"I'm going to stay in shape because you never know". Sports noted the respect Davis has for James' willingness to let a newcomer be the central component of one of the league's most prominent teams.

The 24-year-old will now form a key part of the starting lineup alongside LeBron James and Davis for the Lakers this upcoming campaign.

"I've kind of been a focal-point player my whole career, especially in New Orleans", Davis said.

"But first off, to have a guy like LeBron, someone of his caliber, go tell management and ownership and the coaches that he wants me to be the focal point is an honour".


The Lakers are being touted as one of the favorites for the 2020 National Basketball Association championship following the arrival of Davis in the summer but city rivals Los Angeles Clippers are expected to provide the sternest test after acquiring Kawhi Leonard in free agency and Paul George via trade from Oklahoma City Thunder. "Golden State still has the heart of a champion with everyone they have coming back, but I think L.A.is going to win the championship". "We have a great team". "I think if I'm able to do that, I can help this team win. I'm excited about the challenge, I'm excited for the opportunity and I can't wait to get started".

For the Lakers, they have a weight of expectations heading into the new year after blowing up their team to acquire Davis. In doing so, we'll have a good chance of winning every night. "I just want to stay around it and be as involved as I can".
