Another day, another record for LeBron James.
The three-time NBA champion, four-time MVP just surpassed Shaquille O'Neal (28,596 points) for seventh place on the league's career scoring list with 28,599, in 153 less games.
LeBron eclipsed his former teammate after converting a freethrow in the fourth quarter, finishing with the usual 26 points, 10 rebounds, and 8 assists.
Next up on the record books is Dirk Nowitzki (ranked sixth all-time with 30,181), who can pad his stats while still playing for the Dallas Mavericks. But given LeBron's health and consistency, retiring as the NBA's career leading scorer—which also means topping Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's 38,387—isn't too farfetched.
Going back to celebrating this milestone, it's rather fitting to look back at some fond memories between The King and The Big Aristotle, on and off the court:
Shaq's consolation? Another game, another loss for the reigning champions. Despite the feat, the Cleveland Cavaliers fell to the Chicago Bulls, 99-93. LeBron and co. are now half a game behind the Boston Celtics for the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference.
