Anthony Davis and Dwight Howard made a lot of headlines these couple of days and this has nothing to do with their performance. These two got into a thing during the game against the Phoenix Suns on Friday and their teammates had to separate them. LeBron James and Rajon Rondo did their best to prevent the whole situation to turn into something ugly. They were right, right?
Rondo has the perfect explanation for this. He knows that things like this happen all the time, especially when it comes to putting two incredibly competitive players on the same roster.
“It can happen, you know, (stuff) happens all the time,” Rondo said Saturday. “But nevertheless, those two guys, I wouldn’t say they’re best friends, but they get along very well. Dwight’s my best friend some days, A.D.’s my best friend some days. Other than that, two guys going at it, two guys wanting to compete.
“Frustrations happen on the court, obviously they gotta control things better, but at the same time, when you lose things are more magnified, and the Lakers – it seems crazy, but at the same time, I think we’re in a great place, where we need to be as far as continuing to get better.”
Howard and Davis talked after the game and things look good at this point. Vogel said there’s no reason to be worried about his players. They are grownup man who want to win.
Anthony Davis and Dwight Howard to help the Lakers win games
Yes, Lakers players have a few good reasons to be frustrated at this point. They didn’t win games in the preseason and they have already lost two regular-season games. Frank Vogel’s players have everything they need to win the championship this season. Several talented veterans decided to take their talents to Los Angeles for a reason. Rob Pelinka built an incredible team and Vogel will sure benefit from the experience his players have.
LA has a chance to fix the damage. LeBron James is pretty confident about his teammates. Players have to stay healthy to avoid the same mistakes they made last season.
