On a jump shot in the second quarter of Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals on Monday, LeBron James made the 2,357th field goal of his illustrious playoff career, eclipsing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as the all-time leader.

 

James finished with 44 points on 17-for-28 shooting in the Cavaliers' 111-102 win over Boston in Game 4, tying the series at 2-2.

 

He says he was "humbled," after learning about the event during the press conference.

To know where I come from, small city 35 miles south of here, and to hear I'm in the same category or talked about and jumping these greats in the playoffs, it's pretty cool.

"You hear the scoring, the field goals made, and for a kid that really doesn't care much about scoring," he continued.

 

However, James said there's more to him than even the considerable amount that's already known, or documented on film.

 

"You guys know a little bit of the story, but you guys don't know the full story of where I come from and the struggle I had," he said. "You guys know about the single parent struggle, and I know you heard that story, but there's a lot more to it, which I will talk about it when I am done playing ball."

 

We know with certainty that whatever new information we learn about James, he'll speak his truth as a living legend.
