Lakers forward LeBron James is now the NBA’s all-time scoring record-holder, after hitting 36 points versus the Oklahoma City Thunder.

LeBron needed only 36 points on the night, after breaking the 38k barrier only 3 weeks prior, and it took him 26 minutes on the night to surpass Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who was courtside and watching.

“A record which has stood for almost 40 years, and no one thought will be broken, has now been broken. LeBron, you are now the NBA’s all-time scoring leader,” Adam Silver said on the court some five minutes after LeBron toppled 38,378.

With a fadeaway, the 38-year-old reached 38,388, after receiving from Russel Westbrook.
