LeBron James had the support of his wife and their three kids as he made history last night by becoming the NBA’s all-time leading scorer. The title was previously held by Kareem Abdul Jabbar, whose record had stood since April 5, 1984.


“A record that has stood for nearly 40 years,” NBA commissioner Adam Silver said. “Many people thought it would never be broken. LeBron, you are the NBA’s all-time scoring leader. Congratulations.”

Lakers great Magic Johnson added, “I never thought that Kareem’s scoring record would be broken by anybody,”  “It means even more to myself that you’re wearing that purple and gold, and broke it as a Laker.”

After breaking Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s NBA scoring record, Lebron James was given a moment during the game against Oklahoma City Thunder to address the crowd. He began by thanking his fans, Kareem, and then his wife Savannah James and their children- Bronny, Bryce and Zhuri.

He said, “I just wanna say thank you to the Laker faithful. You guys are one of a kind. To be able to be in the presence of such a legend as great as Kareem, it means so much to me. It’s very humbling,” James said. “Please give a standing ovation to the captain, please … To my beautiful wife, my daughter, my two boys, my friends … man, everybody that’s ever been a part of this run with me the last 20 years — 20-plus years — I just wanna say I thank you so much ’cause I wouldn’t be me without y’all.”

“And to the NBA, to Adam Silver, to the late-great David Stern, I thank you guys so much for allowing me to be a part of something I’ve always dreamed about. And I would never, ever in a million years dreamt this even better than what it is tonight.”

Congratulations to the Lakers Star!
