James Harden reacts to LeBron James breaking the NBA’s scoring record

History was made on Tuesday night as Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James broke a record that nobody thought would ever be broken: the all-time scoring record.

James recorded 36 points by the end of the third quarter in Los Angeles’ matchup with the Oklahoma City Thunder which gave him 38,3888 points for his career. That broke the record held by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as James now holds the record.

After James broke the record, athletes went to Twitter to give James his flowers. Philadelphia 76ers star James Harden, who has had plenty of battles with The King in his career, paid his respects to James after setting the record.

Harden is on the way to being in the Hall of Fame himself with everything he has done. This is greatness respecting greatness and whether one hates him or loves him, James deserves all of the respect for what he has accomplished in this game.
