently. He has averaged 32.2 points, 8.5 rebounds and 7.3 assists during his last 30 games. He has won two Player of the Week awards and was nominated for Player of the Month. He is also on the verge of achieving another significant milestone in his career, which is to reach 40,000 points. He currently has 2938 points left to go, and is expected to reach the goal by the end of the season unless he suffers an injury.
LeBron James is the NBA’s all-time leading assister
After re-writing the NBA’s all-time scoring record last season, LeBron James is making a name for himself in other categories as well. The 38-year-old superstar made history on Tuesday by moving into fourth place on the NBA’s all-time assist list with 11 assists against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden.
Assists are awarded when a player passes the ball to a teammate to score and are often regarded as one of the most important factors in determining a player’s ability to make an impact in the NBA. After passing Mark Jackson and Steve Nash for fourth, James has 10,338 career assists and is now just 1,459 behind John Stockton for first place on the all-time list.
In fact, if he can keep up his current pace, James could pass Chris Paul and Jason Kidd in just four seasons and finish his career with 12,583. If he maintains that pace for the rest of his career and retires at age 37, it would leave him about 1,000 behind Paul for third on the all-time list.
Regardless of where LeBron finishes his career on the NBA’s all-time assists list, he is certainly one of the greatest players in NBA history. He also has the distinction of being the only player in league history to win three NBA titles and appear in 11 U.S. Olympic men’s basketball teams, including two gold medal wins.
James has always credited his passing skills as the primary reason why he is such an excellent NBA player. In addition to his passing, he also has been known for his ability to shoot the three-point shot.
He ranks second in NBA history for assists per game, and is tied for the most 3-pointers made with 373. He has also been a leading contributor to the Los Angeles Lakers winning five NBA championships and appearing in seven NBA Finals, a record that was unmatched by anyone before him.
With his impressive all-around skill set, it is no surprise that he has become an icon of the NBA. He is a household name and has helped to make the league better than it was when he started playing professionally in 2003. During his 20-year career, James has averaged 27.2 points and 7.3 assists. He also has 106 career triple-doubles, which is the most among all players in NBA history.
LeBron James is the NBA’s all-time leading steals
James’ record-setting scoring performance against the Los Angeles Clippers last month helped him pass Karl Malone, Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan to become the NBA’s all-time leading scorer. He’s on track to surpass Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who held the mark for 39 years, in just over a month.
This year, LeBron James is averaging 30 points and he has been one of the most efficient players in the league. This is an incredible feat, especially given that he’s 38 years old and only a few seasons away from becoming the oldest active player in the NBA.
As he reaches this important milestone, there are still plenty of records to break and many other accomplishments to look forward to. But as James approaches the end of his career, he said he wants to be remembered for more than just basketball.
To celebrate this historic accomplishment, the Los Angeles Lakers hosted a special ceremony after Tuesday night’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Longtime NBA photographer Nathaniel Butler gave James a piece of paper with the number 38,390 written on it.
The former NBA star received a round of applause from fans, as well as from his former teams, the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Miami Heat. He also shared a moment with Nike founder Phil Knight, who presented him with a commemorative plaque.
It’s clear that James has developed a unique skill set during his 20-season career, and that has helped him to excel in other areas of the game. In addition to his ability to score, he also has an incredible court vision and is a selfless player who makes the right play at the right time.
His all-time assists ranking is impressive as well. He is one of just seven NBA players, and the only non-point guard, to amass more than 10,000 assists. He has surpassed Magic Johnson and Steve Nash along the way, and currently sits fourth on the all-time assist leaderboard.
It’s a testament to James’ durability that he has been able to hold his own with some of the best point guards in the history of the NBA. He remains a force on the court, even in his advanced age, and has the potential to lead his team to multiple championships.
