LeBron James Becomes First Player In NBA History To Reach 40K Points


LeBron James became the first player in NBA history to record 40,000 career points during the Los Angeles Lakers’ loss to the Denver Nuggets on Saturday night.

James came into the game needing nine points to reach the mark. James hit the 40,000 point total in the second quarter and finished with 26 points in the game.

“No one has ever done it. And for me to be in this position at this point and time in my career, I think it’s pretty cool. Does it sit at the top of the things I’ve done in my career? No. But does it mean something? Of course. Absolutely. Why wouldn’t it?

“To be able to accomplish things in this league, with the greatest players to ever play in this league, the NBA, this has been a dream of mine and to hit feats and have milestones throughout my career, they all mean something to me,” said James earlier this week.

James surpassed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and became the league’s all-time leading scorer last season.

Kevin Durant is the closest active player to James’ scoring total with 28,342 points.
