LeBron James has just eclipsed another career milestone, and it’s pretty impressive.
With a putback dunk at 2:31 of the first quarter against the Raptors Tuesday night, ames became the fifth player in NBA history to score 10 points or more in 500 consecutive games.
“When I see a stat like that, I’m like ‘Wow,’ because I know the history of the game, I know the guys who paved the way for myself and my teammates,” James said. “To be in such a great class like that, it’s an amazing feeling.”
James said he was humbled to join Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (who had two streaks of 787 and 508 games), Michael Jordan (866), Karl Malone (575) and Moses Malone (526) as the only players to accomplish the feat.
“I just go out and play every night, and those are the results,” he said.
