LeBron James reached a milestone on Tuesday that no other player in NBA history has achieved. James became the first NBA player to earn a triple-double against every team in the league. The last team to get a triple-double from Bron was the Oklahoma City Thunder.
King James dropped 25 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists on the Chris Paul led Thunder to reach the milestone. The Lakers also won the game 107-112.
“Coach Vogel came in and said congratulations, I thought he was joking about my 7 turnovers,” LeBron told reporters after the game. The future Hall of Famer seemed particularly unmoved during post-game making sure to shout out the players and coaches he had in his career for making this achievement possible.
James later posted a screenshot of a text from his mom congratulating him on his accomplishments.
Russell Westbrook is next in line to accomplish this feat. Westbrook recorded a triple-double against every team as a career-long member of the Oklahoma City Thunder. Now a Houston Rocket, Russ will have to get one against his former team to be the second in history to get a triple-double against every team.
