Now, James trails only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387 points), Karl Malone (36,928) and Kobe Bryant (33,643) on the all-time scoring chart.

As for LeBron, the majority of his points came with the Cavs, and the franchise gave him an opportunity to showcase his talents as one of the best to ever play the game.

While it looks poised to be a disappointing first season in LA for James, who appears in line to miss the playoffs for the first time since 2005, he can console himself with another outstanding individual achievement.

The next target for James would be retired Lakers star guard Kobe Bryant, who is third on the National Basketball Association career list with 33,643 points.

The actual design of James' Nike LeBron 16 paid respect to Jordan by incorporating the cement theme made famous on the Air Jordan 3.

As a result, Jordan's praise will always be, and rightfully should be, at a minimum considering the competitor that still lives within him.

"That would take a lot of convincing from Luke [Walton] on up", James told ESPN, referring to the Lakers coach as well as, most likely, everyone from general manager Rob Pelinka, to president Magic Johnson, to governor Jeanie Buss. Although James has only played 47 games for Los Angeles, he has charged up the career scoring chart in that time: He passed Dirk Nowitzki for sixth place in October, and he passed Wilt Chamberlain for fifth in November.

James, on the other hand, is in the first year of a four-year, $153.3 million contract with the Los Angeles Lakers.

James's personal streak of eight consecutive NBA Finals appearances is in jeopardy, in addition to his run of 13 straight postseason appearances.

The Los Angeles Lakers fell even further out of the Western Conference playoff race on Wednesday night, losing to the Denver Nuggets at Staples Center. "You take the challenge and you continue to stay positive, no matter what's going on".
