Lebron James became the youngest player in NBA history to score 3,000 points in a playoff game in the Miami Heat's Game 4 loss to the Boston Celtics on Sunday night, 156 days after his 27th birthday.

Perhaps to no surprise, he's in pretty good company. In descending order, from the next youngest onward, the list reads: Kobe Bryant, who scored his 3,000th point at 28-years-old, Michael Jordan and Shaq. Larry Bird is now the fifth youngest player to reach the plateau.

Last night also marked the first time in his career that James fouled out of a playoff game. He hadn't fouled out of any games, including the regular season, since April 2008.
