LeBron James reached a new milestone as the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Brooklyn Nets on Thursday night. On a first-quarter and-1 layup, the 4-time MVP surpassed Hall of Famer Dominique Wilkins on the NBA’s all-time scoring list.
Breaking records and scaling new heights are nothing new for James, who earlier this season became the youngest player in NBA history to reach the 25,000-point mark.
Wilkins, nicknamed “The Human Highlight Film,” scored 26,668 points in 15 seasons. James, now in his 13th season, had already passed legends like John Havlicek, Tim Duncan, Alex English and Reggie Miller before surpassing Wilkins. His next target: Oscar Robinson.
It seems like James won’t be slowing down any time soon.
