LeBron James writes thank you message to Michael Jordan on shoes

LeBron James writes thank you message to Michael Jordan on shoes

Trailing Michael Jordan by 12 points on the NBA's all-time scoring list entering the Lakers' game against the Denver Nuggets, LeBron James tied his idol at 32,292 career points with a fadeaway in the second quarter.

Sitting courtside with his family including his son, 2 Chainz was ecstatic to watch the magic happen but it's what he did afterward that's got people talking.

Los Angeles (30-34) dropped its third in a row Monday night, putting it five and a half games out of the playoff picture in the Western Conference, but James says he will not sit out as long as he remains healthy.

LeBron James may not have gotten a ring with the Lakers yet but at least he got a chain!

James needed only 13 points heading into Wednesday's game to surpass Jordan (32,292 career points), who played 15 seasons in the National Basketball Association while averaging 30.1 points per game.




Moments later, James passed Jordan with an and-1 layup. "For a kid from Akron, Ohio, that needed inspiration, needed some type of positive influence, MJ was that guy for me. I wanted children to look at me like I looked at him".

With 32,311 points, James now trails only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387), Karl Malone (36,928) and Kobe Bryant (33,643).

Jordan fans love to point out his "six-for-six" record in the NBA Finals, and while LeBron only has three championships, he has nine appearances in the last stage, three more than Michael.

"I knew coming into this year that it would be different", James said after the Lakers' loss to the rival Clippers on Monday night.
