LeBron James achieved one of the biggest milestones of his 14-year career on Thursday night against the Boston Celtics during game five. That milestone was moving past Michael Jordan for first place on the NBA playoffs all-time scoring list. LeBron had already moved past Shaquille O'Neal, Kobe Bryant and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar recently on the list, but passing the man recognized worldwide as the greatest basketball player of all time is the biggest accomplishment of them all.

magic johnson played in the NBA from 1979-1991 and in 1996, winning five NBA championships, three NBA Finals MVP's and three regular season MVP awards during that span.

This great career has Magic Johnson regarded as one of, if not the greatest, point guard of all time, and justifiably so. The legendary point guard recently commented about LeBron James and his accomplishment, passing "His Airness."

Magic Johnson tweets about LeBron's milestone

During the third quarter of the Cleveland Cavaliers vs Boston Celtics game at the TD Garden, LeBron James scored his 29th point with a three pointer and moved past MJ for the top spot on the postseason scoring list. Magic Johnson was watching from home, and made sure to speak up about it. Johnson took to Twitter to congratulate King James.

This is a great sign of respect from one of the all time greats to another.

It's awesome to see a legendary player like Earvin Johnson showing his respect to "The Chosen One," for his magnificent accomplishment.

The question now stands, will anyone catch the King on this scoring list? It may be hard for anyone to, because LBJ will keep adding to his points total.

LeBron is chasing Magic

While Michael Jordan previously held the record for most playoff points before LeBron James passed him, the same goes for Magic Johnson in terms of passing the ball. Johnson is the NBA playoffs all-time leader in assists with 2,346, sitting in front of second placed John Stockton (1,839) and third placed LeBron James who has 1,439 assists.

King James currently needs 908 more assists to move up to the top of the postseason assists list, moving past Magic Johnson. It will likely take LeBron quite a few more playoff runs if he is able to do it, but if he does he will break playoff history. Being the only player in NBA history to be ranked number one in scoring and assists, which would be truly incredible. And not only that, he will almost definitely be number one in postseason steals also, sitting just 13 takeaways behind first placed Scottie Pippen right now.
