James passed sports legend Michael Jordan in all-time scoring during the Lakers game against the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday night and 2 Chainz was courtside as the Staples Center crowd saluted their hero.
James scored 31 points and surpassed Michael Jordan's 32,292 career points on a driving layup during the second quarter. James is now fourth on the list of points leaders, behind only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Karl Malone and Kobe Bryant.
The moment itself of James passing Jordan occurred in the second quarter as James caught a pass from Rajon Rondo and immediately attacked the basket, hitting a runner while drawing a foul on Nuggets forward Torrey Craig.
LeBron James was previously asked if he would consider resting or limiting his minutes once the Lakers were out of the playoff race.
Five of the top six scorers in National Basketball Association history played for the Lakers, who signed James as a free agent last summer.

Kelly girlfriends come out swinging for their man
Clary's parents denied wanting money from Kelly a statement released on Wednesday. "It was not what I wanted to do". And y'all trying to kill me? The parents of both women claim that their daughters have been brainwashed by Kelly.
"I wear the number because of Mike".
"A lot of stuff that I've done in my career, this ranks right up at the top (with) winning a championship", James said.
On Thursday, Rondo took to Instagram to fire back at his critics and switch the attention back to James' historic accomplishment. "We're witnessing greatness. It's an honor".
Jordan played 15 NBA seasons and was a five-time NBA Most Valuable Player who won six NBA crowns in the 1990s with the Bulls.
While Jordan went 6-0 in the finals, James is only 3-6 but has reached the past eight NBA Finals, four each with Miami and Cleveland before joining the Lakers last July. It was an encouraging showing for most of the game despite the Nuggets blowing their second big lead in three games.
