Things to Know


Rare combination of size, skill and savvy.

A contender for the moniker of best NBA player of all time, LeBron James appears to be the rare case of a player seemingly performing in his prime over the course of nearly 20 years. A four-time MVP, four-time NBA champion and four-time Finals MVP, James turns 37 in December, but has averaged at least 25 points in every season except his rookie year (2003-04), in which he won Rookie of the Year.

Career
A two-time Olympic gold medal winner with Team USA, James’ scoring average of 25 points or more for 17 consecutive seasons is an NBA record that he could extend in 2021-22.

James took the Heat to The Finals in all four of his seasons in Miami alongside Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, capturing two championships (2012, '13). In fact, James has led his teams to the NBA Finals in nine of the last 11 seasons.

During the 2020-21 season, James led all players in NBA All-Star voting for the fifth consecutive season and the eighth time in his career. A three-time All-Star MVP and the All-Star Game's all-time leading scorer (389 points), James earned a starting role in the All-Star game for an NBA-record 17th time in 2020-21.

Last season, he became the third player in NBA history to register 35,000 career-points, joining Hall of Famers Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Karl Malone in that elite grouping. James became the youngest player in league annals to reach that milestone (36 years, 50 days), while also getting there in the fewest number of games (1,295).

James currently ranks No. 2 among active players in triple-doubles (99), behind new teammate Russell Westbrook (184). He is No. 3 in all-time in field goals made (12,903) and No. 1 among active players.

On James’ 36th birthday (Dec. 30, 2020), he became the first player to finish in double-figures in scoring for the 1,000th consecutive game, which extended a streak that started back in 2007. James’ current streak, which is the longest in the NBA, sits at 1,040 games.

On Jan. 27, 2021, he scored 34 points against Philadelphia to join Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as the only Lakers to rack up 30 points or more in back-to-back games after turning 36 years old, according to Elias Sports Bureau.

James produced his 800th career 25-point game back in February to become the first player in NBA history to reach that milestone. James enters the 2021-22 season having scored 25 or more points in 812 games.

James has played a total of 50,054 minutes, the sixth-most minutes played in NBA history, ahead of Hall of Famers Kobe Bryant (48, 643) and Tim Duncan (47,367) and the most among active players. Among active players, Andre Iguodala (38,793) would rank second, followed by Lakers teammate Dwight Howard (38,487).

James logged his 252nd block in the 2021 playoffs against Phoenix to pass Dikembe Mutombo for 10th on the all-time postseason blocks list.

Through the LeBron James Family Foundation and Akron Public Schools, James opened the 'I Promise School' in an effort to close the educational achievement gap in his hometown of Akron, Ohio by providing additional resources and support to students that may be at risk of not graduating from high school. James announced in 2015 that students at the school meeting certain academic requirements would earn free tuition to the University of Akron, and that program later expanded to Kent State University.
