I'd be disgusted if he ends up in Boston. They'd have to strip the team to get him and then he'll walk in a year. And for 'transformative' player, he sure hasn't transformed much. Much as I hate LeBron, he had dragged the corpse of the Cavs to 50 wins in 2 years.Lakers have more ammo. I'd be shocked if he ends up in Boston.
Lakers have LeBron as a teammate and the #4 overall pick they're willing to part with. I'm not so sure the Celtics are going to be willing to give up what they have for a player who, from the sounds of it, will be a one year rental. That's if his agent is to be believed.
LeBron as a teammate in L.A. is certainly not a positive in the eyes of the Pelicans, so how would that be trade ammo?Lakers have LeBron as a teammate and the #4 overall pick they're willing to part with.

The Lakers can offerNot only that, but what do the Lakers have? Lonzo Ball? Kuzma? Meh.
And that 4th pick? It’s a steep drop off from the top 3 this year.
At least with regards to Boston, it's the agent's mouth.Why is him being gone after one year wherever he lands an assumption?
Anthony Davis' agent, Rich Paul, discusses Celtics and Knicks, explains why Lakers are a great destination for his clientStill, the Celtics reportedly still plan to pursue a Davis trade even if Irving leaves in free agency. Considering that Boston also has multiple attractive, young assets, Davis could certainly be attainable. However, Paul isn't exactly convinced that Davis would re-sign with the Celtics.
"They can trade for him, but it'll be for one year," Paul added. "I mean: If the Celtics traded for Anthony Davis, we would go there and we would abide by our contractual [obligations] and we would go into free agency in 2020. I've stated that to them. But in the event that he decides to walk away and you give away assets? Don't blame Rich Paul."
