LeBron James has become the youngest player in NBA history to score 20,000 points. James eclipsed the milestone Wednesday night against the Golden State Warriors when he made a short jumper with 2:45 left in the second quarter to give him 2,001 career points. He needed 18 points entering the game to be the 38th NBA player to reach the mark. This jumper made LeBron James the youngest NBA player to score 20,000 career points at 28 years, 17 days. The previous mark was set by Lakers’ star Kobe Bryant, who got there when he was 29 years, 122 days old. In the first quarter, James also found Dwyane Wade slicing down the lane for his 5,000th career assist. He is the 13th player with 20,000 points and 5,000 assists. “The best part about it is I was in a rhythm, too, so it wasn’t one of those forced shots,” he said. “I was able to get the switch on David Lee and get to the elbow and make a shot. It’s pretty cool.”
