LeBron James Talks Anthony Davis, Antonio Brown Becoming ‘Distractions’
February 28, 2019
New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis was part of several stories related to the Los Angeles Lakers and LeBron James. This time King James decided to say a few words about him and Pittsburgh Steelers wideout Antonio Brown and he did that in the latest episode of The Shop.
Davis tried to leave New Orleans before the trade deadline, and Brown made sure his team realizes that he wants out of the team. Both Davis and Brown were part of LeBron’s show, and Brown said people have already labeled him as a “distraction.”
“That’s the narrative they try to create once you doing your own thing,” Brown said. “It’s like, this guy’s a distraction. He’s this type of guy. All I’ve ever been is a guy who came from Central Michigan, 6th round, who worked his ass off.”
LeBron supports Brown and Davis
LeBron went on comparing Brown’s situation to Davis’ problem. The Lakers star supported him.
“Seven years in the league, nobody’s ever said … anything negative about AD,” LeBron said. “But you can tell when the narrative changed when you don’t do what they want you to do.”
Davis, Brown, Maverick Carter, Meek Mill, 2 Chainz, Jamie Foxx and Jerrod Carmichael were invited for the second-season premiere.
Things will get really hot this summer. The Lakers will try to sign Davis again. Many say the Pelicans did a bad move at the very same moment they decided not to accept Magic Johnson’s offer. Well, that’s a thing of the past, and they better lay their hands on whatever Johnson offers. Davis may go anyway, and they better not miss their chance to get a few nice players on the roster.
Davis’ presence in LeBron’s show is enough for NBA experts to start talking about the violation of NBA’s tampering rules. Let’s see what happens next.
