After tying Michael Jordan for most consecutive double-digit scoring games this week, LeBron James surpassed the G.O.A.T. on Friday night (March 30). The historic bucket to accomplish the feat was scored in the sixth minute of the first quarter in the Cavaliers' game against the New Orleans Pelicans.

On Saturday, James wrote on Instagram that he is "humbled and grateful to be linked with the greats".

"I don't know. It's not like I set out to say I wanna become No. 1 in scoring 10-plus points, double digits for consecutive games or whatever and whatnot", he said.

James last failed to score 10 points in the playoffs on May 28, 2014, in the Eastern Conference finals against in when he scored seven for the Miami Heat. "But any time a statistical category comes up and I'm able to accomplish something like that, I mean it's pretty incredible".

A federal judge on Friday refused a request by the manufacturer of the popular NBA 2K video-game series to dismiss a suit on its depiction from the match of antiques belonging to LeBron James along with also other National Basketball Association stars.

"To all my teammates over the 866 games, my coaches, everybody - they've given me the opportunity to do that", James said.

The double-digit scoring streak has been going since January 5, 2007, the last time James didn't score at least 10 points in a game. James has been particularly strong as of late, having stepped up his play following the Cavaliers' busy trade deadline day, which basically reshaped their entire roster.

Swain said that before deciding whether Take-Two committed copyright infringement, she wanted to know how the "average lay observer" would see the tattoos while playing the game, and how prominent the tattoos actually were. Among current players, Houston's James Harden has done it in 257 games - 410 behind James.

"They're all great achievements in their own right", he said. That's just production for a ball club.
