Lebron James Makes History

The 34-year-old, Lebron James, made history by becoming the first NBA player to record a triple-double against every team in the league.

He hit 25 points, with 11 rebounds and 10 assists against the Oklahoma City Thunder Tuesday night. The Lakers beat the Thunder 112-107.

James now has recorded 109 triple-doubles in his career and 86 regular season triple-doubles through seventeen seasons. His 86 regular season triple-doubles are actually less than four other players including- Oscar Robertson, Russell Westbrook, Magic Johnson and Jason Kidd.
