LeBron James keeps collecting more and more honors in his already great career. The Los Angeles Lakers figure became only the fourth player in the history of the league to score 33,000 career points on Wednesday night.

The veteran hit the mark with a 3-pointer over New Orleans rookie Jaxson Hayes, a player who was three years old when James began his NBA journey in 2003. Back in the day, he wasn't known for his 3-point shots, but as always, Bron and his game have evolved.

This season he is hitting better than 35% from beyond the arc for the eighth time in his career. He also currently leads the league in assists at 11.0 per game and ranks 10th all-time on the NBA assists list.

You can say he's not a selfish player, but still, that hasn't been an obstacle for him to become one of the most prolific scorers in the history of the league.
