'It's crazy': LeBron James on surpassing Michael Jordan's career points total

09 March 2019

Deep into the first half of Wednesday's game against the Denver Nuggets, Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James scored a layup that moved him into fourth place on the all-time National Basketball Association scoring list, surpassing Michael Jordan's 32,292 career points.

The Los Angeles Lakers superstar scored his 32,293rd point on a driving layup in the second quarter against the Denver Nuggets, getting fouled in the act and hitting the ensuing free throw. James now trails only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387 points), Karl Malone (36,928) and Kobe Bryant (33,643).

James is averaging 35.6 minutes per game this season, tying a career low for the 16-year veteran.

Chicago PD launches internal probe over leaked information in Jussie Smollett case
Apparently, last Tuesday, she was called in at the end of her shift, was sacked on the spot, and was escorted out of the hospital. Jussie Smollett stirred up controversy when he was listed as a suspect in his own apparent attack and arrested as a result.

LeBron carried a mediocre roster in Cleveland all the way to the NBA Finals last year, and the 34-year-old clearly had no interest in attempting the same feat this year, but LeBron was the one who chose to join a team that clearly wasn't ready to compete for a title. He finished with four points, shooting 28.6 percent from the field, although he added seven rebounds and 11 assists.

And you also likely know that things are looking even darker for head coach Luke Walton, who many expect to absorb the brunt of the damage done by not making the postseason. "We want to make sure we're not only playing at our best come the end of the season but that he's fresh".

Many fans have questioned James' decision to move to a franchise that has been struggling in recent times but the former Cavaliers' star thinks differently.

The Lakers have lost three in a row and five of their past six.

James has played in the last eight consecutive NBA Finals, and he hasn't missed the playoffs since 2004-05, his second NBA season.

It's a big deal now because the Lakers are in free fall.
