Lebron James Making History for the NBA

Lebron James Making History for the NBA

As we see sports develop we start having super humans of sorts come into play and redefine what the sport really means. In tennis there is Serena Williams, in golf there is Tiger Woods, in football there is Tom Brady, in boxing there is Muhammad Ali, but finally and after the recent passing of another late legend of the Lakers, Kobe Bryant, there came a new all-star, Lebron James, who would come to set new boundaries for the sport with firsts in multiple areas.(Listed below)

  • Only player in NBA history to record at least 34,000 points, 9,000 rebounds, and 9,000 assists.
  • Only player in NBA history to post at least 2,000 points, 500 rebounds, 500 assists, and 100 steals in four consecutive seasons.
  • Only player in NBA history to post at least 2,000 points, 500 rebounds, 500 assists, and 100 steals in a single season for at least eight seasons.
  • Only player in NBA history to post at least 2,000 points, 500 rebounds, and 500 assists in a single season for at least eight seasons.
  • Only player in NBA history to average at least 25 points per game for 15 consecutive seasons.
  • Only player in NBA history to be in the top 5 all-time in points and top 10 all-time in assists.
