LeBron James Notches Another Career Milestone, First Player to Record 30,000/10,000/9,000
LeBron James has been in a league of his own for quite a while now. In the Lakers’ Wednesday night 111-104 loss to the Indiana Pacers, Bron took yet another step toward cementing his monstrous career, securing his 10,000th career rebound and becoming the first and only player in League history to record 30,000 plus points, 10,000 plus rebounds, and 9,000 plus assists.
The King is now just 93 assists away from becoming the first 30,000/10,000/10,000 player in NBA history.
With just 4:11 remaining in the fourth, James chased after a missed three by Torrey Craig to notch the landmark board. In 37 minutes of action, the four-time MVP dropped 30 points, 12 boards, and five dimes alongside two steals, becoming the 42nd player in the League’s history to reach 10,000 rebounds, joining fellow teammates Dwight Howard and DeAndre Jordan as the only active players to reach the milestone.
After their fourth loss in five games, James and the Lakers will look to find their groove once again against the Orlando Magic on Friday.
