Lakers’ Tyson Chandler Talks LeBron James’ Leadership

Los Angeles Lakers veteran center Tyson Chandler has been a big boost for the team since coming over following his buyout from the Phoenix Suns earlier this season, and since joining the Lakers he has been impressed by the leadership of his teammate, LeBron James.

“Honestly, I fully expect everything that he gives,” Chandler said, according to Gina Mizell of The Athletic. “He’s been incredible for the game — a Hall of Famer on and off the court for his entire career. We’re close in (draft) classes, a couple years apart, so I’ve been able to watch his journey. I had nothing but respect for him before I got in the (same) locker room, how he’s been able to juggle his success, the expectations and then just the man that he’s become is nothing but respectable.”

Chandler is thankful to be able to play alongside of James.

“I expected the leadership qualities that he has,” Chandler stated. “And I think, as a player, you just get excited when you’re playing alongside one of those types of players — one of the greats that you know, if you get them close to the finish line, they’re able to deliver.”

Anthony Davis

Los Angeles Lakers big man Anthony Davis isn’t short on confidence, and he believes he is the very best in the world.

Although he didn’t win much during his tenure with the New Orleans Pelicans, nor has he ever won a championship, Davis is likely to be in title contention on his new team, the Lakers.

“I’m the best in the world,” Davis proclaimed, according to Alam Abdeldaiem of Sports Illustrated. “I think I do a lot of things that a lot of players can’t do as far as playing a complete game. I can play on the block, play on the perimeter, play defense on both ends, switch 1-5, guard, score the basketball. I want to be the most dominant player in the game, and I’m going to continue to do that.”

Davis also considers other players on the same level as himself, including his teammate LeBron James.

“Obviously you have players like Kawhi, KD, LeBron, Steph all of those guys who are the same way. They’re great players, talented players, Hall of Famers, and that’s what makes our game fun. Everyone wants to be the best in the league. Everyone wants to be the most dominant, and that’s when our competitive edge comes out on the floor and makes the game so fun to watch.”
