On Tuesday night, nearly all NBA fans across the world tuned in to see LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers make history.
It was during a game against the Oklahoma City Thunder that James passed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and claimed the most all-time points in the history of the league.
Everyone seemed joyous when the historic bucket found the net and scored James the pivotal points.
Everyone except Anthony Davis, who sat on the sideline looking rather glum.
Many news stories were written about Davis’ expression and what was causing him to not be happy as his teammate made history.

The acclaimed big man opened up about the entire incident on Thursday night, following another loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.
“I mean, we’re losing to the Oklahoma City Thunder, a game we needed,” Davis said.
“I was pissed off that we were losing. It’s that simple. It’s nothing that has to do with Bron. He knows that,” he added.
When listening to Davis’ explanation, you can understand why he might not have been out of his seat cheering James on.
Like many Lakers fans, he is sick and tired of seeing the team continually fall short.
Even with James and his major evening, the Lakers still lost to the Thunder on that night, 133-130.
In fact, some people said that it was one of their worst games of the season, with truly abysmal plays, mistakes, and a lack of drive.
Plus, it received more viewers than normal because of the historic nature of the evening.
That means that even more people were watching the Lakers fall apart.
The Lakers are currently in a deep hole and seemingly falling down further.
That is obviously having an impact on Davis’ happiness and most people can understand that.NEXT: Russell Westbrook's Wife Blasts Recent 'Vampire' Report
