The Lakers forward, 38, needed 36 points to break the scoring record against Oklahoma City, and he finished with 38 points in a 133-130 loss.


‘I know I can play a couple more years, the way I’m feeling, the way my body’s been reacting to me throughout this course of the season, I know I can play a couple more years,’ James said of his milestone.

‘I feel like I can go out there and help win multiple championships or win a championship for any group of guys, for any franchise, so that’s my mindset.’

‘It’s so surreal because it’s something I never set out to do,’ he continued.


James entered the game against Oklahoma City needing 36 points to break Abdul-1989 Jabbar’s record of 38,387. With 10.9 seconds left in the third quarter, he broke the record with a trademark fadeaway jumper.


In a series of video messages, Rihanna, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, and basketball legends Stephen Curry and Shaquille O’Neal congratulated James on his achievement.
