There’s been a number of memorable moments in LeBron James’ career, but he cemented himself in history on Monday night (May 21)… with a single shot.
In the second quarter of Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals, he hit a 22-foot jumper that officially earned him the 2,357th field goal of his postseason career, passing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the all-time mark.
Yep, LeBron is now the all-time leader in field goals made in NBA history!!!
King James would go on to score 44 points to lead the Cavaliers to a 111-102 win over the Celtics and tying the series 2-2.
“To know where I come from, small city 35 miles south of here, and to hear I’m in the same category or talked about and jumping these greats in the playoffs, it’s pretty cool,” James said of the feat. “You hear the scoring, the field goals made, and for a kid that really doesn’t care much about scoring.”
This isn’t the first all-time mark of his career though. During the 2017 postseason, LeBron passed Michael Jordan to become the all-time postseason scorer.
Additionally, he ranks first in all-time playoff minutes, first in all-time playoff steals, third in all-time playoff assists, seventh in all-time playoff rebounds and is tied for 16th in all-time playoff blocks.
