Anthony Davis welcomes LeBron James' praise but focus remains on Pelicans

Anthony Davis welcomes LeBron James' praise but focus remains on Pelicans

Commenting on the rumors swirling around New Orleans Pelicans All-Star Anthony Davis teaming up with LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers, Barkley said that Davis going to L.A. would be bad for the National Basketball Association.

"We're not trading him", said Gentry, according to Steve Aschburner of NBA.com "I can say that to the world. If we're 15-17, that means I'm not doing my job". "I love New Orleans", it may be nice for him to share the load with another perennial MVP contender.

LeBron James appears to be done playing coy concerning his interest in Anthonys, both Davis and Carmelo.

LeBron James #23 and Anthony Davis #23 of Team LeBron celebrate after winning the NBA All-Star Game 2018 at Staples Center on February 18, 2018 in Los Angeles, California. If Anthony Davis leaves New Orleans, they'll be irrelevant, and that's unfortunate. According to Wojnarowski, there's a broad belief among smaller-market GMs that the National Basketball Association doesn't just condone the public wooing of star players toward big markets, but also encourages the practice. He's averaging 28.0 points, 12.3 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 2.7 blocks per game for a Pelicans team that's 13th in the Western Conference. "If you want to push Anthony Davis in LA, if you allow LeBron to interfere with teams, then just do it. Change the rules, and say "It's the wild, wild west and anything goes".

All of that might not be enough to keep Davis in New Orleans if the team doesn't start winning. "We all get that it's a players' league, but there are rules on the books that they need to follow, too".
