Both Anthony Davis and LeBron James are keeping their promises that they made to each other when the two superstars joined forces in the Los Angeles Lakers.
According to AD, LeBron told him he would bring his first ring in Los Angeles. Meanwhile, Davis replied by saying he wants to take James back to the NBA Finals.
The Lakers are back to the NBA Finals after defeating the Denver Nuggets in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals.
“When I first got here he told me that he wants give me my first ring. I told him I want to get him back to the Finals,” Davis said after Game 5. “Last year he didn’t get there… injury… they were in the 4th place when he got hurt so who knows what could have happened.”
“I told him all the time, I got your back you got my back. Especially in games like this. You miss a couple of shots. He takes over. And it’s throughout the entire series. Every playoff series we’ve been in. Either he takes over or I take over at one point just kind of getting the team going. We don’t want to let each other down. We know why I came here. We want to win a championship. We are four wins away.”
“He takes that responsibility. He feels like if then he let me down. I feel like if we don’t then I let him down. And then we let our team down, the organization down. We don’t want to have that feeling.”
