LeBron James passes Kobe Bryant for NBA record

LeBron James is no stranger to making history.

Apart from driving the Cleveland Cavaliers to their first-ever NBA title last season and fulfilling a career-long promise in the process, James has a ton of individual accolades, too.

He is the Cavaliers' all-time leading scorer and the all-time leader for assists, plus, no forward in NBA history has racked up as many dimes as the King and he is still only 31-years-old.

He's a long way from being finished and during the Cavaliers' 105-94 victory over the Washington Wizards last night, James dropped a significant three-point dagger.

LeBron became the youngest player in NBA history to 27,000 points at 31 years and 317 days, beating Kobe Bryant's record of 32 years and 160 days.

The funny thing is, James does not consider himself a scorer first and when you think about his aforementioned assist records, the fact that he can score so many points while dishing out so many assists is quite mind-boggling.

The Cavs have made a decent start to their title defence this season and have gone 7-1 thus far. James is averaging 23.4 points, 9.3 assists and nine rebounds through the first eight games - there could be plenty more records and titles in his future.
