In a historic moment on Saturday night, LeBron James cemented his legacy as the first NBA player to reach 40,000 career points. 

The Los Angeles Lakers' star achieved this milestone during a home game against the Denver Nuggets, securing his place in basketball history.

While James technically surpassed the 40,000-point mark earlier, when including postseason contributions, he now boasts over 48,000 total points. 

This feat solidifies his records for most regular-season, playoff, and combined points, showcasing his unparalleled scoring prowess across two decades. Despite nearing his 40th birthday, LeBron James shows no signs of slowing down. 

Averaging over 25 points per game this season, he maintains a remarkable streak of hitting the 20-year mark for scoring at this level. With no clear endpoint in sight, James continues to redefine expectations for scoring longevity.

As James extends his lead on the scoring charts, no active player has even reached the 30,000-point mark. His relentless scoring ability raises the possibility of setting an unbreakable record, leaving a lasting legacy in the annals of basketball history. (Source: CBS SPORTS)
