President Joe Biden took the opportunity to congratulate LeBron James on breaking the NBA’s all-time scoring record. The President stated in a personal message, “LeBron congratulations! With your whole heart and soul, you broke a hallowed record.” He went on to thank James for raising the level of the game and inspiring the nation to perform better.
‘You elevated the game and more than that like Kareem and Bill Russell and others who came before you. You challenged and inspired a nation to do better, do better and live up to our full promise.
The President also wished James and his family all the best and God’s blessings, especially his mother, Gloria, wife, Savannah, and children, Bronny, Bryce, and Zhuri.
The incident occurred after Lebron James broke Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s record of 38,387 points scored.
Biden appeared on the jumbotron and proceeded to congratulate Lebron but the Lakers crowd started to boo Biden as soon as his face came on the screen.

Joe Biden was booed at the Los Angeles Lakers game. Biden getting booed in Los Angeles leads one to believe that Biden’s national approval rating is below 30 percent. No one in America likes Joe Biden’s America.
