LeBron James is, arguably, the best player in the world today and if you ask Doc Rivers, one of the top five greatest of all-time.

After almost single-handedly driving the Cleveland Cavaliers to their first-ever NBA title, James has finally justified his immense talents, but he continues to show how special he is to the Cavaliers franchise every single week.

King James had the first triple-double on the opening night of an NBA season since 2006 and he is already the Cavaliers' all-time leading scorer.

However, during Cleveland's match with Orlando on Saturday night, King James added another title to his legacy.

After pulling down his fifth rebound, he became the Cavaliers' all-time leading defensive rebounder.

He now has 4,021 defensive rebounds and counting. Former Cavs pivot Brad Daugherty, who spent eight seasons in Cleveland during the 80s and 90s, was the previous record holder.

James is also the franchise record holder in assists - as well as holding the league record for most assists from a forward - and minutes and following Cleveland's 105-99 victory, James revealed how delighted he was with his new record.

“When you talk about Cavaliers history, Brad’s name means a lot,” James said after the game. “To be a part of this history for 10 years now of my career is pretty special. I’m just blessed that I’m able to put my name in history. That’s pretty special to this franchise.”
