Kevin Love says LeBron James, Lakers ‘could do something special’
LeBron and the Lakers have the best record in the Western Conference. This season marks the first time James has a really good shot of winning his fourth championship since his days with Love and Kyrie Irving in Cleveland.
“It was different because it’s been so long and we’ve been through so many battles with each other,” Kevin Love told ESPN. “I’m not going to say it felt normal, but I feel like we were both out there competing and playing hard, but seeing him play with that team is obviously different. Especially, even I didn’t get to see him with AD [Anthony Davis] and it still feels like they could do something special.”
In his second season with the Lakers, LeBron James is averaging 25.5 points, 7.8 rebounds and 10.7 assists. He’s shooting 49.4 percent from the field, 35.1 percent from beyond the arc and 69.7 percent from the free-throw line.
Lakers star big man Anthony Davis is currently out with an injury, but everyone already knows how lethal he and James are together. In his first season with the Lakers, Davis has been a monster on both ends of the court. He’s averaging 27.1 points, 9.4 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 2.6 blocks while shooting 50.4 percent from the field, 29.7 percent from beyond the arc and 85.9 percent from the free-throw line.
