LeBron James obtains history by scoring a triple-double against every team throughout his fantastic career, adding to his storied legacy

Last week, LeBron James made history by becoming the first player to record a triple-double against every team in the NBA, a milestone that perhaps might not be met too many more times.

LeBron completed this impressive feat after posting a 25-point, 11-rebound, and 10-assist triple-double when the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder November 19. This game had to represent one of the most enjoyable moments for King James, even after winning three NBA Championships – including one for his hometown Cavaliers.

If there’s anyone that could potentially reach the feat next, it could be Russell Westbrook who is right behind him. If he could get a triple-double against the Thunder, his former team, he would become the second player to achieve this milestone.

King James first heard the news by coach Frank Vogel when he was teasing LeBron about the seven turnovers that he had in that game. When LeBron overheard that, he appeared to be unimpressed, for the most part.

"[via Sporting News]“I had no idea,” he said. “Coach Vogel came in here and said congratulations. I was like, I thought he was joking about my seven turnovers because I’ve been taking care of the ball so much. He told me I was the first player in NBA history to have a triple-double versus 30 teams, every team, so I was like, ‘OK. That’s pretty cool.'”"

It’s a monumental moment for King James and is definitely worth celebrating. LeBron is the 5th player in NBA history with 86 triple-doubles. However, the players ahead of him are Oscar Robertson, Russell Westbrook, Magic Johnson, and Jason Kidd – neither of those players managed to accomplish what LeBron just did.

LeBron and the Lakers are off to a sensational start this season. LeBron is back on top of his game, averaging 26 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists per game. In the process, he has the Lakers on top of the league standings, sitting at 15-2 through the first five weeks of the NBA season.

If LeBron James and the Lakers continue to play at this level, there’s no question that LeBron will be in the running to add some more hardware and individual accomplishments to his already storied NBA career.
