LeBron James Youngest Ever to Score 20,000 Points in NBA History
The all-important, record-breaking bucket came with 2:46 left in the second quarter.
LeBron James entered Wednesday night’s tilt with the Golden State Warriors needing just 18 points to reach the 20,000 career points plateau. He tallied 13 of them while playing all 12 minutes of the game’s opening period, featuring a pair of delectable dunks (one of which came on the back end of a half-court lob from Dwyane Wade). But the all-important, record-breaking bucket came with 2:46 left in the second quarter on a pull-up jumper from just inside the free-throw line.
At 28 years and 17 days old, he broke Kobe Bryant‘s previous mark by more than a year (29 years and 122 days).
