    • LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers becomes the first NBA player to score 40,000 career points.
    • He achieved this milestone during a game against the Denver Nuggets, scoring 26 points despite the Lakers’ loss.
    • LeBron, known as “The King,” now holds numerous records, including most consecutive games with at least 10 points and four NBA championships.

    LeBron James, the basketball superstar playing for the Los Angeles Lakers, just achieved an incredible milestone in the NBA world.

    He’s the first player ever to score a whopping 40,000 points in his career. It happened during a game against the Denver Nuggets. LeBron zipped past Michael Porter Jr. and made a layup, marking his historic 40,000th point.

    Even though the Lakers lost the game 124-114, LeBron still managed to score 26 points and gave out 9 assists.

    LeBron, also known as “The King,” is no stranger to breaking records. Just over a year ago, he became the highest scorer in NBA history, surpassing another Lakers legend, Kareem Abdul Jabbar.

    Now, LeBron sits comfortably at the top with an astonishing 40,000 points. Abdul-Jabbar is second on the list with 38,387 points, while the late Kobe Bryant, another Lakers icon, holds fourth place with 33,463 points.

    It took LeBron 1,475 games to reach this milestone, which is fewer games than it took Abdul-Jabbar, who needed 1,560 games. That’s quite an achievement!

    LeBron’s not just about scoring points; he’s also known for his consistency. He holds the record for the most consecutive games scoring at least 10 points, managing to hit double digits in a remarkable 1,161 straight games.

    When asked about his incredible act, LeBron humbly admitted that he never set out to break records. He just loves playing the game and lets things happen naturally.

    Scoring all those points wasn’t a specific goal of his when he started playing basketball professionally.

    He’s still going strong and believes he’ll keep racking up points until he decides to retire.

    LeBron’s not just about individual achievements; he’s a team player through and through. He’s won four NBA championships, one of them with the Lakers in 2020.

    He’s also bagged four NBA Finals MVP awards, and four regular season MVP titles, and has been selected for the All-NBA First Team an incredible 13 times! That’s a testament to his skills and dedication to the game.
