I don't see how it means anything beyond him giving the most basic PC answer.
KC said it rang hallow because the Bulls were rebuilding and that he and LeBron share the same agent. Those aren't really great reasons, consider both things could change by the end of the year.
I also strongly disagree that he gave the most basic PC answer. The mecca quote was beyond a standard answer. And saying he was open to one day joining the Bulls a month after joining the Lakers doesn't strike me as something that most players would say. The most basic PC quote is saying you're focused on the team you're on.
He has said these things too.
A lot is being made out of nothing. Davis isn’t a good media performer. He says nothing when trying to say something. Read all his quotes, watch videos of him talking.
This random quote means nothing.
And until further notice, the Bulls are still rebuilding, Rich Paul can get Davis significantly more money in LA, and the Lakers are an appreciably better team.
Lebron alone makes them better. Kuzma is a nice talent, but if you take Lebron off or a declining Lebron, are the Lakers a better team than the Bulls? I say that only because the talents of Lauri, Zach, WCJ, and Otto are more enticing than anything the Lakers have sans Kuzma. The Lakers have good vets, but they are all soon to be aging. Lebron surely will be in decline soon if he is not already as he is near 35. I have looked at all the stats of all the greats and other than MJ, all numbers start to dip a little around 33, 34, or 35. I would imagine AD is the only player that can protect a little longevity of Lebron on the current team. If somehow AD wanted to come here, surely one of Wendell or Lauri could land us a nice pg to pair along with Zach and having Coby come off the bench. However, I dont believe AD will come here. I do believe AD is waiting to see how the season goes though to see whether he resigns with the Lakers, but that is really risky as he is injury prone.
