James moves into the fourth spot on the NBA's all-time scoring list.

Late previous year, Lakers All-Star forward LeBron James publicly stated that he would appreciate the chance to play with Anthony in Los Angeles if the opportunity presented itself.

James scored 31 points and surpassed Michael Jordan's 32,292 career points on a driving layup during the second quarter. He now trails only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387 points), Karl Malone (36,928) and Kobe Bryant (33,643).

"It was very emotional", James said. He was even seen coaching the team back when he was sidelined with injuries.

She was quick to point out that she was no hater of the Lakers, however - or James, for that matter. "He makes everybody around him better".

He said passing Jordan "ranks right up there at the top" of achievements in a career that has included three championships and four Most. Although James has only played 47 games for Los Angeles, he has charged up the career scoring chart in that time: He passed Dirk Nowitzki for sixth place in October, and he passed Wilt Chamberlain for fifth in November. For Kuzma, it was the start of what could be a week-long absence as he recovers from a sprained ankle.

Lakers president of basketball operations Magic Johnson was one of the first to congratulate James on Twitter.

The 34-year-old averaged 13.4 points and 5.4 rebounds in his short time in Houston.

Rajon Rondo decided during Wednesday night's Los Angels Lakers loss to the Denver Nuggets that he didn't want to sit with his teammates on the bench, perhaps a sign that he and the rest of the team have given up on this frustrating season. "You take the challenge and you continue to stay positive, no matter what's going on".
