LeBron had his sons to guide him throughout the game.

LeBron has been in the midst of a nice individual season with the Los Angeles Lakers. While the team has been struggling to string some wins together, James has been playing some great basketball. Overall, he is averaging over 30 points per game, and he is a joy to watch every single night. Additionally, he has been trying to chase down Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's scoring record. This has been a nice side story to follow as it just showcases James' greatness. Beating this record is no easy task, however, James was closer than ever heading into Tuesday night's game against the Thunder.

LeBron needed just 36 points to overtake Kareem. Many felt like it would be broken on Thursday against the Bucks. That said, LeBron knows he needs to have big nights in order to give his team a chance to win. Consequently, it wasn't out of the realm of possibility that he would break the record. As you can see in the video down below, LeBron actually consulted with his sons Bronny and Bryce. He asked them if he should go for it tonight, and they told him yes. Subsequently, James went out there and broke the record.

The stars were out in full swing for this game. Shannon Sharpe, Jay-Z, Denzel Washington, and LeBron's entire family were some of the people at the match. They were all incredibly excited to see James break this record that hadn't been touched in 39 years. Overall, it was a special night for everyone in attendance, and no one will ever forget where they were when this record got broken.

Throughout the game, Bronny and Bryce were filming their dad's every move. Eventually, Bronny was able to capture the moment his father broke the record. Subsequently, he posted the video on social media, and you can see the courtside view, down below. Additionally, after the game, Bronny showed LeBron his clip in the locker room. James was extremely excited to relive it, and it was an amazing moment between father and son. Let us know what you thought about James' record-breaking moment, in the comments below.
