LeBron James achieved a historic moment against the Oklahoma City Thunder by becoming the NBA’s all-time leading scorer, surpassing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar‘s record. He was widely celebrated globally for this accomplishment.
This milestone caused former NBA star Shaquille O’Neal to get James to acknowledge that he is now considered the greatest basketball player of all time. Despite numerous well wishes for James’ achievement, there was a surprising individual who did not celebrate.
Surprisingly, it was his teammate Anthony Davis who earned a ring with LeBron James in 2020.

Given that LeBron James and Anthony Davis have always had a tight relationship, it was puzzling that Davis just refused to notice the fadeaway shot that led to James becoming the NBA’s all-time scoring leader.
NBA fans surprised by Davis’ reaction
Anthony Davis has returned to the Los Angeles Lakers’ roster after missing several weeks due to injuries. But that’s no reason for Davis to sit and ignore James’ incredible accomplishment.
LeBron may have picked up on some tension between himself and Davis. On Twitter, a video of LeBron demonstrating his affection for AD went viral.
Hope everything is okay with AD 🙏 pic.twitter.com/ecLDyvFj4h
