LeBron gets emotional after passing MJ in career points

May JohnsonMar 08, 2019

Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James overtook Michael Jordan's career tally of 32,292 points with his 13th point Wednesday, and the King's latest achievement received some special plaudits from the man he surpassed.

James appeared to weigh in on the accomplishment on Twitter before the game.

LeBron adds that a conversation with the Lakers' coaching staff and upper management about shutting it down may "happen soon".

In a historic moment against the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday night, LeBron finished strong at the rim to notch his 32,284th point on his career.

"You've got to appreciate him", Harris said of James.

Jeremy Corbyn's amendment rejected — BREXIT VOTE
MPs later rejected a Scottish National Party amendment to rule out a no-deal Brexit in any circumstances and at any time by a margin of 288-324.

Five of the top six scorers in National Basketball Association history played for the Lakers, who signed James as a free agent last summer.

Moments later, James passed Jordan with an and-1 layup.

James, 34, entered Wednesday night averaging 27.0 points per game this season, his 15th National Basketball Association campaign. "For a kid from Akron, Ohio, that needed inspiration, needed some type of positive influence, MJ was that guy for me". "It's just insane, to be honest". I watched him from afar, wanted to be like MJ, wanted to shoot fadeaways like MJ, wanted to stick my tongue out on dunks like MJ, wanted to wear my sneakers like MJ.

The 34-year-old James is among the last active players who were old enough to witness Jordan in his prime with the Chicago Bulls. James now trails only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387 points), Karl Malone (36,928) and Kobe Bryant (33,643).

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