    "Where is Anthony Davis #1 except scoring?"
    Are you 2 out of your minds? AD is going to rebound more effectively than LeBron, he's going to score more effectively, and he's definitely going to be lightyears ahead if LeBron defensively by the time January rolls around. The real question is: Where is LeBron #1 over AD besides passing?

    Lakers MVP ?
    Its going to be a close one between Lebron and Caruso's hair.
    But I'd say Caruso by a Hair.

    Danny Green is taking the back seat this season and his score opportunities are limited by AD and LBJ.

    What a stupid debate. Who cares which one is the focal point? All that should matter is what puts them in the best position to win. We place too much emphasis on egos and not enough on what truly matters. Do you think it would matter to AD if Lebron leads them to a championship? What about Lebron the other way around? Besides its not really about AD and Lebron, it's about their supporting cast, the team that has to sustain them when they are on the bench.

    As a proud LeBron fan i love how when Nick makes his points he casually slips in that he's the greatest player ever 😹😹

    1. MJ was number one in name, but Scotty ran the offense. Larry was number one, but Tiny and then DJ ran the offense.

    2. No team in NBA history would not have LeBron James run the offense if he was available. Even Magic didn't have the gravity for defenses LeBron has.

      I agree the eye test .. tells you that lebron is not just the best player on the Lakers but prob in the league when he is engaged on the defensive side of the ball who has made him play defense ???.. one Anthony Davis ..

      Yeah, the only difference From 10 years ago is that he can't be 100% all the time, and he had to slow down difense. But he's a smart man, at playoff time he Will be ready to go again.

    All this talk of who's the best, Alpha male b.s. is exactly that b.s., at least for this Laker team.
    What they are about is taking advantage of what the opposition gives them, so in some nights A.D. will be the leader or best player, while on other games LeBron will step up, there are even games where other players will hold the key. A good example of this philosophy can be seen in last night's game vs the Warriors where the big men were the best players on the court. If the Lakers players buy into this system by casting aside their ego, the Lakers will become a complete team whose sum is greater than the total of their parts, this is what champion teams are usually composed of.
