Lebron played for the Los Angeles Lakers today against Oklahoma City Thunder, scoring a total of 38,390 points at the conclusion of the game. The power forward got to shoot his 38,388th shot by the third quarter, making his way ahead of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s record of 38,387 points in the totality of his career. Jabbar, who was present at the game, gave his successor a standing ovation.

Prior to the most-anticipated basketball game, Lebron was 36 points shy from the set record. Tickets to today’s game skyrocketed to 40K USD (roughly PHP 2 million), and among the audience who witnessed history being made was Beyoncé‘s husband Jay-Z.

During halftime, it seems that Lebron took inspiration and motivation from his sons, Bronny and Bryce James. He asked them, “Do you want me to go and get it?” “Go ahead,” his firstborn answered. “I’ll get it,” he assured them–and indeed, he did.

The new standings for the top 10 of the NBA’s All-Time scoring list are as follows:

1. Lebron James 38,390 and counting
2. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar 38,387
3. Karl Malone 36,928
4. Kobe Bryant 33,643
5. Michael Jordan 32,292
6. Dirk Nowitzki 31,560
7. Wilt Chamberlain 31,419
8. Shaquille O’Neal 28,596
9. Carmelo Anthony 28,289
10. Moses Malone 27,409

Of course, his stats won’t be final as the legendary basketball player is yet to retire from the league. His next game with the LA Lakers will be against Milwaukee Bucks on Friday, February 10 at 11 am (Philippine time).

Unfortunately, the team lost to OKC rounding up at 133 – 130.
