LeBron James scored his 20,000th point and dished out his 5,000th assist in the Miami Heat's win over the Golden State Warriors last night, becoming the youngest player in NBA history to reach the 20K plateau. But since he came into the league straight out of high school, he's only the 8th fastest to reach the milestone.
James joined an extremely elite club though, becoming just the 12th player in league history to have 20,000 points, 5,000 assists and 5,000 rebounds. At just 28-years-old, LeBron is alongside Michael Jordan, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Karl Malone, LarryBird, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett, Oscar Robertson, Jerry West, Clyde Drexler, Gary Payton and John Havlicek.
