LeBron James passes Kobe Bryant as fastest player to 29,000 points
The Cleveland Cavaliers have been struggling to start out the season, at least from a team aspect. They’ve gotten off to a 3-5 start, winning two impressive games against the Boston Celtics and Milwaukee Bucks while losing badly to the Orlando Magic, New York Knicks, Indiana Pacers, and Brooklyn Nets (without D’Angelo Russell).
While the team has struggled, their leader in LeBron James has climbed his way towards history. In the first eight games of the season, James has averaged 25.6 points, 7.3 rebounds, 8.9 assists, 1.1 steals, and 1.1 blocks per game. If there’s any negative to look at in his game, James is also averaging a career-high 4.5 turnovers per game as well.
Against the Washington Wizards on Friday night, James made history in the first quarter by scoring eight points and becoming the youngest player in NBA history to reach 29,000 career points
