King James passes Payton


On the night before his 35th birthday, LeBron James reached another milestone.

The forward became the ninth player in National Basketball Association history with 9,000 assists during the Los Angeles Lakers’ 108-95 victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday night.

James reached the mark with 4min 35sec remaining in the first quarter when he fired an outlet pass to Anthony Davis three-quarters of the way down the court for a dunk. It was one of 13 assists on the night for “King James” as he surpassed former Seattle SuperSonics great Gary Payton (8,966).
