Last night LeBron James passed Michael Jordan to move into 4th on the all-time scoring list. LeBron entered the night needing 13 points to pass Mike so it was basically a foregone conclusion that he was going to achieve that goal.

This morning Michael Jordan put out a statement to congratulate LeBron James and it was basically the most mundane generic statement you could possibly give.
Hornets owner Michael Jordan issues brief statement on LeBron James passing him on the NBA’s all-time scoring list: “I want to congratulate LeBron on achieving another great milestone during his amazing career.”

Who knows how true it? But Jordan always said stats never drove him:
Michael Jordan says: "Stats that matter to me is games that we win and rings that you collect."
– If i'd play for the stats i'd never retire in 1993? or i'd still be chasing Kareem A. Jabbar's scoring lead. That doesn't drive me. It's all about winning championships and winning. pic.twitter.com/pXXfpHKBBe
