While it was unbelievable to the core for LeBron James, it was pretty emotional too, as he had never envisaged overtaking his idol in pure National Basketball Association points. The Lakers (30-34) have faded ever since James was injured, going 10-20 and falling to the fringe of the playoff race even after his return. James wears the same No. 23 worn by Jordan and recalled being 15 when he first met his idol. "Except for me or him". "He was like lightning in a bottle for me. But Mike had no idea what he was doing for a kid growing up a 45-minute flight from Chicago when he was doing all that work". He trails Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387 career points), Karl Malone (36,928 career points) and Kobe Bryant (33,643 career points). James got emotional on the sideline after passing Jordan, but quickly had to get back to chipping away at a double-digit deficit.
For a kid during LeBron James' childhood, there was no one bigger in the sport than Michael Jordan (maybe there still isn't).
