Free agent Jamal Crawford believes that the Los Angeles Lakers duo of LeBron James and Anthony Davis is a great one and the way the two have shared their roles on the team really works well. According to Crawford, James allowed Davis to be the leading scorer with LeBron coming to help when needed.
This translated well on the court, as the Lakers are sitting atop the Western Conference 49 wins and 14 losses. The Clippers are second with 44 and 20 respectively. Davis is the Lakers’ leading scorer with 26.7 points, 9.4 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game. For his part, LeBron is averaging 25.7 points, 7.9 rebounds and 10.6 assists per game in his 17th NBA season.
“They look terrific. They’ve been unbelievable. Those two, they have so much respect for each other and LeBron, kudos to him he said, ‘Hey. You’re going to be our leading scorer. You’re going to be our go-to-guy. I’ll take over when we need’ and that maturity level is there. It’s him knowing that he wants to be fresh later because he knows exactly what it takes. So you know, those two have been unbelievable and their team is unbelievable. The team fits really well. They have shooters. They have defenders. They have their go-to-guys. I’m sure for them whenever they get back; they’ll try to have that same momentum when the break happened.”
