Yeah … Anthony Davis could give zero (bleeps).
When LeBron James (LBJ) broke Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s all-time NBA scoring record Tuesday night, Los Angeles Lakers fans and teammates alike lost their minds in absolute excitement — except for one teammate, and it was a big one in star forward Anthony Davis, who won a championship with LBJ in 2020.
Right before LeBron broke the record, Davis ventured over to the bench and sat down. Once LBJ hit the historic shot, Davis was completely emotionless, appearing to not care whatsoever about his teammate’s legendary accomplishment.
LeBron hit the 38,888 mark for the record at the end of the third quarter, making a turnaround jumper, which set off a celebration that featured Abdul-Jabbar himself, LeBron’s family and NBA commissioner Adam Silver.
Anthony Davis had this to say after the game:
“I don’t think it was emotional for us,” Davis said, regarding his feelings prior to the contest. “We tried our best to go out and play the game of basketball. Obviously, when it happened the emotions for Bron, our organization, our team, our fans, the world, the emotions kick in and everyone was very celebratory in the moment. Coming in, we tried to keep it as a normal game as possible.”

Well, well, well … what do we have here? Trouble in paradise much?
As far as I can see, it’s pretty obvious Anthony Davis and LeBron James don’t like each other, and the reason why I’m making that assumption is because LeBron falls out with people left and right. He’s done it with every franchise he’s been with — he did it with the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Miami Heat and now here we go with the Los Angeles Lakers.

That man is always pissing people off, and it’s showing in flying colors with Anthony Davis.
