Anthony Davis seemed to roll an imaginary blunt and pass it to LeBron James during the Lakers’ win over LaMelo Ball and the Hornets.
The presence of LeBron James guarantees an instant boost to any team’s chemistry. He remembers handshakes with every player he’s ever played with or against.
He also has a quirky side to his demeanor on court, which reveals itself in the best of times. This incident with Anthony Davis during their win over the Hornets is just another addition to the list.
Who saw this last night? 😂

AD and LeBron seem to have meshed like peanut butter and jelly with the rest of this Lakers squad. This light-hearted moment demonstrates just how self-assured the whole group is.
Can the Lakers take the top seed when Anthony Davis comes back?
Anthony Davis will be missing at least 3 more weeks in the near future with a calf injury. But this still leaves a sizeable chunk of the season for him to play himself into fitness for the playoffs.
The Lakers have picked up the tempo again, winning 4 straight games with Dennis Schroder back. They will be highly touted to pursue the top-seeded Jazz for the remainder of the season.
With 32 games left to go, the Jazz would want to pick up the recent defensive slack that they’ve shown. A top-seeded finish might be the difference between a first-round elimination and a Conference Finals appearance.
AD and LeBron remain the best duo in the league until proven otherwise. James Harden and Kevin Durant are coming for the crown, but the weight is still being carried by the Akron Hammer.
