LeBron James becomes fifth player to score in double figures for 500 consecutive games

BREAKING: LeBron James is really good. I think he has a future in this league.

Also, he is consistent.

On Tuesday night, LeBron James became the fifth player in NBA history to score at least 10 points in 500 straight regular season games. Not too shabby.

A four-time MVP, James joins Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (with streaks of 787 and 508 games), Michael Jordan (866), Karl Malone (575) and Moses Malone (526) as the only players to accomplish the feat.James has reached double figures in every game since scoring eight points at Milwaukee on Jan. 5, 2007. He scored 19 at New Jersey the following night. James has more regular-season games of scoring at least 50 points (nine) than nights where he’s scored less than 10 (eight).

That’s some pretty good company, if I say so myself. But does that support LeBron as one of the all-time greats? I know there are still some stingy people that won’t let LBJ crack their top-10. Sad. We’re watching greatness. Enjoy it.

Also, he did this last night:
