LeBron James Becomes Youngest Player In NBA History To Reach 20,000 Points & 5000 Assists

share on:

LeBron James has been a star from roughly the minute he entered the NBA in 2003, and over that time he’s accomplished a heck of a lot. As a player who can do pretty much anything he wishes on the court, LeBron has accrued a lot of numbers over that time, and in his 10th season he’s starting to hit some impressive round numbers as part of his natural assault on the NBA record books.

On Wednesday night in Oakland, James hit two of those marks against the Golden State Warriors in the midst of a blowout 92-75 win. Five minutes into the game, he found a cutting Dwyane Wade for an easy dunk to notch his 5,000th assist. Later, with just over 2:45 left in the first half, LeBron dribbled to his right and knocked down a pull-up jumper to become the youngest player to 20,000 points in NBA history.

LeBron finished the game with 25 points, 10 assists, and seven rebounds in just 30 minutes of play.
