LeBron James received congratulations for breaking the NBA’s all-time scoring record from several well-known figures, including JAY-Z, Kendrick Lamar, and Drake.

Tuesday night (February 7) saw King James break Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s nearly 40-year scoring record to become the NBA’s all-time leading scorer, further cementing his place in basketball history.

The 38-year-old scored 38 points in the Los Angeles Lakers 133-130 home loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, bringing his total to 38,390; he has three more than The Captain.

James only needed 36 points to reach the milestone, and he did so by making a fadeaway jump shot at the end of the third quarter.

Did Jay-Z and other celebrities salute the King?

Longtime friend JAY-Z was one of the many famous people present, including LL COOL J, Usher, Floyd Mayweather, Denzel Washington, and Shannon Sharpe. After breaking the scoring record, LBJ was greeted by JAY-Z.

While Abdul-Jabbar and the rest of the sold-out Crypto. com Arena crowd stood and cheered, and an emotional LeBron raised both arms in celebration. Later, to mark the occasion, he delivered a brief speech at the center court.

It means so much to me to be able to be here with someone as legendary and great as Kareem. It’s extremely demeaning,” he said. “I want to thank everyone who has ever participated in this run with me over the past 20+ years. Without all of you, I wouldn’t be who I am today. “.


Others still congratulate Lebron

In a video tribute for NBA on TNT, Kendrick Lamar Lamar, Drake, Snoop DoggRihannaSteph Curry, and others extended their congratulations to the NBA’s new scoring champ.

“To see you with this type of accomplishment, it always confirms: you can be great, no matter where you come from,” Kendrick said.

“From the time you went to the league and you had the doubters and the naysayers and the people that think you wouldn’t take it this far, you proved them wrong, dawg.”

“I am so honored to be here for this historical moment, said RiRi. Being a fan of LeBron James, my favorite part is simply watching you consistently outperform all expectations and skepticism.

“We appreciate you representing us all. Congratulations, King James, and keep aiming for the stars. “.

Drake added some humor to the montage as he congratulated LeBron on his “legendary night” from inside what appeared to be his high school basketball gymnasium in Akron, Ohio, only for the green screen to fall behind. He and his true whereabouts were revealed.

“I lied. I lied to you,” Drizzy admitted sheepishly. “I’m still at the club in Miami, but all the girls say congratulations. Right, girls?” echoed behind him.
