Exactly one year ago today LeBron James became the youngest NBA player to join the 30,000 career point club while battling the San Antonio Spurs! King James joins Kareem, Kobe, Karl (Malone), MJ, Wilt and Dirk as the seventh player to ever reach this distinguished mark. What’s equally impressive it the fact that LeBron James (had) amassed 7,000 rebounds and 7,000 assists while scoring that many points. When you look at LeBron’s game through the lens of a complete player then it’s easy to see Bron is much more like Magic 2.0 than Michael Jordan. With that said, when comparing James and Jordan head-to-head it’s hard to ignore that LeBron’s Swiss Army Knife-like qualities have made him equally potent offensively, and more versatile than Heir Jordan (riots erupt*).
In celebration of LeBron’s milestone we’re going to take a look back at some of the kicks worn by the Cavs and Spurs! It’s surreal seeing the players Cleveland had surrounding LeBron because most of them were gone before season’s end. Think about how many players LeBron James has suited up next to over the last 3 seasons… hint: it’s a lot of players. See for yourself below and remember to put some respect on LeBron’s name!
