LEBRON JAMES

LeBron James surpassed 40,000 career points on Saturday (40,017 and counting), creating a new scoring club that won't be adding new members anytime soon — if ever. By the numbers: James, 39, has nearly 12,000 more points than the next-highest active player, Kevin Durant, who is only four years younger than him. If you took away all 2,381 of James' career 3-pointers, he would still rank fourth all-time with 32,874 points, 582 ahead of Michael Jordan. James has scored more points than Larry Bird (21,719) and Magic Johnson (17,707), combined. James has averaged 27.1 points, 7.5 rebounds and 7.4 assists during his career, but he's never had 27 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists in a game. James has only led the NBA in scoring once (30.0 ppg in 2007-08), but he's led the playoffs in scoring seven times. If you count his postseason stats, he's scored 48,040 career points.

MLB

The Giants signed three-time Gold Glove third baseman Matt Chapman to a three-year, $54 million deal, leaving LHPs Blake Snell and Jordan Montgomery as the top unsigned free agents. The Canucks signed four-time All-Star forward Elias Pettersson to an eight-year, $92.8 million extension, the largest contract in franchise history and the NHL's fifth-largest by average annual value ($11.6 million).

NWSL

The NWSL unveiled its 2023 regular season schedule, set to open on May 25 and featuring a 72-game slate. The league has 22 total teams, including the expansion Angel City FC and San Diego Wave FC. Expansion talks with Miami and Tampa Bay were tabled for this season.

NASCAR

Rajah Caruth won Friday's NASCAR truck series race, joining Bubba Wallace and Hall of Famer Wendell Scott as the only Black drivers to win a NASCAR national series race. It's been quite the journey for the D.C. native, who first fell in love with racing after seeing "Cars."
