Michael Jordan Congratulates LeBron for Passing Him On All-Time Scoring

Breaking News

The GOAT has spoken … Michael Jordan is giving props to LeBron James after passing him on the NBA’s all-time scoring list … calling it “another great milestone.”

King James jumped over the Jumpman with an easy bucket midway through the 2nd quarter of Wednesday night’s Lakers vs. Nuggets game … and it was an emotional moment.

James only needed 13 points to pass MJ’s 32,292 … but once it finally happened, the Lakers played a tribute video to LBJ … and then came the waterworks.

MJ gave his own tribute to James after the game … saying “I want to congratulate LeBron on achieving another great milestone during his amazing career.”

The love was mutual … as LeBron honored the 6-time champ with a pair of custom LeBron 16s made to look like the Jordan 3s.

Even 2 Chainz — Bron’s new music partner — got in on the fun by gifting him one of his chains from his courtside seat after the game.

Despite the celebration, Bron was brought back down to earth quick … with the Lakers losing the game 115-99 in a blowout loss. 

LeBron commented on the milestone after the game, saying he idolized Michael growing up … “To be linked with the greatest I ever seen play the game, it’s crazy to me.”

“I wouldn’t be here without him.”

Watch your back, Kobe … you’re next (no really, he’s #3 on the list).
