Cleveland Cavaliers All-Star forward LeBron James made NBA history last night in Cleveland, becoming the first player in league history to reach 30,000 points, 8,000 rebounds and 8,000 assists. 

LeBron's triple-double performance (31 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists) in the 129-123 win over the Brooklyn Nets also meant that, for the first time in his 15-year career, he averaged a triple-double for the entire month.

After the game he spoke with reporters about becoming the first to reach the 30K, 8K & 8K milestone, describing the feat as "pretty cool."

Per ESPN:

"With the long list of so many great players that have come through this league, in the history of this league, for me to be the only [person] in a category, I think it's pretty cool," James said, per ESPN. "It's pretty cool. I take pride in my game. I've always taken pride in being a triple threat since I started playing basketball, and I never wanted to be labeled as a scorer.

"I always wanted to be labeled as just an all-around basketball player; and I get more gratification out of the assists more than anything, because to get my guys great looks or they're knocking down shots, that means a lot to me."

The Cavs, 36-24, are still sitting in third place in the Eastern Conference but they hold just a half-game lead on the fourth place Washington Wizards.
