The NBA superstar surpassed the mark on Tuesday (Nov. 18), during the Cleveland Cavaliers' 104-99 loss to the Detroit Pistons, finishing with 30 points.
"Obviously, every single day, that's what we all represent," James said after the game. "We all represent The Logo. You know, everyone -- media, myself, my teammates, organization, fans -- we all represent The Logo.
"To be able to pass a legend like himself, it's an honor, an honor for sure. I know how much he did for the game, what he meant to the game. You know, I had an opportunity to read his book. I had an opportunity to actually talk to him a few times. ... It's pretty cool."
West played 932 games over 14 seasons to reach his career point total, while James reached the mark in his 922nd game and as a 13-year veteran.
Next on the list for James is Indiana Pacers great Reggie Miller, who sits at No. 18 with 25,279 points.
