When Anthony Davis came to the Lakers, he was expecting to have to share the reigns of leadership with LeBron James. As a 4x All-Star, 3x Champion, and an All-Time great, it's what anyone would expect.

But, according to Anthony Davis, James handed him the controls when he first joined the Purple and Gold this summer.

He straight up told Davis that it was his team and that they would be playing through him. For LeBron to say that, and hand over control like that, is truly unprecedented for a star of his stature.

So far, it seems to be working wonders. Not only are James and Davis among the top of the list for MVP candidates, but the Lakers are soaring. With a record of 8-2, the Lakers hold the best record in the West and the 2nd best overall record in the NBA.

No doubt, the production of LeBron, AD and the support of their stars is the reason for their success. But the chemistry they've built together is no doubt playing a big part.
