It seems that the Los Angeles Lakers believe that LeBron James is the best basketball player in history.

After James hit the game-winning basket in a 135-133 overtime victory Tuesday over the Utah Jazz, reporters surrounded by James were constantly interrupted by the goat noises made by his teammates.

«Gotta stay focused. I’m locked in, dog,» he said of the animal sounds.

James missed a layup at the regulation buzzer that sent the game into overtime, but made up for it by scoring the game-winner with 27 seconds left in overtime to clinch the win.

Of course, GOAT has been a household acronym standing for Greatest Of All Time.

That title undoubtedly belonged to Michael Jordan, and to many, that is still the case.

But with James’ illustrious career, which includes becoming the NBA’s all-time points leader earlier this season, there are many who think he has surpassed the top spot.

Orlando Magic rookie Paolo Banchero joined LeBron James and Kareem Abul-Jabbar as the only No. 1 draft picks to finish an NBA debut with 25 points, five rebounds and five assists.

James, at 38, scored 37 points in the win, nine of them in overtime, as the Lakers continue their hot streak. Since Feb. 11, Los Angeles is 16-7 and has won four in a row.

On that date, they were 25-31 and out of a playoff spot. Now, they’re tied for the sixth seed, just on the brink of tournament entry, at 41-38.

They’re teamed up with their arena rivals, the Clippers, who they play Wednesday night at 10 p.m.

James is averaging 28.9 points, 8.4 rebounds and 6.8 rebounds this season, the 20th of his career.
