LeBron James made history again last night becoming the 4th all-time scorer surpassing his hero Michael Jordan in the process. It was a touching moment for James who wrote a tribute to his hero on his Jordan-inspired Nikes.
LeBron is arguably the best player in the NBA right now, and depending on how you look at it, he’s the GOAT. It’s not everyday you get to pass your child hero in stats, but LeBron did it understanding the importance of thanking Jordan.
“He was everything,” James said. “M.J. was an inspiration.”
“M.J. was the lightning in a bottle for me, because I wanted to be like him.”
Hearing of the news Jordan released a statement through his publicist:
I want to congratulate LeBron on achieving another great milestone during his amazing career,” Jordan said in a statement to The Associated Press on Thursday through his spokeswoman, Estee Portnoy.
LeBron has accomplished quite a bit in his career, and this is just another great milestone.
