LeBron James, assisting on a 3-pointer by Anthony Davis, has officially become the sixth player with the most assists in league history surpassing Magic Johnson. After the great victory of the Lakers at the Bucks' home, LeBron still has Mark Jackson ahead of him, currently in fourth place in the all-time standings with 10,334 assists.
The 37-year-old could finish this season first in history in points scored, surpassing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and fourth in history in assists, surpassing Mark Jackson and Steve Nash. LeBron, about the record and about Magic, told: "Obviously it means a lot to me to be in the same conversation as the greats of this game, players who were my own idols or who I later saw on video.
The way Magic approached games was exciting, his teammates loved playing with him both for the joy he played with and for his ability to pass the ball. He always wanted to see his teammates play well and I always admired that aspect of him.
Breaking his record with the shirt of the Lakers is even more incredible, we all know what the Magic name means to the franchise. I'm truly honored to be in the same conversation as a player like him."
LeBron and the issue with kyrie Irving
Kyrie Ivring has been out for four games.
LeBron James talked about via social media on the issue, underlining from his point of view how excessive the requests and positions taken towards him by people who in reality do not know him at all. LeBron explained: "I have always said that I do not believe in sharing false information is harmful and I will continue to be like that, but Kyrie apologized and he should be on the pitch playing.
That's what I think. It's that simple. You have to help him learn, but it should be on court. What he was asked to do. I think it's excessive to go back to the team. He's not the person he's portrayed in these days."
