Mayor Bass Lights City Hall To Honor LeBron James For Setting the NBA's All-Time Scoring Record

LOS ANGELES — Mayor Karen Bass tonight lit Los Angeles City Hall purple and gold and released a video congratulating LeBron James for breaking the NBA all-time scoring record. A photo of City Hall is available here.
"Congratulations LeBron!
"What you've done -- the breaking of one of the most monumental records in sports -- will be heard throughout our city and around the world. 
"I'd be remiss if I didn't also acknowledge an LA Legend -- Kareem Abdul Jabbar -- who held this record for decades. I am so glad to see that though the record holder is changing hands, it remains in our city of champions.
"So LeBron, on behalf of the people of Los Angeles, I want to congratulate you. We are so proud of your journey thus far, and all that you will continue to do in pursuit of greatness -- both on and off the court.
