#SoleWatch: LeBron James Makes History in Air Jordan 3-Inspired LeBron 16s

Although James has played only 47 games for Los Angeles, he has charged up the career scoring chart in that time: He passed Dirk Nowitzki for sixth place in October, and he passed Wilt Chamberlain for fifth place in November. Some days you don´t even think you´re going to make it to the next day because of the way things are going. "Like I wrote on my shoes tonight and you saw, I thank MJ more than he would ever know".

"Hopefully I can inspire the next kid like myself". James wears the same No. 23 worn by Jordan and recalled being 15 when he first met his idol. "You suck.You owe me a bottle of wine".

The reaction seemed fitting for a player who idolized Jordan growing up.

Should his athleticism carry James past those numbers, one can only imagine the kind of chains 2 Chainz will be around to bestow!

In Wednesday's game between the L.A. Lakers and the Denver Nuggets, James scored his 32,293rd point, getting fouled in the act.

The first target for James is Bryant, who collected 33,643 points throughout his storied 20-year career with the Lakers.

According to a report by Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes, the Lakers and LeBron James have agreed to a minutes restriction moving forward. He added a lay-in and jumper to match Jordan early in the second quarter and then broke the record soon after.

"There are certain milestones that it's nice to take a moment and embrace and honour", Lakers coach Luke Walton said before the game.

Los Angeles isn't making the playoffs and playing LeBron heavy minutes is just going to put more miles on a body that's been through quite a lot.

The Lakers and Carmelo Anthony are too sad for each other
Despite James' 17 points, the Lakers trailed powerful Denver 66-49 at halftime, seemingly headed to their fourth straight loss. LeBron hasn't missed the playoffs since the 2004-2005 season, but seems resigned to his fate this year.
