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. Since the injury, the Lakers have posted a record of 10-21.

Anytime you are able to surpass your idol it is a special moment and James even paid tribute to Jordan with a message on his shoes.

Of those, Malone is the only one who did not spend the bulk of his career with the Lakers. "For a kid from Akron, Ohio, that needed inspiration and needed some type of positive influence, MJ was that guy for me. I watched him from afar, wanted to be like MJ", James said. "You suck.You owe me a bottle of wine".

According to a report by Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes, the Lakers and LeBron James have agreed to a minutes restriction moving forward.

The Lakers' struggles have left some fans to ironically chant the name of the franchise legend, who is above James as a player in the eyes of some LA supporters.

James, the top scorer among active players, made his points in 1,190 games compared to 1,072 for Jordan. He trails Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387 career points), Karl Malone (36,928 career points) and Kobe Bryant (33,643 career points).

James hit two 3-pointers in the first quarter but also went 0-4 from the free throw line. The Lakers' star said that he would really have to be convinced to do that by his head coach, Luke Walton, and the team's front office.

Los Angeles isn't making the playoffs and playing LeBron heavy minutes is just going to put more miles on a body that's been through quite a lot.
