Lebron James reacts as he become first basketball player to hit 39,000 points

Los Angeles Lakers superstar, LeBron James, has reacted to making NBA history after he became the first player to break the 39,000-point barrier.

James hit the mark as the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Utah Jazz to reach the knockout stage of the league’s new in-season tournament.

“I haven’t really had an opportunity to wrap my head around what it means,” James said of his latest scoring milestone.

“There’s been so many great players in this league since the beginning of time, and so many great scorers.

“To be able to be the first of anything is always pretty cool. A wild moment, for sure.”

The 38-year-old, needing just five points to reach the milestone heading into the game, etched his name into the record books with a three-pointer in the first quarter of a 131-99 Lakers win.

James, who passed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar last season to become the NBA’s all-time leading scorer, saluted the crowd as his achievement was announced.
