LeBron James grew up idolizing Michael Jordan. The Los Angeles Lakers star forward first met the Chicago Bulls legend when he was 16 years old. He said it was like meeting God.
Tonight, James should pass his idol on the NBA’s all-time scoring list, as he needs 13 to pass Jordan for fourth place.
LeBron is excited.
“Can’t even front. This is going to be UNREAL!! Wow man,” he tweeted prior to tipoff.
The Lakers star has some special shoes for tonight’s game, too.
