LeBron James rewrote the record books Tuesday night, climbing to the summit of the NBA’s all-time scoring list, passing Kareem-Abdul-Jabbar’s longstanding record.
LeBron’s history-making bucket came in the third quarter against the Oklahoma City Thunder, with a fadeaway over Kenrich Williams.
It was a night of celebration at Crypto.com Arena, with LeBron’s family and friends in attendance for the historic occasion, along with a host of celebrities courtside taking in the action. In addition to Abdul-Jabbar, the stars came out to show their support. Magic Johnson, Denzel Washington, Dwyane Wade, Jay-Z, and many more were in the building for The King’s historic night.
With LeBron writing a new chapter in NBA history, take a look at how his historic night unfolded.
