LeBron James became the first NBA player to record 10,000 career assists, rebounds and points and established membership in the 10K Club Sunday night.
James and the Lakers were well behind the Phoenix Suns when he sent a pass across the court to Carmelo Anthony for a 3-pointer to notch assist No. 10,000.
He is the seventh player in NBA history to reach 10,000 assists.
James, 37, racked up 35,000 career points last month, putting him in exclusive company behind Karl Malone and Kareem Adbul-Jabbar. James is the youngest player to score 35,000 points.
James is on course to become the oldest player to lead the NBA in goals scored, helped by a 50-point performance against the Washington Wizards on Saturday. It was his second 50-point attempt in three games.
James went into the game with a 29.7 point average.
