LeBron passes Jordan: Who's above James in the all-time points list?

LeBron passes Jordan: Who's above James in the all-time points list?

Will Barton scored 23 points, Gary Harris added 19 and the Nuggets snapped their three-game losing streak with a 115-99 victory over Los Angeles on Wednesday night despite James' latest move up the career scoring ranks.

James finished with 31 points against Denver and now stands at 32,311 points for his career. Although the lineup scrapped to keep it close, they never managed to get over the hump, even when James entered the game.

Next on the scoring list is Kobe Bryant, who had 33,643 points in 20 seasons with the Lakers.

"To see where he is now is remarkable", said Denver coach Michael Malone, an assistant coach with the Cavs from 2005-10.

R. Kelly fails to pay child support, headed back to jail
Earlier today , Kelly appeared on "CBS This Morning," marking his first interview since been arrested on charges of sexual abuse. On Wednesday, Gerald Griggs, an attorney representing Jocelyn Savage's family, responded to the interview via Twitter.

While it may have made sense earlier in the season, at this point in time it is quite possible that the addition of Anthony would cause more problems for the Lakers than it would fix. The Lakers already were without Ball, who has been out with a sprained ankle and a bone bruise for six weeks.

The 34-year-old averaged 13.4 points and 5.4 rebounds in his short time in Houston. For Kuzma, it was the start of what could be a week-long absence as he recovers from a sprained ankle.

Although James' numbers remain strong, his first year on the West Coast is shaping up as one of his worst in terms of team success. The Lakers rallied impressively in the second half with a lineup consisting of James and four youngsters, but faded in their fourth straight defeat.

It's a big deal now because the Lakers are in free fall. But I guess when things aren't going well you can kind of continue to make up stories.
