CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – With his eighth rebound Wednesday night LeBron James became the Cavs’ all-time leader in rebounds, passing Zydrunas Ilgauskas’ 5,904 club record.

“Big Z is one of my best friends,” James said. “He was one of the guys when I was drafted here and one of the guys I always looked up to and anytime I’m in the same category with Z is pretty cool.”

James also made NBA history in the process.

James is now the third player in history to hold a franchise record in points, rebounds and assists joining Michael Jordan of the Chicago Bulls and Kevin Garnett of the Minnesota Timberwolves.

“Jordan and KG, so it’s a pretty cool thing,” James, who claimed to be unaware of the feat, said. “I am blessed and I’ve been fortunate enough to play this game at a high level, for a long time.”

James won Wednesday night’s game against Minnesota at the buzzer in overtime with a turnaround jumper from the free throw line as time expired to give the Cavs a 140-138 victory over the Timberwolves.

He also recorded his 64th career triple double – ninth of the season – by finishing with 37 points, 10 rebounds and 15 assists in Wednesday night’s win.
