The NBA has reached the playoffs, so the regular season is already in the rearview mirror. Teams are thinking of nothing more than making the Finals and winning a championship.

LeBron crosses 30K point threshold

LeBron has passed yet another marker on his journey toward basketball immortality.

With a basket at the end of the first quarter in a game against the San Antonio Spurs on Jan. 24, the Cleveland Cavaliers small forward became the seventh NBA player to score at least 30,000 career points. It’s rarified air – the names above him read like a who’s who of the game’s greats. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Karl Malone, Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, Wilt Chamberlain and Dirk Nowitzki (the only other active player to have crossed that threshold).

He is also the youngest to do so by more than a year, reaching the mark at 33 years, 24 days; the previous fastest to 30K was Bryant at 34 years, 104 days. His relative youth – as well as the fact that he continues to perform at the highest level – means that he has a real shot at continuing to climb the list.

Maybe even all the way to the top.
