After surpassing Michael Jordan for 4th place in career points, LeBron James now chases National Basketball Association legends Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Karl Malone and Kobe Bryant for the No. 1 ranking.

Sitting courtside with his family including his son, 2 Chainz was ecstatic to watch the magic happen but it's what he did afterward that's got people talking.

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.

Despite James' 17 points, the Lakers trailed powerful Denver 66-49 at halftime, seemingly headed to their fourth straight loss.

This achievement was particularly special to James, who grew up in OH idolizing Jordan.

Of those, Malone is the only one who did not spend the bulk of his career with the Lakers.

Jordan averaged 30.1 points in 1,072 games with Chicago and Washington.

The 34-year-old James still has a ways to go to catch Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387), Karl Malone (36,928) and Kobe Bryant (33,643) for the top mark.

It was one of many great plays that LeBron has made during his career, but it was also one of many shots that he's taken.

Furthermore, it's unlikely that the four-time MVP will play in any more back-to-back games down the stretch. The Nuggets (43-21) closed with a 26-12 run to foil a Lakers rally. The Lakers aren't going to the playoffs this season and might as well start thinking about next season.
