In the modern NBA, the top teams have several stars on their roster. In Hollywood, the Lakers have two of the best in the form of LeBron James and Anthony Davis.
While chemistry isn’t always easy – some stars may hesitate to share the spotlight – James and Davis have formed a pretty effective partnership. Playing with AD gives LeBron a bit more space and a reliable secondary option. For Davis, it gives him a chance to thrive without the pressure of being the guy who has to rise up night after night.
That relationship has already paid off. The LA Lakers dominated the regular season; While there was a brief hiccup in the early days of the bladder, the team found their feet again and marched to the NBA title. If Davis stays in Hollywood, which seems increasingly likely, it can be assumed that he and LeBron James will see a few more championships in the years to come.

During the 2019-20 NBA campaign, LA Lakers security guard Alex Caruso became a cult hero. Its popularity wasn’t limited to fans, however; Both Anthony Davis and LeBron James apparently appreciate the efforts of the Bald Mamba.
“Caruso, LeBron and AD always want him in the game because they know he can handle the ball,” Lakers assistant coach Mike Penberthy told Lakers Daily ‘s Ryan Ward. “You know he can shoot the three. You know he’ll keep watch. They know he won’t make stupid mistakes. You know he likes to push the ball in transition. It also fits in with the strengths of these two guys. ”
While Caruso’s stats – he averaged 5.5 points, 1.9 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game last season – doesn’t make the headlines, it doesn’t matter to Davis and James. The security guard still finds a way to contribute, even if he doesn’t always make it into the boxing standings.
“I think his basketball IQ is really high,” Penberthy continued. “His NBA skills are very high. He is an above average athlete and an excellent defender. That’s what makes him so good. ”

Alex Caruso not only impressed Lakers fans and teammates. The guard is apparently quite respected in NBA circles, too.
“Every time we wanted to make a trade in the off-season or before close of trading, every team wanted Alex Caruso,” Penberthy told Ward. “He is known in the entire league and respected in the entire league.”
If you just saw the Twitter memes, it would be understandable if you thought Alex Caruso was nothing more than an inside joke. In a league that is dominated by superstars, every team needs a glue. Anthony Davis and LeBron James have apparently identified the Bald Mamba as their perfect wingman.
