Hey LeBron, I just wanted to congratulate you on your most recent accomplishment passing Michael Jordan. I know he was your hero and how much it means to you to pass someone that you admire your entire life. The same thing happened to me back in 1984 and I was able to pass Wilt's record and someone that I admired when I was a kid so I know what that means to you and it's a very special day so congratulations for that. Everybody is asking me how will I react if he passes my record and one thing I have to say is if and when that happens I will be glad it's somebody that has shown us much class as you have. All the best and enjoy.
