LeBron James is on the brink of passing Michael Jordan as the best of all-time. In one category, at least. James is on the verge of becoming the NBA’s all-time leading playoff scorer. Jordan has 5,987 career postseason points, and James could reach that mark on Thursday night, as he needs just 27 more to match that.
It’s coming, and reporters asked James on Thursday morning what matching and passing Jordan would mean to him. Though at times James has been playful about his dominance, Thursday’s press conference took on a more deferential tone.
