The Cleveland Cavaliers are off to a slow start so far in the season, but their biggest star doesn't seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Even in his 15th season in the league, LeBron James continues to amaze every basketball fan in the world. Ever since he entered the league back in 2003 as an 18-year-old, James has been nothing short of spectacular. But to see how well he still plays today, at the age of 32, is beyond impressive. Throughout the first 11 games of this season, LeBron is averaging 28.9 points, 7.3 rebounds, 9.1 assists and 1.7 steals per game while shooting nearly 60 percent from the field.


James ties Jordan's record against the Bucks

On Tuesday night, the Cleveland Cavaliers hosted the Milwaukee Bucks at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. It was a big game for both sides, as the Bucks are seen as one of the biggest rivals to the Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference. Led by LeBron James, the Cavs ended up winning the game 124-119. The 32-year-old LeBron finished the game with 30 points, eight rebounds, nine assists, and three steals. It was another stellar performance by James, but it was something else that he accomplished on Tuesday that was also pretty impressive. Tuesday night's game against the Bucks was the 1,072nd career NBA game for LeBron James as he tied Michael Jordan at the 82nd spot on the All-time total games played list.

James will have the opportunity to surpass Jordan on this list on Thursday night, as the Cavs face the Houston Rockets.

Surely, this record means a lot to LeBron James, considering Jordan was his idol growing up.

LeBron never shied away from saying how much Jordan meant to him and how much he admires him to this day. Michael Jordan is widely considered to be the best basketball player of all time, and to be able to surpass him at anything is surely a great honor.

Who's better, LeBron or Michael?

When it comes to NBA titles, LeBron James still has a lot of catching up to do since Michael Jordan won six NBA championships, while LeBron has three.

But when it comes to other statistical categories, a valid argument could be made that LeBron James is a better player than Michael Jordan. According to basketball-reference, throughout the 1072 games of their respective careers, LeBron James won 716 games while Jordan won 706. Jordan has the advantage in total points scored with 32,292 points, while James scored 29,105 points. LeBron has more total rebounds and assists, but let us also not forget one more important thing. The way his body and his performances looks right now, LeBron James still has at least three years of great basketball in front him. This means that when it's all said and done, LeBron James will have the advantage over Michael Jordan in just about every statistical category except one - titles won.
