It just wouldn't be the NBA All-Star Game without LeBron James taking the floor as a starter.

The Los Angeles Lakers superstar participated in his 15th consecutive All-Star Game on Sunday at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, tying him with Lakers legend Kobe Bryant for the most starts in the history of the event.

James is also the only player to be named an All-Star starter 15 years in a row.

His 15 appearances are tied with Shaquille O'Neal and Kevin Garnett for the third-most ever, with Bryant (18) and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (19) the only players with more.

With three All-Star Most Valuable Player awards (2006, 2008, 2018) to his name, James began the night as the event's all-time leader in points (343), field goals (266), and 3-pointers (35).
