With 25 points, 11 rebounds, and 10 assists in the Los Angeles Lakers’ Tuesday win over the Oklahoma City Thunder, LeBron James became the first player in NBA history to record a triple-double against every single team in the league.

“I had no idea,” James said after the game. “Coach [Frank] Vogel came in here and said congratulations. I was like, I thought he was joking about my seven turnovers because I’ve been taking care of the ball so much. He said first player in NBA history to have a triple-double versus 30 teams, every team, so I was like, ‘OK. That’s pretty cool.'”

Tuesday’s game was LeBron’s fifth triple-double through 14 games this season. He has 86 triple-doubles in his career, which ranks fifth all time.
