The two men were attending Tuesday night’s legendary game where Lebron James broke the all-time NBA scoring record, surpassing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. James became the leading scorer in NBA history after he scored his 38,388th point. The game came to a 10-minute halt as family, friends, and fans celebrated his latest achievement inside of the arena. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who watched the game from a baseline seat near the Lakers bench, was also present to pass on the game ball to LeBron James, a ceremonial passing of the torch.

Lebron James isn’t the only one who’s had an eventful week. Jay-Z was crowned the greatest rapper of all time by Billboard and Vibe. In honor of this year marking the 50th anniversary of hip-hop, the famed publications recently concluded their ’50 Greatest Rappers of All Time’ list.
In the highly-anticipated ‘Top 10’ reveal, Jay-Z snagged the number one spot, while fellow lyricists Kendrick Lamar (#2), Nas (#3), Tupac (#4), Eminem (#5), The Notorious B.I.G. (#6), Lil Wayne (#7), Drake (#8), Snoop Dogg (#9), and Nicki Minaj (#10) occupy the seats that follow.
Jay-Z also received three nominations at the 65th Annual Grammy Awards last week and ended the ceremony with his 4-minute verse on DJ Khaled’s “GOD DID,” which was up for Song of the Year, Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance.
