Lakers’ Anthony Davis makes big promise to LeBron James as playoffs near
Both Davis and James have struggled with their shots at Walt Disney World. After the Lakers’ most recent loss to the Indiana Pacers, James, Davis, Quinn Cook and J.R. Smith were back in the lab working on their jump shots.
That’s when LeBron took a photo and uploaded it to his Instagram account and Davis responded with a grand statement.
In six games at Disney World, Anthony Davis is shooting just 39.1 percent from the field and 30.4 percent from beyond the arc. Those shooting splits will have to improve in the playoffs if the Lakers want to win the 2020 championship.
LeBron James hasn’t been that much better than Davis in Orlando. The King is shooting 45.2 percent overall and 28.6 percent from 3. Both Lakers stars need to find their shooting touch sooner rather than later.
The Lakers will face the Denver Nuggets and Sacramento Kings to close out the seeding games. Even though Los Angeles has already locked up the No. 1 seed in the West, the team needs to win these final two seeding games to enter the playoffs with some positive momentum.
Once the postseason starts, the Lakers will go as far as LeBron and Davis can lead the team on both ends of the floor.
