Anthony Davis should go to the Boston Celtics because the Celtics are a contender and have a very deep team that is young, athletic, talented, execute well and have Superstar Kyrie Irving, former Allstar Al Horford, soon to be All stars Gordon Hayward, Jayson Tatum they defend and score efficiently and is well coached.
The Boston Celtics are true contenders, the Lakers on the other hand are pretenders. They have a decent record for now but that will change as they face tougher challenges. They’ve had a relatively easy schedule for the most part and almost every time the Lakers met a good team resulted in a loss. The Warriors basically beat themselves and shot themselves in the foot and shot horribly from the field and their best players got into early foul trouble. I guarantee you it will be a much different ball game next time they meet.
Lebron James is entering into the last years of his career. He is clearly a few steps slower and has to take breaks on defense to catch his breath and as a result, you see players drive right by him.
Kyrie Irving on the other hand is in his prime. One of the best ball handlers, if not thee best ball handler in the league, he can score from anywhere on the court, has decent court vision and a very capable defender and is clutch. Lebron James has shown that he is not really a clutch player..at least not on the same level as other past and present superstars especially Michael Jordan. So if the game is on the line, Lebron is not necessaringly the go to guy but Kyrie has nerves of steel and has shown to have no fear of taking and making the clutch shots down the stretch.
Celtics have better 3 point shooting big men which will give Anthony Davis more space to do work in the paint.
Celtics have playoff experience, they took Lebron’s Cavaliers to 7 games without Kyrie and Hayward their two best players this past season in the Eastern Conference finals. The Lakers on the other hand, more than half the Laker roster has never even been to the first round let alone a Conference finals which makes a big difference come playoff time when going for a ring.
The Celtics also have more to offer New Orleans talent and depth wise. So it makes more sense for New Orleans to deal Anthony Davis to the Celtics. Further more, the Celtics have the most Championships than any other team in the League. If Anthony is about winning the Championship he should go to a team with the best Championship history, Lebron couldn’t get it done with Cleveland and Kevin Love, Lebron can’t get it done by himself on the Lakers. Kyrie is not alone in Boston, so if Anthony is not about the money but about winning than Anthony goes to the Celtics.
The Celtics are also in the Eastern Conference which historically has been the weaker conference. Which means it takes less effort to get wins, less effort to advance in the playoffs. Which means more energy to expend during the playoffs. This of course is theoretically because the season is still young and there’s been a lot of changes since last season so we will have to see who the real good teams are as the weaker teams fall towards the bottom of the rankings.
There’s also been talk from other superstars in the League that don’t want to play with Lebron James. It’s more than one superstar which means theres must be some merit to it. The Lakers had a chance to get other stars like Paul George and Kawhi Leonard but despite the Laker efforts they chose to stay away from the Lakers and Lebron.
The bottom line is Anthony Davis would be way better off going to the Boston Celtics…for many reasons. The Lakers are pretenders and the Celtics are contenders and if Anthony wants a ring or two or three its clear he needs to go the Celtics.
