LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers reacts to joining Michael Jordan's rare NBA scoring feat.

The Los Angeles Lakers' 116-104 victory over the Brooklyn Nets served as a reminder that LeBron James has never stopped scoring.

On Sunday night, James scored 40 points and made nine of ten three-pointers. According to ESPN's Dave McMenamin, 

LeBron is now one of only two players, along with Michael Jordan, to have multiple 40-point games after the age of 39

The nine threes also tied a career high, prompting the four-time MVP to talk more generally about his adaptability.

"I don't ever have to lean on [three-pointers] because I can do so much — I can score on any level on the floor basically once I cross half court," he told reporters. 

"But being able to have a growth mindset and be able to work on things that the league is changing to, the league is a heavy three-point shooting league.

"I'm not one of those guys that wants to shoot 12-14-15 three-pointers each game. But I want to be respected, and teams must approach me from the outside. 

 That's still something that teams think: 'If we have to give up something, we'd much rather him shoot the ball from the outside.'"

James' 41.6 percent from beyond the arc is on track to set a personal high. Since joining the Lakers, he's made the three-pointer a bigger part of his game.

According to Basketball Reference, his 6.4 attempts and 32.3 percent attempt rate are his most with any single team.
