With two insane dunks, LeBron James becomes NBA's youngest ever 25,000 point scorer

LeBron James crossed 25,000 in style, destroying a rim in Philly.

LeBron James came into Monday's game against the 76ers chasing history, and he sprinted past the mark. This rim crushing slam put James at 24,999 points, right on the brink of passing Kobe Bryant as the NBA's youngest ever 25,000 point scorer.

With another alley-oop finish, James secured his (inevitable) place in NBA history.

The combination of the NBA's age limit, and LeBron's ridiculous early career scoring numbers might let this record stand for quite some time.

Or not.
