Another night, another milestone for Ohio’s very own LeBron James. The King passed the 30,000 career points milestone on Tuesday night (Jan. 23) against the San Antonio Spurs, making him the youngest player to cross the threshold.
James’ accomplishment prompted responses from peers across all platforms. On the music front, it was October’s Very Own head man
Drake who sang praise of the King. Drizzy, who is basically Bron’s musical counterpart, hit Twitter to congratulate James in a video via LeBron’s video company, Uninterrupted.
“Seems like every time we look up, you’re setting another milestone or breaking another record and I always tell you that you’re one of the most inspirational people in my life,” Drake said. “Every time you do something like this I always try to get in the studio and make the song that would go with the moment.”
The OVO rapper then pulled out the most expensive bottle of wine he could find, a 1961 Petrus (around $6,000-$25,000), then promptly dropped it on the floor. Despite the disappointment of smashing the grapes, Drake said he was, “excited to go to work tonight.”
Other celebs also sang their praise of James’ noteworthy accomplishment (he’s the 7th player to reach that scoring plateau), including Diddy , Jay-Z , Nas , Kevin Hart, Jamie Foxx, and Arnold Schwarzenegger, who all hit The Uninterrupted to shout out the king.
Drake and LeBron have history together as well, the two came together to executive produce The Carter Effect , a 2017 documentary highlighting the NBA career of the high-flying Vince Carter.
