LeBron passes Jordan for fourth on all-time National Basketball Association points list

The Lakers will be cutting back on the time Le Bron James spends on the court the rest of the season

LeBron James was sure to pay homage to Michael Jordan on the night he passed the Chicago Bulls legend on the all-time scoring list.

Sitting courtside with his family including his son, 2 Chainz was ecstatic to watch the magic happen but it's what he did afterward that's got people talking.

After the game, James reflected on reaching 32,311 points.

James began the night averaging 27.0 points, 8.7 rebounds and 8.0 assists while hitting 51 percent of his shots and playing 35.7 minutes per game for the Lakers.

The message was simple, saying only "Thank You MJ" with the number 23 that they share next to it. James of course, wears the number because of Jordan and has undoubtedly done the number justice with his accomplishments throughout his career.

James, the top scorer among active players, made his points in 1,190 games compared to 1,072 for Jordan.

But Bayless was quick to point out on social media that the Lakers are likely to miss the playoffs this year, while Michael Jordan at 34 (James' current age) was still winning NBA Championships. "For a kid from Akron, Ohio, that needed inspiration and needed some type of positive influence, M.J. was that guy for me". "It's just insane, to be honest".

"I wanted to shoot on the half-turn like him, to stick out my tongue while pounding my chest like him".

Jefferson, who spent two seasons alongside James in Cleveland before his final National Basketball Association go-round with the Nuggets, echoed Frye's critiques.

"I knew coming into this year that it would be different", James said after the Lakers' loss to the rival Clippers on Monday night. Kobe Bryant is third all-time, while Karl Malone and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar are second and first respectively.
