Current and former National Basketball Association stars, celebrities and members of the media took to social media Wednesday night to congratulate LeBron James on becoming fourth on the NBA's all-time scoring list, as he surpassed his idol, Michael Jordan.

The veteran broadcaster went off on Rajon Rondo and the Los Angeles Lakers' leadership during the team's 115-99 loss to the Denver Nuggets.

James scored 31 points and surpassed Michael Jordan's 32,292 career points on a driving layup during the second quarter. "MJ was that guy for me", James said after the game. He now trails only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387 points), Karl Malone (36,928) and Kobe Bryant (33,643). Said the jubilant James. James acknowledged that Walton has definitely been trying to lead the Lakers, despite the disappointing season. "He makes everybody around him better".




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. For Kuzma, it was the start of what could be a week-long absence as he recovers from a sprained ankle.

Before the 2018-19 season, Anthony signed a one-year, $2.4 million minimum deal to team up with James Harden and Chris Paul in Houston. The Lakers (30-34) have faded ever since James was injured, going 10-20 and falling to the fringe of the playoff race even after his return. LeBron hasn't missed the playoffs since the 2004-2005 season, but seems resigned to his fate this year.

The Lakers, who have lost four of their last five games to fall three games under.500, trail the Spurs by 4.5 games for the last playoff spot in the Western Conference.
