The Los Angeles Lakers stopped their five-game losing streak last night when they beat the Chicago Bulls 123-107 behind LeBron James' 36 points, 10 rebounds, four assists, and two steals.

With his performance, James was able to surpass Laker legend Kobe Bryant an all-time scoring record.

LeBron recently passed Michael Jordan for the fourth spot in the all-time scoring list, but that only counts points scored during the regular season.

This one includes points scored in regular season and playoffs.

The four-time MVP now has 39,288 career points. His next target on the list will be Hall of Famer Karl Malone, who has scored 41,689 total career points.

The all-time leader for total points scored is Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who has 44,749.

However, all of LeBron's achievements this season seem to be underappreciated by Laker fans, as the team has struggled for the majority of the season under his leadership. The purple and gold has a win-loss record of 31-36 and they will most likely miss the playoffs for the second straight year.

For a lot of Laker fans, numbers don't matter if there's no title to back it up. The city of Los Angeles has been spoiled with championships, to the point that it is almost imperative for the franchise to build a team that can contend every year. So far, the Lakers haven't been able to do that, even with James on the line-up.

LeBron has three years left in his contract to turn the Lakers' fortunes around. There will be higher expectations for him next season.
