LeBron James offered some perspective as to what Anthony Davis can expect upon his return to New Orleans. The Los Angeles Lakers new big man is bound to hear some boos after choosing to leave the franchise once he made his trade request public in the eve of the last trade deadline, something that left a lot of Pelicans fans with a sour taste in their mouths.

“It was just a weird feeling, it was an eerie feeling for me,” said James, who left the Cleveland Cavaliers for a shot with the Miami Heat in 2010. “Our situation can be a little different, but we can both relate to being with a franchise for seven years, being a franchise player and trying to take the franchise to a place where it hadn't been before… It's out job as his teammates to try to make him feel as comfortable as possible once we get to the game and make him feel like we're going through it as much as he's going through it.”

This is the same approach that Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh took upon James' return to Cleveland, facing his return as a team and not letting James handle it as an individual. However, the boos rang loud and often, and they weren't directed at Bosh or Wade.

The same will be true once the Lakers take on the Pelicans on Wednesday, with most of the basketball watching Davis and how he handles his introduction and every facet of his play.
