Sitting courtside with his family including his son, 2 Chainz was ecstatic to watch the magic happen but it's what he did afterward that's got people talking.

James appeared to weigh in on the accomplishment on Twitter before the game.

As a basketball player who idolized 23 growing up - even donning his number upon entering the league - the achievement was an emotional one for James, who took a moment on the bench to let it all sink in. Kobe Bryant scored 33,643 points over his 20-year career, leaving James 1,332 points behind. He made us look like really good coaches in Cleveland. These men and women work day in and day out to be able to have one shot at achieving a successful career, and will stop at nothing to be the best and crush their competition.

LeBron James #23 of the Los Angeles Lakers reacts during the first half against the New Orleans Pelicans at Staples Center on February 27, 2019 in Los Angeles, California. Although James has only played 47 games for Los Angeles, he has charged up the career scoring chart in that time: He passed Dirk Nowitzki for sixth place in October, and he passed Wilt Chamberlain for fifth in November.

After eight straight trips to the NBA Finals, the 34-year-old has played by far the most minutes of any player in the NBA since 2010. There are three back-to-back games remaining on the Lakers schedule, so it's likely James will miss at least three more games and possibly more once they are officially eliminated from playoff contention.

With last night's loss against the Nuggets, the Lakers are now completely out of playoff contention. "You take the challenge and you continue to stay positive, no matter what's going on".
