LeBron passes Jordan: Who's above James in the all-time points list?

Despite losing to the Denver Nuggets, LeBron James passed Michael Jordan in career points. I give a lot of credit to Alex [Harper] and Moe [Wagner] and J3 [Josh Hart], them coming in and having [not] played all year, and basically giving us an opportunity to try to win that game. I watched him from afar, wanted to be like MJ, wanted to shoot fadeaways like MJ, wanted to stick my tongue out on dunks like MJ, wanted to wear my sneakers like MJ. The internet buzz after that game was about LeBron James sitting at the end of the Lakers' bench with three empty seats between himself and the nearest Lakers teammate during an embarrassing blowout loss.

The 34-year-old James began the night needing 13 points to pass one of his heroes. He now trails only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387 points), Karl Malone (36,928) and Kobe Bryant (33,643).

Nuggets: Trey Lyles missed his seventh straight game with a strained left hamstring. As everyone knows, James scored the majority of those points in a Cleveland Cavaliers uniform.

Everything went south for the Lakers after a promising start to the season. Tyson Chandler (neck) and Lance Stephenson (toe) are listed as questionable.

The NBA might not like it, but it makes absolute sense for the Lakers to rest LeBron (and lose as much as possible) moving forward this season.

It happened late on the West Coast, but it was still historic. He finished with four points, shooting 28.6 percent from the field, although he added seven rebounds and 11 assists.
