No matter what team LeBron James is apart of there is trade rumors.
Anthony Davis is becoming a candidate to win MVP, and LeBron wants to be apart of it. But Davis really isn’t having any of it.
“I don’t really care,” Davis told ESPN of James’ comments Wednesday night after the Pelicans’ 123-115 loss to the Bucks. My job is to turn this team around. If we’re 15-17, that means I’m not doing my job.”
Davis has consistently said he would like to remain in New Orleans, and he declined to commit either way about the possibility of New Orleans offering him a max deal.
“When that time comes, of course we will see,” Davis said. “I love my teammates. I love New Orleans. I love the fans. I talk their slang. I love their food.”
Davis made some waves last month when he told Yahoo he had to play “almost perfect” for the Pelicans to win. Some took that as a lack of faith in his teammates. Davis insists that is not the case.
“I love my teammates,” he said. “But I mean everything I say, and what I meant is that goes for any superstar. If LeBron doesn’t play well, the Lakers probably lose. There’s a ton of weight on the shoulders of a superstar. You don’t see many games where the superstars have bad games and their team wins.”
I doubt that we will see Davis in a Laker uniform, but crazier things have happened.
Here is the video of LeBron talking about Davis.
But as you can expect LeBon isn’t the only athlete who’d love to have Anthony Davis. Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Buck’s is a shining star, could they partner up?
