That jibed with comments James made in December, when he said of Jordan, "He was much more of a scorer", adding, "You recognize the dominance that someone had. but there's no similarities in our game, at all".
James will make his seventh straight trip to the Finals.
Before the game was over, James had broken the NBA's all-time playoff scoring list - racking up a career postseason total of 5,995 points and bumping His Airness Michael Jordan down to No. 2.
The Celtics saw a different team emerge from the locker room in the third quarter, however, and the Wine and Gold - namely Kyrie Irving - were all business over the final 24 minutes.
"He basically was just waiting for an opportunity to be able to blossom", James said. "I don't have to score the ball to make an impact in the basketball game".
Turning Point-After a flat first half, once momentum started swinging Cleveland's way in the second half of Game 4, the Celtics simply had no answer. The four-time All-Star - who was 10-of-12 from the field in the second half - added four assists and three boards in the win.
James was mobbed by teammates, embracing him and shouting in his ear, in awe of his accomplishment.
But the big question remains: Who is the greatest? Golden State enters the title series with a ideal 12-0 playoff record.

"It's one of those things I have no control over, it is what it is", said Brown, filling in for the ailing Steve Kerr. Hammond replaces Rob Hennigan, who was sacked last month after the Magic failed to make the playoffs during his five-year tenure. Coach Brad Stevens said no decision had been made yet on whether Thomas would undergo an operation but he reiterated that he is out for the remainder of the playoffs. "We can't go back to Boston tied 2-2".
As the Cavs' stars did throughout the East finals, they worked together in fire-breathing tandem Thursday.
James scored just 11 points on 4-of-13 shooting, including an 0-for-4 showing from three-point range, in the Cavaliers' loss to the Celtics, their only setback in 11 outings during the first three rounds of the 2017 NBA Playoffs and first since Game 4 of the 2016 NBA Finals.
Jordan scored 5,987 in his postseason career in 179 games from 1985-2003.
While Irving and James were scoring, Kevin Love dominated the glass with 17 rebounds to go with 17 points.
"We've been in that position before", Love said. "I know toward the end of the season there were some rough patches". The Warriors were already stacked with the league's best sharpshooters before Durant's arrival and Golden State got richer with one of among the league's best perimeter players.
This was yet another in a long line of impressive moments.
The team, however, all wanted to take a step back to shove James forward.
