There were many rumors in the past weeks about the possibility of Anthony Davis joining the Los Angeles Lakers. Even LeBron James said he would like to see Anthony Davis in a purple and gold jersey but then again who wouldn’t want a prime Anthony Davis on their team. We’re talking about a guy who is capable of producing 30 points and 20 rebounds per night and is one of the best forwards in recent history.
One of the people who joined this discussion lately is Kevin Garnett, another great power forward. In an interview with the USA Today, Garnett thinks Davis should find his happiness and success with the Los Angeles Lakers.
“I told Anthony Davis this to his face. You are not playing against the guys you are squaring up against every night. You are playing against history, man.”
Garnett believes Davis is pretty much wasting his time with the New Orleans Pelicans and thinks it’s time to move on.
“Anthony Davis playing in New Orleans, I don’t want to say they are wasted days, but they are non-days. He needs to be somewhere where he can be with another guy and they can have a run at a championship. He has been in New Orleans long enough. It is time for a change now. This is it. No better time to do this.”
New Orleans Pelicans are a team that is not in the position to improve much then they already have. For Garnett, putting more superstars in one team makes complete sense and it’s a necessity in today’s league because it drastically increases your chances to actually win a championship
“That’s why he needs to go to a team where he has a chance to hoist the trophy or at least have a chance at going in that direction. He doesn’t have that. Great players need to be with other great players. He is still ‘the guy’ when LeBron is there. They are both ‘the guy.’ That’s why you bring your superpowers together.”
Kevin Garnett is definitely on board for Davis joining the Lakers and he also pointed out a very strong connection between the two players and that is Rich Paul who is the agent for both players.
With all that being said, I guess only time will tell if Davis joins the Los Angeles Lakers and if he does, the Lakers will once again become a powerhouse in the western conference
