It was determined long ago that LeBron James would take a place in the NBA Hall of Fame when he retires from professional basketball, but that doesn’t mean he can’t still smash records on his way to doing so. The latest milestone to fall by the wayside is that of the youngest player ever to score 25,000 points. James pulled off an alley-oop dunk during the Cavs win over the Philadelphia 76ers last night, handing himself a career total of 25,001 points for his NBA career. At 30-years, 307 days. James now holds the flag. For how long remains to be seen. Across to the NFL, and the San Francisco 49ers have dropped quarterback Colin Kaepernick to the bench in favour of Blaine Gabbert. The past two seasons have been nightmarish for Kaepernick, and his fall from grace appears to be complete. The news was reported yesterday that he’s been put on the bench and, judging from his recent form, he might well stay there.
