LeBron James passes Michael Jordan in career points

Los Angeles Lakers forward Le Bron James drives during the game between the Los Angeles Lakers and New Orleans Pelicans at the Smoothie King Center on Saturday

Last night, the Los Angeles Lakers lost to the Denver Nuggets 115-99.

James sat alone at a far end of the bench, his face buried in a towel. So if the Lakers are going to escape from tonight with an upset, they'll need an even more monstrous effort from LeBron James and Brandon Ingram to pull it off. "This is going to be UNREAL!".

James finished the game with 31 points, seven assists, and seven rebounds.

First licensed cannabis shop approved in Toronto
Back on January 11, the Ontario government announced the first 25 companies that were able to apply for cannabis retail licences. More than 17,000 expressions of interest to receive a licence were accepted prior to the decisions, according to the AGCO.

James finished with 31 points, moving his fourth-best National Basketball Association career total to 32,311, and added seven rebounds and seven assists for the Lakers (30-35). Halfway through the 2nd quarter, James drove to the hoop for a lay-up. When James and Rondo are on the court together, the Lakers plus-minus for the season was -55, which dipped to -62 after last night's lethargic performance against Denver. James wears the same No. 23 worn by Jordan and recalled being 15 when he first met his idol. James has said he grew up in Akron admiring Jordan as "the best ever" while he led Chicago to six championships in eight years during the 1990s. "We're witnessing greatness. It's an honor". It may not be a big deal for Rondo, but it shows just his game just doesn't fit with LeBron nor with the current Laker core.

"I saw the lane and I took it", LaVine said.

Jimmy Butler scored 22 points against his former club in a losing cause. He bettered Jordan's 32,292 career points with another variation of the brute physical brilliance that defines his playing style - a style that was influenced by Jordan's combination of grace and aggressiveness. Any talk of the Lakers having a chance at this point is the networks trying to sell you a reason to watch this team for the rest of the season.
