The post LeBron James Gifted a Diamond Chain by 2 Chainz After Passing Michael Jordan on All-Time Scoring List appeared first on The Blast.

And if James is going to add to that total this season, he and his Lakers will need to get things going in the other direction in a hurry with the team at 30-35 and 6 1/2 games out of a playoff spot. I wanted kids to look up to me at some point like MJ and it's just insane, to be honest.

"I always wanted to be like Michael Jordan", he admitted.

Anytime you are able to surpass your idol it is a special moment and James even paid tribute to Jordan with a message on his shoes. "For a kid from Akron, Ohio, that needed inspiration, needed some type of positive influence, MJ was that guy for me. I watched him from afar, wanted to be like MJ", James said. "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".

Jordan and James are often compared as the best players in National Basketball Association history.

Here are the pick of the statistics from one of the most humiliating nights in Real Madrid's recent history. The treatment of Gareth Bale by Real Madrid fans is "nothing short of a disgrace", according to his agent.

The next target for James would be retired Lakers star guard Kobe Bryant, who is third on the National Basketball Association career list with 33,643 points.

The Lakers gave props to LeBron on the big board.

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

"I knew coming into this year that it would be different", James said after the Lakers' loss to the rival Clippers on Monday night.
