As the seasons go on and on for #LeBron James, it seems he makes even more progress in the NBA all-time statistical lists, furthers his greatness, and adds to his legacy. This season will mark another great season for LeBron James as he has the chance to break some more great statistical records, some of which haven’t been touched before.

Scoring and rebounding

LeBron James will look to further his tally as he closes in on attempting to eventually be the NBA’s all-time scoring leader. King James is currently ranked number seven on the all-time scoring list behind players like Dirk Nowitzki, Wilt Chamberlain, Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Karl Malone, and number one: Kareem Abdul Jabbar.

King James sits at 28,816 career points, meaning he only needs 184 points to reach the 29k club for his career. He may be the seventh player in history to reach that mark, but what makes him unique is that he will be the youngest player to ever reach it, and it’s not even close. The King also has the chance to reach the 30k club this season, and move into 6th place on the list, but that wont happen until later in the season.

Rebounding is something else King James does at a high level, and he is proven in this statistical category. After having a great rebounding game in the first game of the season with 16 boards, LeBron James [VIDEO] now has 7,722 career rebounds. With 7,722 rebounds, The Chosen One only needs 278 rebounds to reach 8,000 for his career.

Cavs history and steals

LeBron James leads the #Cleveland Cavaliers in almost all major all-time statistics, including points, assists, steals and minutes.

Only one man leads LeBron in a few categories, and that's #Zydrunas Ilgauskas, leading the Cavs all-time in games, rebounds, and blocks. LeBron will look to pass Ilgauskas in these categories at some point in his career, but he will do so soon in one of these categories.

LeBron James, with 768 career games played as a Cavalier, needs just 4 games to pass Zydrunas Ilgauskas (771) for most regular season games in Cavaliers history. If LeBron stays in Cleveland for the rest of his career, he has a great chance of adding to that total, making it impossible for anybody else to ever catch him.

With 1,749 career steals (20th all-time) he needs just 4 steals to pass the legendary and recently retired Paul Pierce for 19th place. The Truth currently has 1,752 career steals. The next in line for James to pass on the all-time steals list is Shawn Marion (1,759) and Kevin Garnett (1,859).
