Lakers legend Magic Johnson recorded a special message to LeBron James after he became the NBA all-time leading scorer by passing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

“I want to congratulate LeBorn James on becoming NBA all-time leading scorer. What a feat,” Johnson said. “I never thought that Kareem’s scoring record would be broken by anybody but that says how special you are and what you’ve done for the game of basketball worldwide. You changed the game of basketball.

“From the bottom of my heart I just want to say thank you, but also it means even more to myself and to all fans because you’re wearing that purple and gold and broke it as a Laker. Congratulations.”
