Lakers superstar, LeBron James makes history on Sunday night against the Phoenix Suns, becoming the first player in NBA history to reach 30,000 career points, 10,000 rebounds and 10,000 assists.
With his second assist of the night, LeBron found Carmelo Anthony on the left wing for a 3-pointer to bring up his 10,000th career assist, making him the only player ever with 10K/10K/10K. He’s added an extra 20,000 points for good measure.
Since entering the league, LeBron has displayed an all-around game and the numbers paint quite the picture, currently third all-time in points, seventh all-time in assists, and 39th in rebounds. He and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar are the only players to rank in the top 50 in all three categories.

In his 19th season, at age 37, he is currently leading the league in scoring as he looks to break Michael Jordan‘s record (35) as the oldest player to win the scoring title.
He entered tonight’s contest against the Suns just 135 points behind Karl Malone for second all-time in scoring, with Abdul-Jabbar’s place at the top in his sights.
