The whole basketball world wants to know where Anthony Davis will be playing next season if he decides to leave the New Orleans Pelicans.
The Los Angeles Lakers have become the front-runner favorite to land the superstar with much talk about the connection between Davis and the Lakers squad.

When Kyle Kuzma posted on Instagram after a match against the Pelicans that showed Davis in the background, AD joined in the banter with LeBron James in the comments section.


There’s certainly a connection between LeBron and Davis, it was reported that the two stars recently met up after a match for dinner in Los Angeles. With the two superstars being such close friends, there’s every chance that AD would be interested in making the move to L.A. in the offseason if he decides to leave.

LeBron James entered the league with Michael Jordan as his favorite player and more interestingly, Anthony Davis’ favorite player before he started his career was LeBron himself. Knowing this, it would be hard for Davis to say no to joining the Lakers and teaming up with the four-time NBA MVP.

The video is deleted last night from the Reddit, but you can check the link here.

There wouldn’t be many teams in the league that could compete with a Lakers starting a line-up that included both LeBron and AD, both players are two of the greatest modern-day players going around. The Lakers are in a strong position right now and could be a contender for a championship which is the main reason that Davis wants to leave the Pelicans.

For now, it’s all hypothetical but there wouldn’t be many people out there that wouldn’t want to see LeBron and Davis playing on the court together next season.
