The NBA superstar put up a whopping 30.3 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 6.2 assists a game.
And, yes, he has been in the league for 19 years and is 37 years old.
But he might be breaking his biggest record yet in the year to come.
LeBron James only needs to average 16.2 PPG next season to pass Kareem for the most points scored in NBA History.

That is because James is on track to surpass Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the most points scored in NBA history.
He will be passing that historic milestone in the upcoming season as long as he averages 16.2 points per game.
Considering he was putting up the aforementioned 30 per game last season, this record is all but broken.
This will be something very special.
James already holds a number of records in the league and is playing incredible ball even at his age.
When he passes Abdul-Jabbar in this way, will he be considered the greatest of all time by many more people?
Well, don’t be surprised when debate still rages – that’s just how the NBA and its fanbase works.
People will say that James somehow had it easier than Abdul-Jabbar, they will say that his legacy has asterisks.
That is going to happen so fans better just prepare.
But the numbers speak for themselves and even if people are saying this or that and arguing, no one can question just how impressive James’ career has been.
Last season saw Steph Curry break the all-time three-pointer record.
When James breaks this record in the upcoming year, you can expect a lot of fanfare, reaction, and, yes, detractors.
Plus, you can expect James to keep trying his hardest even after the record is broken.
