James Worthy Rumors
There are reports that Anthony Davis will play center for the Los Angeles Lakers this coming season with LeBron James taking the power forward position. In the past AD said that he does not love playing the five but can do it if needed. Lakers legend James Worthy thinks that the best option is to use the former number one pick in the post. “I think initiating Anthony Davis in the post is the best option,” Worthy said on Spectrum SportsNet. “I’ve never been one of those players to say ‘I don’t wanna play three, I wanna play four. I wanna play.’ I don’t know what the problem is, maybe who he defends or where he is on the floor. I think the five is a good spot for him. Because other fives don’t have a shot at guarding him.
“You want to make opponents make adjustments. Him at the five shooting three is going to pull Gobert out and they’re going to have to put somebody small on him and he can take advantage of that. I think he needs to look at what position best suits the team and what position best suits how they wanna play before he just says ‘Ahh, one or the other.’”

“When you think about the top small forwards, you don’t name Paul Pierce,” he explained. “You name T-Mac, Scottie Pippen, James Worthy… you name guys like that. And I just feel like when they named ‘Bron he’s like he’s did things and I should be up there, too, I did just as much as these guys did; I got the ring, I got the numbers… why is my name NOT up there? So I think that it’s a little personal matchup between him and ‘Bron. I don’t think it’s really any dislike; I just think that’s how he feels.”

“It’s hard to say Kobe wasn’t the greatest one,” West told USA TODAY Sports. “But you can’t discard Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. You can’t discard Elgin Baylor. You can’t discard Shaquille O’Neal. You can’t discard Earvin Johnson.” You can’t discard Johnson, who set franchise records for most triple doubles (138), most assists in a game (24) and empowered two Hall of Famers (Abdul-Jabbar, James Worthy) and countless role players for nearly a decade. “He was an incredible leader and he made people play as a team because of his unselfishness and incredible feel for the game,” West said. “When I watched him, I used to say to myself, ‘Here is a player that everyone would like to play with because of his ability to lead and to bring players along with him.’”
