BY THE NUMBERS: Milestones LeBron has reached so far this season


Posted at May 22 2018 05:06 PM

To say that LeBron James has been legendary this season sounds like an understatement. 

At 33 years old and in his 15th season in the league, the 4-time MVP has been defying Father Time.

After he broke Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's long-standing record for most field goals made in playoff history in the Cleveland Cavaliers' win over the Boston Celtics on Monday, ABS-CBN News runs down every major milestone that James reached and every record he broke this season.

Cavs record for most points

On November 3, 2017, James dumped 57 points on the Washington Wizards, tying Kyrie Irving for the Cavaliers record for most scored in a game. It was 4 points short of James' career-best 61, which he tallied as a member of the Miami Heat.

1st career ejection

James was ejected for the first time in his career on November 28, 2017, during the Cavaliers' win over the Miami Heat. Referee Kane Fitzgerald sent James to the showers, saying "he aggressively charged at me and then he used vulgarity in my ear a few times."

30,000-points plateau

On January 23, James became the seventh player in league history to reach 30,000 points and the youngest ever. He did so by hitting the final shot of the first quarter against the San Antonio Spurs.

On February 27, James became the first player in NBA history to tally 30,000 points, 8,000 rebounds and 8,000 assists. He finished February with a triple-double average, the oldest player to accomplish the feat in a calendar month.

'King' better than 'His Airness'?

The GOAT debate between James and Michael Jordan turned in James' favor in at least one particular scoring category. On March 30, James surpassed Jordan for most consecutive games scoring in double digits. He scored 27 against the New Orleans Pelicans, stretching his personal streak to 867 games tallying at least 10 points.
