LeBron James Becomes Youngest NBA Player To Join 30,000-Point Club

Heading into Tuesday night’s game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the San Antonio Spurs, LeBron James needed seven points to reach the 30,000 career point milestone. James became the seventh player with 30,000 career points when he hit a jumper with one second left in the first quarter. He finished the game with 28 points, though it was not enough for the Cavaliers to win the game as the Spurs went on to win 114-102.  The 14-time All-Star is also the youngest person to join the prestigious point club, at the age of 33 years and 24 days. He bested Kobe Bryant, who was 34 years and 104 days when he reached the mark. In addition, James became the first NBA player to add 7,000 rebounds and 7,000 assists to his point total.
