When LeBron James hit the driving layup that pushed him past Michael Jordan into fourth place on the NBA's career scoring list, even the Denver Nuggets paused to appreciate their opponent's big moment.
Sitting courtside with his family including his son, 2 Chainz was ecstatic to watch the magic happen but it's what he did afterward that's got people talking.
While the Lakers aired a tribute video during the ensuing timeout, James covered his face with a towel, apparently crying under it.
Assuming he maintains his point production, LeBron James can become the NBA's new all-time scoring leader in the next 3 or 4 years. Passing Jordan, however, was extra special for James who has been open about idolizing Jordan as he was growing up.

James, a four-time MVP, is averaging 27.1 points, 8.6 rebounds and 8.0 assists per game in his first season in Los Angeles. Bryant has five while Jordan and Abdul-Jabbar each have six.

James's personal streak of eight consecutive NBA Finals appearances is in jeopardy, in addition to his run of 13 straight postseason appearances. "You take the challenge and you continue to stay positive, no matter what's going on".
