NBA, LeBron James reaches 40,000 career points

He arrived with 10:39 to play in the second quarter, yet another page in the history of a career to remember: with a penetration against Michal Porter Jr. LeBron James reached 40,000 points scored in his career, the first and only to succeed in NBA history.

“If it’s one of the most important accomplishments of my NBA career? No. Does it mean anything? Of course it means it, I’d be lying if I said otherwise. No one has ever achieved it, and the fact that I’m the one doing it is something fantastic. Every major milestone in my career means something to me, because achieving certain goals in this league, against the best players in the world, is something I’ve always dreamed of,” said LeBron James. Approximately thirteen months ago the #23 of the Lakers surpassed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to become the best scorer in the history of the league. Since then he has been racing alone, and in the match against Denver (lost) with his 26 points resulting from an excellent 12/20 shooting he brought the total points scored in his career to 40,017. No other active player has reached 30,000.
