LeBron James passed Michael Jordan for fourth on the NBA’s all-time scoring list on Wednesday night in Los Angeles with an and-1 layup in the second quarter against the Nuggets.
The Lakers, however, didn’t fare well as a team as they fell 115-99 to Denver as a late comeback fell apart and their woes as a team continued — with Rajon Rondo curiously sitting courtside rather than on the bench as the game ended. Still, it was a special and emotional night for LeBron, who had special Air Jordan 3 inspired LeBron 16s inscribed with “Thank you MJ” on them for the occasion.
Afterwards, LeBron caught up with 2 Chainz who was sitting courtside by the Lakers bench (and at the end was closer to the Lakers bench than Rondo). LeBron, of course, A&R’d 2 Chainz’s latest album, Rap Or Go To The League, and to celebrate James’ accomplishment 2 Chainz gifted the King one of the diamond chains off his neck.
