“I Wanna Talk to My New Teammate”: Anthony Davis Shrugs Off LeBron James Away as He Expresses Excitement to Team Up With Bronny James

Anthony Davis and LeBron James have shared the basketball court for the Los Angeles Lakers for several years. Now, as Davis welcomes James’ son, Bronny, to the Lakers, his focus has amusingly shifted towards the younger James.

AD recently shared a hilarious phone call that highlighted his new priority.

I actually called him [Bronny] when he got drafted. I called Bron [because] I don’t have Bronny’s number yet. I called Bron, ‘What’s up man?’ ‘I don’t want to talk to you, I want to talk to my new teammate!’” Davis said.

The Lakers used their No. 17 pick to select Dalton Knecht. When Bronny went undrafted in the first round of the NBA draft, speculation grew about the Lakers’ interest in him. This speculation proved correct, as the Lakers picked Bronny as the No. 55 overall pick the following day.

Reports suggested that Rich Paul, Bronny’s agent, played a crucial role in this outcome. Paul contacted all teams, advising them not to draft Bronny and hinting that he might go to Australia if they did.

LeBron James Admits New Lakers Deal Might Be His Final NBA Contract

LeBron James and his son Bronny recently made history by becoming the first active father-son duo in the NBA. This remarkable achievement has led many to speculate about the possibility of LeBron teaming up with his younger son, Bryce James. However, it appears that this scenario is unlikely to happen.

LeBron signed a new, two-year contract with the Lakers this summer. Meanwhile, in a recent interview with ESPN‘s Dave McMenamin, LeBron hinted that this might be his final NBA contract.

I mean, it could be [the last contract I will ever sign]. I’d never sit up here and say, ‘Oh, maybe not.’ Yeah, it could be. Easily. But we’ll see what happens,” James said.
