James received a congratulatory message from Bryant on Friday after he surpassed him for the No. 3 spot on the NBA’s all-time scoring list. Bryant, who recently retired, finished his career with 33,644 points.

“Continuing to move the game forward @KingJames,” Bryant tweeted. Much respect my brother #33644.”

Since his passing, Bryant’s final tweet sent to James has received an outpouring of love from fans around the world.

After he surpassed Bryant’s record, James reflected on the first time they both met.

“Just admiring him for so many years and seeing him from afar, and then being able to be in practices with him, and me watching and learning — it’s just too much,” James said Saturday. “The story is just too much. It doesn’t make sense.

“And just to make a long story short, now I’m here in a Lakers uniform in Philadelphia, where he’s from, where the first time I ever met him he gave me his shoes, it’s just surreal,” he added.

Both Bryant and his 13- year-old daughter Gianna Maria Onore Bryant were killed Sunday morning in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California, which left nine people dead.

TMZ reported that Bryant “was known for commuting from Newport Beach, CA to the STAPLES Center in DTLA in his Sikorsky S-76 chopper. Bryant is survived by his wife Vanessa, and three other daughters — Natalia, Bianca, and their newborn Capri.
