Seventeen years into his NBA career, LeBron James is still finding new records to set.

The Los Angeles Lakers All-Star became the first player in league history to record a triple-double against all 30 teams after he posted a triple-double in the team's 112-107 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday night.

It was James' fifth triple-double of the season, which included a three-game streak of triple-doubles to begin this month.

After his triple-double against the Chicago Bulls on Nov. 5,Β JamesΒ told reporters,Β "A triple-double means absolutely nothing to me if it's not in a win." So the three-time NBA champion likely cares more about the fact that the Lakers sit atop the Western Conference at 12-2.
