LeBron James Nods To Michael Jordan With

"For now, makes more sense for Lakers to use minutes on young players than a 34-year-old FA".

He had anticipated the achievement even before the game, tweeting that it will be "unreal". He now trails only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387 points), Karl Malone (36,928) and Kobe Bryant (33,643) on the league's all-time scoring list.

It was the Lakers' ninth loss in 12 games since LeBron returned from a groin injury, falling to 30-35 in the season, and the team now sits six-and-a-half games back of the final playoff spot.

The global fight against the Islamic State group is one conflict in a country that has been at civil war for almost eight years. The Syrian Democratic Forces commander-in-chief said last Thursday that his force would declare victory within a week.

LeBron James praised Lakers coach Luke Walton for being consistent this season. He's averaging 27.1 points, 8.6 rebounds and 8.0 assists this season. When asked about potentially sitting out games earlier this week, James said it wouldn't happen. "So to pass him in anything, especially scoring, would be something that we aren't going to see very often". Jordan finished with 32,292 points during his 15 seasons with the Chicago Bulls and Washington Wizards.

Five of the top six scorers in National Basketball Association history played for the Lakers, who signed James as a free agent last summer. By limiting the playing time for James, Los Angeles seems more than happy to start losing games and drop in the standings. But that also goes for the many members of the media who are still covering the Lakers, although they've probably gotten used to missing the postseason. "I don't know why it's a big deal now". 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.
