Lakers star LeBron James is passing to Anthony Davis more than any previous teammate

LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Lakers

It’s safe to say Los Angeles Lakers small forward LeBron James loves to play with power forward Anthony Davis.

According to Bryan Kalbrosky of Hoops Hype, James is passing the ball to Davis more than any previous teammate of his.

According to the available tracking data, 23.4 percent of his passes have been to Davis. James has averaged 2.5 assists per game to Davis, establishing a far better rhythm than any he has ever had with a big man.

When dividing the minutes they have shared the court by 36, James is averaging more than 25 passes to Davis. That is the most since he averaged 22.3 passes per 36 shared to Kyrie Irving during their 2015-16 campaign, which ultimately resulted in an NBA championship.

Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love are four stars James has played with in his career. However, none of those guys are like Davis, who could go down as the best teammate LeBron has ever played with when it’s all said and done.

Davis is a monster on both sides of the ball and can score effortlessly from all areas of the court.

AD is averaging 24.5 points, 9.2 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 3.2 blocks per game this season for the Lakers, who are 11-2. The six-time All-Star is shooting 47.5 percent from the field, 25.0 percent from beyond the arc and 87.0 percent from the free-throw line.
