Reasons Why Anthony Davis is Perfect Next to LeBron James

Reasons Why Anthony Davis is Perfect Next to LeBron James

As Danny Green - perhaps Kawhi Leonard's closest teammate, having paired with him to win championships in both San Antonio and Toronto - waited on Leonard's free-agent decision last week, he was left in the dark just like the rest of the world.

As a result, the front office has built a respectable rotation that is 14 players deep and should be deep enough to get through the grind of the regular season. It took Cousins a while to come back from the injury, but he began to show signs that he was coming around toward the end of the season. Green signed a two-year, $30 million deal with Los Angeles on Saturday.

Cousins' value absolutely diminished when he ruptured his Achilles in January 2018.

The NBA's best two-way player signed a three-year deal with the Clippers. Green spoke to the media about his decision to join the team and the future of the Lakers.

Luckily for Laker fans, it appears as if Cousins might be able to hit that 80 percent threshold and be a legitimate threat for the Lakers. He is expected to start as a shooting guard this upcoming season.

It's unknown what kind of player Cousins will be after those injuries. "I think of course when superstars are available, you put your best foot forward".

The two automakers are now "equal shareholders" of Argo AI, with VW's $2.6 billion investment into the company. It has sought outside investors to help share the spiraling cost of developing autonomous vehicle technology.

But the biggest reason to be optimistic is LeBron James. The Lakers also have a few players that are very familiar with Cousins, as Anthony Davis and Rajon Rondo both played with Cousins in New Orleans.

Leonard can leave the Clippers in two years and enter free agency in 2021. Davis is in Los Angeles alongside LeBron James after requesting a trade from New Orleans and DeMarcus Cousins was back on the market.

This is a team that cannot only rim protect and clean up the glass but can stretch the floor with the best of them. They're great players, talented players, Hall of Famers, and that's what makes our game fun.

"I've had a chance to play with him, play against him, compete and now compete with him", Green said.

DeMarcus Cousins is primed to finally overcome his injury woes and show the National Basketball Association that he still has a lot left in the gas tank.

The Lakers reportedly believed they were the favorite for Kawhi, but one of Leonard's teammates suggested the Lakers were never in the hunt.
