LeBron James Luke Walton Lakers

James scored his 13th, 14th and 15th points against the Denver Nuggets on a drive to the basket, collecting an and-1.

The Los Angeles Lakers star contributed 31 points during a 115-99 loss against the Denver Nuggets to nudge ahead of the Chicago Bulls great (32,292), moving up to 32,311.

His teammates congratulated him, a tribute video played, and at the next timeout, James sat alone on the bench with his face buried in a towel. Passing Jordan, however, was extra special for James who has been open about idolizing Jordan as he was growing up.

"I don't know, man, a lot of the stuff I've done in my career, this ranks right at the top", the 34-year-old veteran said after the game.

"For a kid from Akron, Ohio that needed inspiration and some type of positive influence, MJ was that guy for me".

"I wanted to shoot on the half-turn like him, to stick out my tongue while pounding my chest like him".
