During the All-Star Weekend in Chicago, LA Lakers superstar Anthony Davis talked about the decision of Kawhi Leonard to join the Clippers.
Davis said he respects that Leonard chose the Clippers over the Lakers, because he made the league more ‘interesting’ and ‘fun’.
“At the time when it was going down before he decided, you think about what the team could be. The defensive mindset we could’ve had, the scoring ability we could’ve had. Me, him and LeBron [James] is obviously something that teams would fear.
I think he just made the league interesting. He made the league fun. And that’s the great thing about sports. You never know what’s going to happen. Now we kind of have this, as you guys would say, quote-unquote rivalry in L.A., so it’s fun,” Davis told reporters, via Kyle Goon of The Orange County Register.
The Lakers are on top of the West with a 41-12 record, whereas the Clippers are third, at 37-18.
