LeBron James, Kyrie Irving set scoring milestones for Cavaliers


The milestones keep coming for LeBron James.

After surpassing Hakeem Olajuwon last Saturday to become the NBA's 10th all-time leading scorer, the King enhanced his resume further on Friday by becoming the youngest player in NBA history to reach 27,000 career points.

In the company of only nine other NBA greats, James surpassed the prestigious point marker with a first-quarter three-pointer against the Washington Wizards.

James wasn't the only Cavalier ascending scoring lists, however. Kyrie Irving was also making moves up the franchise's ranks.

Irving had 6,583 career points coming into Friday's game. After Campy Russell, the next on the Cavaliers' list is Larry Nance (8th) with 7,257.
