LeBron passes Jordan for 4th in career scoring

LeBron passes Michael Jordan on the all-time scoring list

The Los Angeles Lakers forward rose to fourth in the list after scoring on a lay-up with 5:38 to play in their game against the Denver Nuggets. Despite losing to the Denver Nuggets, LeBron James passed Michael Jordan in career points. "MJ was that guy for me", James said after the game.

LeBron is unlikely to have the same success Abdul-Jabbar did in Los Angeles, where he won five of his six National Basketball Association titles with the Lakers, and he will need to go some way to catch the league's all-time leading point scorer, who amassed his mammoth total over 20 seasons as a professional.

"It was very emotional", James said.

Although Lance Stephenson returned from a sprained toe that forced him to miss three games, the Lakers remained without Lonzo Ball, Tyson Chandler, Brandon Ingram and Kyle Kuzma. He would have hit this milestone earlier in the winter, but a midseason groin injury on Christmas sidelined him for 17 games over five weeks - the longest injury absence of his career.

However, the message is clear for Magic Johnson and the Lakers' franchise: Get the King another star (or two) or risk wasting the last few years of the greatest player in the history of the sport.

A 10-time All-Star, Anthony has a career average of 24 points per game.

The hold up is that Anthony does not want to sign with the team if they are out of playoff contention. "I don't know why it's a big deal now". "You take the challenge and you continue to stay positive, no matter what's going on".
