The 37-year-old became the first person in the history of the sport to reach 30,000 points, 10,000 assists and 10,000 rebounds. Lebron achieved this feat in the game between La Lakers and the Phoenix Suns.

James expressed his delight after the game as he reached such a milestone in the sports. He finished the game with 31 points, seven rebounds and six assists.

Well, my team-mates congratulated me after the game.My mom texted me at half-time. I didn’t see it until after the game. It’s just pretty… I get a loss of words anytime things like this happen to me. I automatically start thinking about my hometown of Akron and my upbringing where I come from. The dreams I had of being in this league and playing at the highest level and to now sit alone in a statistical category in this league. I model my game after being able to score, rebound and assist. And to sit alone in a stat, I’ll say cool, but it doesn’t quite make sense to me. It’s an honour to be a part of this league. No matter what’s going on in the season, you try to take the victories that happens throughout the course of a long marathon. Tonight is not only for myself, but for my hometown and for my family and friends

He is the seventh player to reach 10,000 assists in his player and the 39tj player to record 10,000 rebounds.
