Current and former National Basketball Association stars, celebrities and members of the media took to social media Wednesday night to congratulate LeBron James on becoming fourth on the NBA's all-time scoring list, as he surpassed his idol, Michael Jordan.

Los Angeles Lakers' superstar LeBron James made another head-scratching play late in his team's blowout loss to the Denver Nuggets.

James finished with 31 points against Denver and now stands at 32,311 points for his career.

He had anticipated the achievement even before the game, tweeting that it will be "unreal". James now trails only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387 points), Karl Malone (36,928) and Kobe Bryant (33,643). However, he is unlikely to be above him for much longer, and James is poised to surpass him on the points list next season.

Although Lance Stephenson returned from a sprained toe that forced him to miss three games, the Lakers remained without Lonzo Ball, Tyson Chandler, Brandon Ingram and Kyle Kuzma.

James began the night averaging 27.0 points, 8.7 rebounds and 8.0 assists while hitting 51 percent of his shots and playing 35.7 minutes per game for the Lakers.

He reportedly spoke with team president Magic Johnson and general manager Rob Pelinka about the incident after the game.

The Lakers had been considering signing the 34-year-old Anthony, but four losses in the past five games have pushed them to 10th place in the Western Conference, 4.5 games behind San Antonio for the final playoff spot with 19 to play.
