LeBron James and Anthony Davis have been flirting with the idea of joining forces in L.A. all season long much to the chagrin of NBA owners around the league.
It all started when LeBron told the media that it would be “amazing” to play alongside Davis which pissed of several NBA execs who called for Bron to get fined for tampering.
Ahead of Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Pelicans visiting the Los Angeles Lakers for the first time this season on Friday, LeBron James openly pondered what having the All-Star forward alongside him in purple and gold at Staples Center would be like.
“That would be amazing,” James told ESPN on Tuesday before the Lakers’ 115-110 loss to the Brooklyn Nets, referring to the Lakers landing Davis through a trade. “That would be amazing, like, duh. That would be incredible.”
Davis would later request a trade from the Pelicans and it was implied that he “preferred” to be traded to the Lakers which caused some more drama.
Bron and Athony Davis eventually ran into each in the All-Star locker room today and took this hilarious picture which solicited some hilarious responses from NBA fans on Twitter.
