He did it. Already considered one of the greatest of all-time, Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James is now alone in fourth place on the NBA scoring list — surpassing the legendary Michael Jordan

It came on this And-1 against the Denver Nuggets Wednesday evening at the Staples Center.

The 15-time NBA All-Star, three-time NBA Championship and four-time MVP now sits with some of the immortals who have played this grand game of basketball. James now stands above His Airness.

Needless to say, those around the sports world paid their tributes to King James after this crowning achievement.
