Yet again, Lebron James is making history in the NBA. James has broken many records such as, being the youngest overall draft pick (age 18), youngest rookie of the year (age 19), and passing the all time great, Michael Jordan’s, record of having 25 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists in 75 playoff games, but he doesn’t take this lightly. In Tuesday’s game against the Detroit Pistons, James passed Scottie Pippen in the the all-time leading assists record by a forward. He now has 6,142 assists compared to Pippens 6,135. When asked about the record, James replied “The assists for me is something that’s very cool, it’s something that’s always kind of driven me out on the basketball floor, and seeing my guys succeed. And to know the category I was in, with like (Larry) Bird and Pippen, it’s huge.” Many athletes strive for goals to accomplish throughout their career and James has made it clear this is one he has always wanted and has passed.
