LeBron James congratulates himself on 30000 points milestone... before he reaches it

Posted January 24, 2018

James will hit 30,000 points for his career on Tuesday night, provided he can score seven points, which will make him the seventh player in National Basketball Association history to accomplish that feat (eighth if you include ABA scoring to let Dr. J into the mix).

Cavaliers: With 30,021 points, James joined Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387 points), Karl Malone (36,928), Kobe Bryant (33,643), Michael Jordan (32,292), Wilt Chamberlain (31,419) and Dirk Nowitzki (30,808) on the list.

"There's so many people to thank who has help this even become possible [so thank them all] and when u finally get your moment [alone] to yourself smile, look up to the higher skies and say THANK YOU!" Both James and Cousins are set to become free agents this offseason.

"Just a special moment", James said when asked about the record.

"Congratulations to LeBron on reaching 30,000 points - yet another milestone in an extraordinary career that continues to inspire", NBA Commissioner said in a statement.

"The last time James failed to score seven points in a regular-season game was December 29, 2004, during his second season in the league". Throughout the course of his career, however, he's also done some things that aren't so humble - things like the Instagram post we saw on Tuesday. During his three-season stint in Cleveland, Dellavedova managed to average 6.0 points and 3.7 assists on 22.0 minutes per game. "Congrats again Young King" is one of the cockiest lines I've ever seen from an athlete. The Nets ended a two-game winning streak, matching their longest of the season.
