Aside from the game itself, all eyes will be watching on LeBron James as the King is expected to make history by becoming the 7th player all-time and the youngest player to reach the 30,000 career points. He will join six other NBA legends and former NBA Superstar Wilt Chamberlain, Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Karl Malone and all-time scoring leader Kareem Abdul-Jabbar also on the list is Dirk Nowitzki the only active player on the list aside from LeBron James.
James failed to reach the milestone from their last game against the Oklahoma City Thunder in-front of the Cavaliers fans at Quickens Loans Arena, where many Cleveland fans are all expected to witness James making history, but the OKC denied James from scoring 25 points who just dropped 18 points in a very disappointing and humiliating loss to the Thunder.
Today’s game, James is 7 points shy of reaching the milestone, a history he will likely to accomplish tonight against the Spurs and it just a matter of time on when James will reach the mark when the game start.
As expected James reached the mark after a 2 PT. made basket from the upper left corner to reach the 30,001 career points with only 1.1 seconds to go in the 1st quarter. James was congratulated by his team mates and the Spurs fans for the historic achievement in tonight’s game.
Aside from the 30K milestone, James is also making history as he enters his 14th straight NBA All-Star this year after leading the 2018 All-star voting as the overall top vote getter.
