NBA superstar LeBron James recorded his 10,000th rebound tonight, becoming the only player with over 30,000 points, over 10,000 rebounds and over 9,000 assists.
It won’t be wrong to say that LeBron James is in a league of his own, and he proved it again Wednesday night at the Crypto.com Arena. The four-time champion recorded the 10,000th rebound of his career, making him the only exclusive member of an elite club.
James is the only player to have 30,000 points, 10,000 rebounds and 9,000 assists. The Lakers superstar is the only member of the 30K/10K/9K club. James in 19th grade continues to be a highlight reel. The four-time Finals MVP seems to be aging backwards.

Unfortunately, the Lakers suffered an embarrassing loss to the Pacers at home despite dominating the game for most of its games. The Lakers fell below +500, again, losing 111-104 to the Pacers. Frank Vogel’s team looked lost in the fourth quarter, with the Pacers outscoring them 35-24.

Despite the embarrassing loss, James has reached an important milestone.
LeBron James lands the 10,000th rebound of his career.
The Lakers lost to the 13th seed in the Eastern Conference Indiana Pacers. The Lakers bench was more effective than the starting lineup with the exception of James. Pacers point guard Malcolm Brogdon had an effective 19 points, 4 rebounds and 6 assists, playing through a sore right Achilles tendon.
However, the highlight of the Pacers’ performance was Caris LeVert, scoring 22 of his 30 points in the final quarter.
King James put on another impressive performance, scoring 30 points, 12 rebounds and 5 assists. The seventeen-time All-Star was 11 for 22 from the field and nearly 43 percent from the 3-point line. The superstar also hit 10,000 rebounds with this game.

The Lakers dropped James. The plan to build a super team of veterans hasn’t worked out so far, with people questioning Vogel’s training methods.
