James passes Ray Allen to climb to No. 21 on the NBA’s all-time scoring list. James’ fast-break layup pushed him past Allen.
I didn’t know until I came to the bench and the guys congratulated me, and I was like, ‘For what? For making a layup?’ They go, ‘You passed Ray Allen.’ That’s one of my best friends. That’s a guy that I competed against, I grew up watching and then to be able to team with him the last two years when I was in Miami, I learned so much from him about work ethic, about being a professional, and it just added on to my game…To know that I passed him tonight, it’s very humbling. I guess I’ve done some pretty good things in this league so far.
