LeBron James is third ever with 700 points, 200 rebounds, 200 assists through first 25 games
The more games Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James plays in, the likelier his chances of breaking and setting records.
After leading his team to a 101-95 win Wednesday over the Sacramento Kings by nearly stitching together triple-double numbers of 32 points, 11 rebounds, and nine assists, James has become just the third player in NBA history to rack up at least 700 points, 200 rebounds, and 200 assists in the first 25 games of a season.
Those points also include the dagger 3-pointer James hit late in the Kings game to propel his team to the victory.
