"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". "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".

"Hopefully I can inspire the next kid like myself".

But by many measures, James still falls short of Jordan.

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

"It was like meeting Jesus". "You suck.You owe me a bottle of wine".


"MJ had a lot to do with me making it out (of poverty) as well as my mother".

Addressing James' climb to 32,311 career points, ex-Cleveland Cavaliers running mates Channing Frye and Richard Jefferson playfully sounded off from the visitors' locker room at Barclays Center, prodding the King over his accomplishment. 1 pick now trails only Kobe Bryant (33,643), Karl Malone (36,928) and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387) on the league's all-time scoring list.

James tied Jordan when he drained a 19-foot jumper midway through the second quarter.

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

James might now have the edge in terms of points, but that does not mean he has yet matched Jordan's tallies in terms of field goals or free throws made. Couldn't have in a trillion years thought that would be possible especially knowing where I come from and what I watch him do every single night!
