BOSTON, MA (WOIO) -

At age 32, LeBron James has passed Michael Jordan's all-time career playoff point total of 5,987 points.

He did so during Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals in Boston.

James says it's a tribute to be mentioned alongside the best scorers in the NBA, but what gets him excited is seeing his individual teammates be successful.

James says Jordan chase is about motivation, not greatness

"Anytime I'm linked to any of the Greats, even The Greatest, Mike, it's just an honor. I'm not a scorer, I don't want to be labeled as a scorer. I can put the ball in the hoop, I'm a playmaker," said James. "I'm a guy who always got happy and excited seeing my team's success, seeing my [individual] teammates be successful."
