LeBron James scores in double figures for 500 consecutive times

Well, I just got done writing about LeBron James being in the league for 10 years, and now he goes off and does something else amazing. James scored in double figures tonight, and accomplished something great, via the AP:

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).

Its doubtful that we see James score 50 again, as he has better teammates now, and that isn’t necessary. Nonetheless, this is an amazing accomplishment. James keeps building up his accolades, and no one on earth has had a better two years than James has had. This is just another notch on LeBron’s impressive belt. Congratulations, but I’m sure he cares more about the number 3 than he does the number 500.
