LeBron James Is The Only Player In NBA History To Be Top-10 All-Time In Points, Assists, And Steals

LeBron James Is The Only Player In NBA History To Be In The Top-10 On The All-Time Points, Assists, And Steals List

LeBron James has been on an incredible run over the last few months. At 37 years of age, James has been playing some of the best basketball of his career. And with the Lakers needing him to play at the center position, it has only enhanced his play over this run. James has been making a lot of history lately, and last night, he made even more.

During the Lakers' game against the Memphis Grizzlies, James had two milestone accomplishments. He entered the top 10 of the NBA's all-time steals list (2,113) and surpassed Oscar Robertson to take the 7th spot on the NBA's all-time assists list (9,888). On top of that, James is already the 3rd highest scorer on the NBA's all-time scoring list (36,170).

This statistic makes James one of a kind, as he is the only player to be in the top 10 of the NBA's points, assists, and steals list. In fact, no other player is even in the top 30 all-time in each of these lists. This achievement shows just how incredible James has been over the course of his career.

James has been climbing all of the NBA's charts recently. He surpassed Oscar Robertson to take 4th place on the NBA's all-time free throws list. And he recently crossed 36,000 points, becoming the youngest player to reach that milestone in NBA history.

With James now playing at the center position in the absence of Anthony Davis, many fans have remarked how James is a better point guard than Russell Westbrook and a better center than Anthony Davis. James is showing that he can play any position, something he said in the past and is proving these days. James needs the Lakers to step up, as they have not been performing anywhere close to the level he has.
