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.
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.
Adding a touch of Lakers' colors, were the eye-catching gold laces, purple on the midsole and James' Dunkman logo embroidered on the tongue. With the basket LeBron James passes Michael Jordan for fourth all time National Basketball Association scoring. As soon as LeBron passed Michael Jordan's record, he took a moment with just himself on the bench, breaking into tears and soaking in all the praise.

I'd be 'very, very disappointed' if North Korea's rebuilding rocket site

The four-time NBA MVP surpassed Jordan for career points as he tallied 31 for the Lakers in their loss to the Nuggets.
James began the night averaging 27.0 points, 8.7 rebounds and 8.0 assists while hitting 51 per cent of his shots and playing 35.7 minutes per game for the Lakers. Bryant has five while Jordan and Abdul-Jabbar each have six. 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's personal streak of eight consecutive NBA Finals appearances is in jeopardy, in addition to his run of 13 straight postseason appearances. The Lakers aren't going to the playoffs this season and might as well start thinking about next season.
