LeBron James made history on Monday (Nov. 2), when he became the youngest player in NBA history to score 25,000 points.

King James, who is 30 years, 307 days old, beat a mark previously held by Kobe Bryant, who reached the plateau at 31 years, 151 days old.

He also became the the 20th player to reach 25,000 points and the sixth active player, joining Bryant, Dirk Nowitzki, Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce.

James reached the mark with an alley-oop dunk with 8:07 remaining in the fourth quarter of a 107-100 win over the Philadelphia 76ers.

"The man above definitely put a stamp on it," James said afterward. "What better way to close in on it than by me kind of high-flying a little bit. The man above definitely reached down and touched me a little bit."
