James passes Kareem in scoring

Los Angeles Lakers great Abdul-Jabbar scored 5,762 points in 237 career playoff games.

A three-pointer with eight minutes, 41 seconds remaining in the third quarter against the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday moved James past Abdul-Jabbar and only Michael Jordan has more with 5,987 points in 179 games.

Wednesday was the 205th playoff game for James, who entered the night 24 points behind Abdul-Jabbar.

LeBron shuts down Jordan comparisons for good

Ever since James was dunking on fellow teenagers, pundits have been linking the superstar to Jordan, but it may not be an apt comparison after all.

James, speaking ahead of Thursday's game against the Boston Celtics, poured water on the hype linking him to the great Bulls legend who won six NBA championships.

"No, [Jordan] was much more of a scorer, at that point did a lot of post work, but our games are just different," James said via Cavs.com .

The Cleveland Cavaliers won the NBA Finals, defeating the Golden State Warriors 93-89 in Sunday's deciding Game 7.

This is the first major sports championship that a Cleveland team has won since 1964.

LeBron James, Stephen Curry honour boxing legend during NBA Finals series

Ali, who died Saturday (AEST) at age 74, was recalled for his sacrifices and struggles for social justice, as well as his boxing career, by the two giants of the NBA.

The late boxer lost three prime years of his career for his stand against fighting in the Vietnam War before the US Supreme Court vindicated him in 1971.

"When an icon like Muhammad Ali passes away, it's just very emotional," James said.

"It's also gratifying to know that guy, one man, will sacrifice so much of his life knowing it will better the next generation of men and women after him."

LeBron James just did it

It is believed to be the first lifetime deal in the shoe and apparel company's 44-year history, although it's assumed that Michael Jordan has at least a de facto agreement for life.

A source close to the deal told ESPN that James' contract easily surpasses the 10-year, $450 million deal Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant signed with Nike last year.
