A detail that did not go unnoticed by fans of Los angeles lakers in full celebration of the championship achieved were the words of Anthony Davis, in which he did not guarantee that it would continue next year.
As with Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid in the 2018 Champions League final, ‘la Ceja’ stated that he was not “100% sure” of continuing to wear the Angelina shirt next season. These words have raised enormous dust, since Davis has been a perfect second sword for LeBron James and many consider him essential to complement the ‘King’.

Before an eventual departure from Staples, there are already names on the table to replace him. Many look to the young people who are shining, and among them one stands out above the rest: Luka Doncic.
The Slovenian is in spectacular shape at a time, and Michael Jordan himself already praised him at the time. Seeing him with LeBron James is a possibility that, at the moment, does not pass as a dream, but some authorized voices dare to place him black on white.
One of them is the legendary Earvin ‘Magic’ Johnson. The former Lakers chief operating officer and current television commentator was receptive to the idea in an ESPN interview. “Luka to the Lakers … I like him.”
Doncic has touched the ‘triple-double’ of average in the past season with Dallas Mavericks, with 28.8 points, 9.4 rebounds and 8.8 assists. For his part, Davis has made 26.1 points, 9.3 rebounds and 3.2 assists, slightly worse marks than those of the former Real Madrid player.
