LeBron James shattered a legendary scoring record on Wednesday night, and everyone in the Crypto.com Arena was on their feet celebrating. However, in a viral video, LeBron James’ superstar teammate Anthony Davis was seen in a serious mood sitting on the bench while everyone else was celebrating.
The Lakers big man explained the situation after receiving a lot of criticism for the viral footage, “It’s about the game,” Anthony Davis said, before going on to add, “I mean, we’re losing to the Oklahoma City Thunder, a game we needed. And I was pissed off that we were losing. It’s that simple. It’s nothing that has to do with Bron. He knows that. Everybody else is outside looking in, it’s their opinion. But I was pissed off that we were losing the game.”
LeBron James changed the course of history and may have broken the NBA’s greatest record, but the Lakers fell to the Oklahoma City Thunder and currently hold the 13th spot in the western conference, making another missed playoff appearance quite likely.
