Being mentioned in the same sentence with Michael Jordan is an honor. To actually surpass the greatest to play the game in any category is an even greater honor. On Thursday night, Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James moved ahead of Jordan when it came to scoring at least 20 points.

The Cavaliers’ official Twitter account posted one of James’ most remarkable accomplishments this season during a game between the Cavs and the Philadelphia 76ers.

LeBron James scored 30 points in a 108-97 loss to the Sixers.

The milestone reflects James’ commitment to excellence and consistency. Though a great passer, he is also a gifted scorer and one of the best in the history of the league.

Scoring 20 points for 927 games is a huge accomplishment and one that doesn’t happen very often.

Among the other scoring records in which he has moved past Michael Jordan, James is the NBA’s No. 1 all-time playoff scorer with 6,163 total points for his career. Jordan held the record since he retired from the Chicago Bulls in 1998. He has 5,987 points in his illustrious career with the Bulls but didn’t make the playoffs at all with the Washington Wizards.

Kobe Bryant is up next on the list as James attempts to move ahead of the Los Angeles Lakers legend who has 941 such games in his career. He can overtake Bryant if he scores at least 20 points for the next 15 games. The team at the end of that set of games is the New Orleans Pelicans.

As for the No. 2 spot, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar holds the fort with 1,122 20-point games and Karl Malone is at No. 1 with 1,134.
