NBA stars pay tribute to LeBron: Curry and the legendary stuff, Doncic's four photos...

LeBron James reached something unattainable for mere mortals, beating Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's 38,387 points and become the NBA's all-time leading scorer.

One more step in the legend, reaching records that lasted almost half a century and that seemed to be the heritage of the impossible.

It makes him a legend of legends, something that in the NBA is appreciated, valued and put in a place of maximum importance in the best basketball league in the world.

Rivals pay tribute

"Congratulations, we saw legendary things in there," noted Stephen Curry, LeBron's great rival during countless Finals between Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers.

Another competitor, also in the West, is Luka Doncic.

He only gave him a "congratulations", but accompanied the congratulations with five different photos of his games throughout the Slovenian's career with the Dallas Mavericks, the ultimate expression of respect.

Respect for LeBron ranges from rivals to teammates

"It's a pride and pleasure to be a part of such a legendary situation," confessed Darvin Ham, coach of the Lakers.

In Los Angeles, LeBron is living national hero day.

"LeBron Raymone James Sr, all-time leading scorer," commented Pau Gasol, legend of the franchise and of Spanish basketball, on his Twitter account.

Everyone, also the teams in which LeBron played, Miami, Cleveland and the gold and purple themselves, is in awe.

Dwyane Wade, one of his best partners, was courtside in Los Angeles with team owner Jeanie Buss, while Carmelo Anthony, LeBron's generational rival since his landing in the NBA, joined in the congratulations.

"Family forever. You're so great, my brother," he commented.

"Unbelievable," Dirk Nowitzki said.

"The word generational can't even explain you," said new All-Star Tyrese Haliburton.

Others, like Fred Van Vleet, were more direct, posting just the emoticon of a goat, as best of all time.
