Social media reacts to James passing Jordan

LeBron James overtakes Michael Jordan's points total

James, the top scorer among active players, made his points in 1,190 games compared to 1,072 for Jordan. James' former Cavaliers teammates Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye, who playfully roasted LeBron prior to the game. This is going to be UNREAL!

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

The Los Angeles Lakers, despite the best efforts from some unlikely contributors, ultimately came up short against the Denver Nuggets, but that wasn't the big story of the night.

The 56-year-old also had an incredible knack of converting those displays into much higher points tallies, scoring 40-plus points on an incredible 173 occasions, as well as 50-plus points 31 times. "Michael is a guy that guys like LeBron, myself included, grew up watching".

James, 34, entered Wednesday night averaging 27.0 points per game this season, his 15th National Basketball Association campaign. Incredibly, James is in a tie for second yet three behind on three.

With James playing alongside four youngsters who came in with a combined 200 games of National Basketball Association experience compared to LeBron's 1,190, the Lakers almost rallied from a 23-point deficit in the fourth quarter. Sad that maybe I'd never get to root for the best player I'd ever seen again.

On his current pace, James figures to pass Bryant next season and could overtake Abdul-Jabbar by the end of his Lakers contract in the 2021-22 campaign if he stays healthy. It's ridiculous. It took him long enough.
