LeBron James becomes 1st player in NBA history to score 40,000 career points


All-time NBA scoring champion LeBron James has reached a new milestone.

James is now the first player in NBA history to score 40,000 career points. The Los Angeles Lakers All-Star officially crossed the threshold on Saturday night in their game against the Denver Nuggets at Crypto.com Arena.

James entered the game with 39,991 career points after he put up 31 points in their win over the Washington Wizards on Thursday. He scored his first bucket on Saturday on a fast break layup midway through the first quarter, and then he followed it up with a 3-pointer just minutes later. James then opened the second quarter by making a layup through a pair of Nuggets players.

Then two possessions later, James made another layup after driving through Michael Porter Jr. to get to 40,000
