The Los Angeles Lakers head coach Frank Vogel shared his thoughts on the duo of LeBron James and Anthony Davis of the Lakers:
“I think we got the best of them, of all the duos. We’ve got two top-five players, two guys that really just do it all. I’d put those two guys against anybody in the league. … Both [have] their ability to play equally as effective off the basketball as they do on the basketball. They’re guys who are going to smash the defense if they don’t bring early help and double teams, and they’re both great, willing passers and have the ability to beat you off the ball,” Vogel said, per Lakers.com.
This past season, Davis averaged 25.9 points, 12.0 rebounds, 2.4 blocks and 3.9 assists per game. James, meanwhile, averaged 27.4 points, 8.5 boards and 8.3 assists per contest.
