LeBron James is just seven points away from scoring 30,000 career points, a feat achieved by only six other players in NBA history.

With the Cleveland Cavaliers playing the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday, James is apparently confident he’ll reach the milestone.

On Tuesday, James celebrated the occasion by posting an Instagram congratulating his younger self on the achievement and telling his younger self to take a moment to appreciate it.

“Wanna be one of the first to Congratulate you on this accomplishment/achievement tonight that you’ll reach!” James wrote. “Only a handful has reach/seen it too and while I know it’s never been a goal of yours from the beginning try(please try) to take a moment for yourself on how you’ve done it! The House you’re about to be apart [sic] of has only 6 seats in it(as of now) but 1 more will be added and you should be very proud and honored to be invited inside.”

James hasn’t scored less than seven points in a game this season, so there is a good chance that he’ll reach the 30,000 mark. Still, for a player who has had some strange social media moments over the years, this is certainly a new one.

Wanna be one of the first to Congratulate you on this accomplishment/achievement tonight that you’ll reach! Only a handful has reach/seen it too and while I know it’s never been a goal of yours from the beginning try(please try) to take a moment for yourself on how you’ve done it! The House you’re about to be apart of has only 6 seats in it(as of now) but 1 more will be added and you should be very proud and honored to be invited inside. There’s so many people to thank who has help this even become possible(so thank them all) and when u finally get your moment(alone) to yourself smile, look up to the higher skies and say THANK YOU!
