LeBron James is 'no Michael Jordan,' says Skip Bayless

LeBron James created history at the Staples Center last night, going past Michael Jordan in NBA's all time points list, to secure 4th place.

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.

A few days earlier, James appeared in his 15th All-Star Game.

The reaction seemed fitting for a player who idolized Jordan growing up.

In Wednesday's game between the L.A. Lakers and the Denver Nuggets, James scored his 32,293rd point, getting fouled in the act. James now trails only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387 points), Karl Malone (36,928) and Kobe Bryant (33,643).

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.

"That would take a lot of convincing from Luke [Walton] on up", James told ESPN, referring to the Lakers coach as well as, most likely, everyone from general manager Rob Pelinka, to president Magic Johnson, to governor Jeanie Buss.

James, on the other hand, is in the first year of a four-year, $153.3 million contract with the Los Angeles Lakers. 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.

Though, Bayless should have pointed out that Jordan was playing with Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman, two of the best defenders in National Basketball Association history and, in Pippen's case, one of the top 10 small forwards in National Basketball Association history.

"I knew coming into this year that it would be different", James said after the Lakers' loss to the rival Clippers on Monday night.
