LeBron James Says Anthony Davis Joining Lakers 'Would Be Amazing'

"These are great players.I would love to play with a lot of great players".

Small-market general managers told ESPN they feel James' expressed adulation about possibly playing on the same Los Angeles Lakers' team with Davis was tampering and that the league office should enforce the National Basketball Association bylaw that prohibits such comments.

League executives contend that the National Basketball Association needs to start holding players responsible for public comments the way they generally do owners and management.

The success of Big made Marshall the first woman to direct a film that made more than $100 million at the US box office. Her first was to her college sweetheart, Michael Henry, with whom she had a daughter, Tracy. "May she rest in peace".

But James had Davis on his mind after seeing ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski laying out the Lakers' trade priorities in a segment that aired on Tuesday's SportsCenter.

"I am very educated about what I believe in and I'm not doing it in a violent way", James said.

Lebron James himself said that it would be "amazing" if the Lakers managed to acquire the Pelican center as there's no denying Davis' incredible talent.

The lawsuit seeks both monetary damages and a court order that would require Facebook to put in place stronger privacy controls. Depending on how they turn out, the lawsuits and government probes could cost Facebook billions of dollars more in penalties.

"When that time comes, of course we will see", Davis said. "I guess being back on our home floor and being back with my teammates gave me enough energy throughout the game to be able to make enough plays to win".

"And they're not trading Giannis". Good players want to play with other good players.

"When you play this team right here, the bottom line is that LeBron is going to control the whole game down the stretch", Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said. However, if that much money won't move him, it seems likely that at some point New Orleans will have to confront the reality that Davis seems uninterested in a long-term stay at any price. "There's no one in the league that we would trade [Anthony Davis] for, and there's no one out of the league - not even Beyonce". But the Suns opted to deal Ariza to Washington after the Wizards included a young asset in Kelly Oubre Jr., while the Lakers kept their young core of Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma and Josh Hart off limits in discussing a potential deal. It was Davis' only postseason series victory with the Pelicans. The fact that the two players meet in Los Angeles on Friday night (10:30 p.m. ET - watch on fuboTV with the NBA League Pass extension) as the Pelicans visit the Lakers just furthers that storyline.

Gentry's ire may have ratcheted up the tension before the Friday night clash, but it wasn't clear if either James or Davis would be playing, with both listed by their teams as ailing.
