At 33 years and 24 days, the King became the youngest player to do so, beating Kobe Bryant’s previous mark (34 years, 104 days).

Drake, who is a huge basketball fan and actually acts as an international ambassador for the Toronto Raptors, now wants to record a song to mark the moment.

He said: ‘LeBron, I’m honoured to be part of yet another historic night. 30,000 career points, it’s incredible.

‘It seems like every time we look up you’re setting another milestone or breaking another record. I always tell you you’re one of the most inspirational people in my life.

‘My journey from being a kid who first picked up a basketball when I was 5 years old to first playing organised basketball when I was 9 all the way up to this point.

‘I give a lot of thanks to a lot of people. This is a special moment. It’s something I never set out to do.

‘I’m not even a score-first guy when it comes to playing basketball. I love getting my teammates involved and seeing my teammates be excited about scoring and me getting the assist and things of that nature.’
