There is a debate between Michael Jordan and LeBron James on who is the best player of all-time. On Thursday night, James surpassed Jordan in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Boston Celtics.

James is now the most prolific scorer in NBA history during the postseason. He clinched the record with a three-pointer in the third quarter in his 11-year playoff career.

That helped James surpass Jordan’s long-time record of 5,989 points. And the Cavaliers superstar is not done, as now he could put the record out of reach.

“I’ve always told you guys, any time I’m linked to any of the greats and even the greatest in Mike, it’s an honor,” James said prior to the game. “It’s a tribute to what I’ve been able to do with this game.”

James had 35 points in the Cavaliers 135-102 win in Game 5 over the Celtics. Cleveland won the series 4-1 to advance to their third straight NBA Finals.

On Thursday night, June 1st, the Cavaliers will begin The Finals against the Golden State Warriors.

“I wear the number because of Mike,” said James said after the game. “I think I fell in love with the game because of Mike, just because of what he was able to accomplish. When you’re watching Michael Jordan it’s almost like a god. So I didn’t think I could be Mike.”
