Davis could attract other superstars
Assuming that Davis is leading the way at the Staples Center for many years to come, it could be attractive for other superstars to join forces with him in LA. If James does stick around for a couple more seasons as well, they could build a super team.
The first name that comes to mind would be Giannis Antetokounmpo. He signed a four-year deal with the Milwaukee Bucks in 2016 and will hit free agency in the summer of 2021. If the Bucks don’t win a title by then, it’s possible that the Greek Freak will test the waters and sign with another organization.
Imagine the length of Davis and Antetokounmpo playing together in Tinseltown. If James is still around as well, it would be ridiculous how good the Lakers would be.
It’s important to note that former Milwaukee head coach Jason Kidd is now an assistant with LA. He had a very strong relationship with Antetokounmpo as well, so the Lakers hiring Kidd could all be part of a bigger plan to entice the Bucks star to sign with LA next summer.
Antetokounmpo voiced back in 2018 that he would never leave Milwaukee for the Lakers because his goal is to bring a title to his current team. But if he doesn’t have a ring by the time his contract is up, the 25-year-old may look elsewhere in 2021.
What better place than LA where he can dominate oppositions on a nightly basis with Anthony Davis.
