LeBron James was back with his headband look as the Los Angeles Lakers took on the Oklahoma City Thunder at the Crypto.com Arena on Tuesday. The 38-year-old, during his side’s 133-130 loss, broke NBA’s all-time scoring record.

James, in his young days, sported a headband for games. However, it became rare and rare as the seasons passed. On the day he was touted to surpass Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the all-time scoring record, the LA Lakers star sported the band again. Several NBA players and social media users reacted.

“LeBron James is bringing back the headband tonight vs. OKC. 👀” another one added.

Jason Tatum and Jordan Clarkson, after looking at LeBron sporting the headband, predicted that he was going to get the 36 points needed to create a new record in his 1410th career game.

With 10.9 seconds left in the third quarter, LeBron lived up to the promise. He surpassed Abdul-Jabbar and the game was halted. The 38-year-old hugged his mother, wife and children on courtside as the Crypto.com Arena cheered for him. A video of various celebrities – Rihanna, Stephen Curry, Snoop Dogg, and Drake – paying their tribute was played.

“I would never ever in a million years dreamt this even better than what it is tonight,” James said. “I just want to say thank you to the Laker faithful. You guys are one of a kind. To be able to be in the presence of such a legend as great as Kareem, it’s very humbling.”
