LeBron James surpasses 29,000 career points Staff

LeBron James continues to churn out milestones in an already historic career.

The Cleveland Cavaliers star passed the 29,000 career points mark on Friday night at Washington, becoming just the seventh player in NBA history to do so. At 32 years old, he is the youngest player in league history to reach that milestone, edging Kobe Bryant (33 years, 199 days) by a fair margin.

In the process, James also passed Kevin Garnett for 12th all-time in field goals made. In addition, the four-time Kia MVP needed just two steals to pass former All-Star forward Shawn Marion for 18th place on the NBA all-time steals list.
