What’s with LeBron James’ former teammates talking like they never played with him?
First, Nets guard Kyrie Irving – who played with LeBron on the Cavaliers – said Kevin Durant was the first teammate he trusted to take clutch shots.
Now, Pelicans forward Brandon Ingram – who played with the LeBron on the Lakers – gave eyebrow-raising praise of Zion Williamson. Not only did LeBron thrust Ingram into months Anthony Davis trade rumors, LeBron also encroached on Ingram’s ability to play his game. Obviously, the Lakers were right to prioritize LeBron and Davis over Ingram.
