WATCH: Lakers play tribute video for LeBron James after he passes Michael Jordan on all-time scoring list

Toronto Raptors superstar Kawhi Leonard nails nine 3’s in a row!

The 34-year-old star passed Jordan with a layup in the second quarter of the Lakers’ matchup with the Nuggets.

LeBron James moved in front of Michael Jordan and into fourth place on the NBA all-time scoring list Wednesday.

The 34-year-old star passed Jordan with a layup in the second quarter of the Lakers’ matchup with the Nuggets. The Lakers congratulated James and played a tribute video for him at the next timeout.

The star became emotional on Los Angeles’ bench during the video.

Los Angeles, however, received some criticism for the way it handled the celebration.

The 15-time All-Star signed a four-year, $153.3 million contract with Los Angeles this summer and has averaged 27 points per game this season. But, the Lakers have not met expectations as they entered play Wednesday with a 30-34 record.

James and Jordan are widely considered the two best players in NBA history. Jordan won six titles and five MVP awards during his 15 seasons with the Bulls and Wizards.
