One night after moving into ninth place on the NBA's all-time scoring list, Cleveland Cavaliers star and four-time league Most Valuable Player LeBron James joined an illustrious club that only he can say he's a member of.

With his fourth assist of the opening quarter Saturday night against the Charlotte Hornets, James became the first frontcourt player ever to record 7,000 assists for a career.

Perhaps more notably, The King is now the only player to have scored at least 27,000 points, grabbed 7,000 rebounds, and dished out 7,000 assists, and it took him a little over 1,000 games to do it.

James entered Saturday's matchup averaging 24.1 points on 50.4 percent shooting, 7.7 rebounds, and a career-best 9.1 assists in 36.5 minutes.
