Lakers Star player LeBron James (36) has now become the first player in NBA history to score at least 10 points in every one of his last 1000 games. With such a record under his name, he has currently become the player with the title of ‘most consecutive 10+ point games’.
His 1000th game was against the San Antonio Spurs and the game turned out to be a victory milestone in the professional career of this Los Angeles Lakers’ star, LeBron James. The player who finished the game against the Spurs with 11 points, celebrated his 36th birthday by achieving this milestone in NBA history.
Lebron James Ahead Of Michael Jordan And Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
Now that he has set this record, the scoreboard shows that he is ahead of long-time players like Michael Jordan (57) from the Chicago Bulls and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (73) from the Milwaukee Bucks and the Lakers. The former has a record of 886 games and the latter has a record of 787. LeBron James, the youngest among the three has raced past these records to make a total of 1000 straight games with 10+ points.
Lakers fans are impressed to know that their star player scored less than 10 points in a game in 2007, 5th January. For that game had scored 8 points. James also has a record of scoring single-digit figures in his games only eight times in his entire professional career in basketball. And six out of those eight single-digit score games are from his time as a rookie back in 2003 and 2004.
This double-digit streak is only accounted for in regular season games. Back in 2011 and in 2014, LeBron James had scored less than 10 twice in two playoffs. However, even if we add these to his other single-digit games then his total of less-than-10-points games come to 10, which is not even 15 of all the 1529 games that he has played in his career up till now.
