LeBron James writes thank you message to Michael Jordan on shoes

Will Barton scored 23 points, Gary Harris added 19 and the Nuggets snapped their three-game losing streak with a 115-99 victory over Los Angeles on Wednesday night despite James' latest move up the career scoring ranks.

During the next timeout, James went to the bench and buried his head in a towel, appearing to cry while a video tribute played on the scoreboard and he reflected upon the achievement of surpassing the icon he emulated. Rather fittingly, James achieved the feat in a LeBron 16 PE inspired by one of MJ's most popular signature models, the Air Jordan 3. "I didn´t want to show what was going on behind that towel".

"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. I wanted children to look at me like I looked at him". "Just in a sense of some days when you don't think you're going to make it to the next day where I grew up just because of everything that's going on".

James hit the free throw to finish the three-point play and ended his night with 31 points.

Next up for LeBron on the list is trying to catch Kobe Bryant.

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

"I knew coming into this year that it would be different", James said after the Lakers' loss to the rival Clippers on Monday night. Karl Malone is second with 36,928, and former Lakers great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is No. 1 with 38,387.
