LeBron James breaks Michael Jordan's record, hits double figures in 867 straight

LeBron James surpassed Michael Jordan in one measure of scoring consistency Friday night as the Cleveland Cavaliers took on the New Orleans Pelicans.

James has scored at least 10 points in every regular-season game since January 5, 2007, when he scored eight points in a game against the Milwaukee Bucks. Jordan's streak lasted from March 22, 1986, when he scored eight points for the Chicago Bulls in a loss to the Cavs, until December 27, 2001, when he scored six points as a 38-year-old for the Washington Wizards in a game against the Indiana Pacers.

James had tied the mark two nights earlier against the team Jordan owns - the Charlotte Hornets.

He explained, "It is not like I set out to say I want to be the number in scoring 10-plus points double digits for consecutive games or whatever, and what-not but any time a statistical category comes up and I am able to accomplish something like that, it is pretty incredible". It's just another feat for me to be appreciative and humbled by what I've been able to do.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar ranks third all-time with a 787-game streak than ran from December 1977 to December 1987. And then I'm just going out and playing for the joy of the game.

A federal judge on Friday refused a request by the manufacturer of the popular NBA 2K video-game series to dismiss a suit on its depiction from the match of antiques belonging to LeBron James along with also other National Basketball Association stars. "It means a lot for me, and it means more to the youth that kind of needs hope", added James.

James came into Wednesday's game ranked No. 7 on the all-time scoring list with 30,814 points, needing 1,479 points to pass Jordan at No. 4 (32,292).

For James though, he is simply reminded of how far he has come every time he gets mentioned among the sport's greatest ever players.

Prior to the game, Cleveland's acting head coach Larry Drew called it a "phenomenal" feat. "He certainly, he's more than just a special player". "We did a great job", he said.

"I wasn't supposed to be here", the six-foot-one, 184-pound Walker told the crowd moments after the game ended. "It's like watching Michael Jackson on tour".
