CLEVELAND -- With just seconds remaining in the 1st quarter of the Cleveland Cavaliers' matchup with the Spurs in San Antonio, LeBron James became the seventh player in NBA history to score 30,000 career points.
James' milestone-reaching basket came on a jumper, as he was guarded by former teammate Danny Green.
The 4-time MVP entered the Cavs' matchup with the Spurs just 7 points away from the 30,000 mark, which was last reached by Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki a season ago. In reaching 30,000 career points, James joins Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Karl Malone, Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, Wilt Chamberlain and Nowitzki as the only players in NBA history to accomplish the feat.
