Wednesday night’s matchup between the Atlanta Hawks and the Cleveland Cavaliers marked another historic moment for LeBron James, but for once it didn’t have anything to do with his basketball skills.

James became the first NBA player to take a selfie during a game, according to USA Today. The King posed for the picture with some young fans while waiting for a replay review at the scorers’ table.

James also invited one of the kids to sit next to him and J.R. Smith on the sideline of the preseason game at the Cintas Center in Cincinnati.

Good guy LeBron strikes again.
