Lakers mortgaged their entire future to get him because that was where he wanted to be and they didn't want to wait a year. That's not changing in 11 months.
You haven't changed your mind about something over the course of 11 months? I'm talking about AD of course, not the Lakers.
Also Chandler, Rondo (who is cut off from this picture but is sitting next to the fans instead of LeBron), and McGee all have championships.
Rondo and McGee hated it so much that they're back this year....
I get that it's the time of the off season where the only discussion comes from speculation about the future and because someone smiled at the Bulls, it's taken as a serious flirtation given the desperation to land anyone with talent, but, the fantasy narrative of how his time in LA could self destruct is beyond grasp.
This isn't Dwight-LA as he never wanted to be there in the first place and only went because he had to. As apparent by the rest of the career, you've seen where that attitude has gotten him.
Davis lives in LA in the off season (and now will get to do so year round), looks up to LeBron having idolized him during his entire amateur career, and gets to play for a top 2 franchise in the league. He knows what he's getting into and that isn't being thrown away in a year.
The Lakers didn't make the move on a desperation hail mary either. Just like they were led to prepare for the acquisition of LeBron starting in 2017, they all but had it in writing that if you offer this package that's going to otherwise kill the future of the franchise, you'll have Davis re-signing next year because this is the exact situation he wants to be in.
