During Thursday's game against the Brooklyn Nets, Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James reached a significant milestone, scoring the 35,000th point of his career.
James is the third player in NBA history to record 35,000 career points, joining the only two players who are ahead of him on the NBA's all-time scoring list: Karl Marlone (36,928) and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387).
James reached 35,000 at the free-throw line after being fouled on a lay-up attempt. This season, he is averaging 25.7 points per game while shooting 50.4% from the field and 37.8% from three-point range.
With the way LeBron has been playing as of late, even at 36 years old, it's very possible that he could end up being the league's all-time scoring leader when he eventually decides to walk away from the game.
