“It means everything,” James said. “It means a lot. First of all, like I  continue to say, it means I’ve been able to be healthy. To be out on the floor  and do what I love to do, I love the game of basketball and I try to give  everything to the game. And hopefully it continues to give back to me.” – nydailynews

King James took the throne yet again, beat out Kobe to become the youngest player in NBA history to eclipse 20,000 points! Lebron was only 28 years and 17 days old when he hit the magnificent milestone during the second quarter of last night’s lopsided 92-75 victory over the Golden State Warriors! He passed Kobe who hit the milestone at 29 years and 122 days old! More proudly, Lebron passed the 5,000 assists milestone during the game finishing with 25 points, 10 assists, and seven boards! Kobe and Lebron had a slight edge up on MJ and Wilt (Chamberlain) because they came straight out of high school to the NBA; Wilt actually accomplished the feat in the fewest games! Check out the video of Lebron getting his milestone and the chart of the youngest players to reach the 20K points milestone below!
