Kevin Garnett reaches 25,000 career-point milestone against the Lakers (VIDEO)

Feb 8, 2013, 12:01 AM EDT

With a spinning, fadeaway jumper over the Lakers’ Earl Clark midway through the second quarter of Boston’s destruction of L.A. on Thursday, Kevin Garnett reached 25,000 career points, becoming the 16th player in NBA history to record the accomplishment.

The list of players Garnett joined with at least 25,000 career points is an impressive one, and includes Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Karl Malone, Michael Jordan, Wilt Chamberlain, Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O’Neal, Moses Malone, Elvin Hayes, Hakeem Olajuwon, Oscar Robertson, Dominique Wilkins, John Havlicek, Alex English, Reggie Miller, and Jerry West.

Garnett is such a unique player, though, that he’s on a statistical list all his own — he’s the only player in history to have at least 25,000 points, 10,000 rebounds, 5,000 assists, 1,500 blocks, and 1,500 steals over the course of his career.
