It’s a moment that will be remembered for a long time to come. And it has drawn a lot of big names who were watching from the comfort of their homes or on social media.
Some of the most famous faces in the world congratulated James on this historic achievement, including rappers like Kendrick Lamar and Lil Wayne, as well as pop stars such as Rihanna.

A huge crowd of fans also turned out for the game to watch their favorite athlete become a legend. They cheered and hollered for the star and his team as they fought to make history on their home court in Los Angeles, the first time an American player had broken Abdul-Jabbar’s career scoring record.
James’ 38-point performance against the Oklahoma City Thunder made history as he became the league’s all-time leader in points, passing the former Lakers star, who has held the record for three decades. The crowd erupted with excitement and applause when he scored his last point.
As did NBA commissioner Adam Silver, several NBA players and coaches joined in the chants. James’ family, including his mother and three children, were on hand to celebrate the historic moment.
It’s hard to imagine a more important moment in the league’s history than this, and it’s a perfect example of what makes the NBA so great. It takes years to earn a spot in the game’s history and this is just another chapter of a story that will be told for generations to come.
