Los Angeles Lakers head coach Frank Vogel will have LeBron James and Anthony Davis on the floor at the same time as much as possible, the Lakers mentor said, according to a report.
In a scrimmage session on Sunday (Philippine time), Vogel had his potential starting lineup of James, Davis, Rajon Rondo, Danny Green, and JaVale McGee on the floor at one point, NBA.com reported.
“Both [have] their ability to play equally as effective off the basketball as they do on the basketball,” Vogel said. “They’re guys who are going to smash the defense if they don’t bring early help and double teams, and they’re both great, willing passers and have the ability to beat you off the ball.”
Both Davis and James, meanwhile, admitted that the Lakers’ attack has to start with them.
“No matter what, I think our chemistry is very important,” Davis said, “because it starts with us.”
“Obviously it starts and ends with me and AD, and how we approach the game on and off the floor will trickle to everybody else,” James said. “We need everyone out on the floor to buy into what Coach Vogel and the coaching staff wants us to do. And then it’s up to us to lead that and second-command that.”
