Lakers decide to rest Davis

"I think I've said it before I mean, probably the best athlete to ever walk this planet when you think about his strength, power, speed, durability", Kerr said on Thursday.

As most sports fans are aware, James and Tom Brady are still active and quite good at their respective sports, with Brady doing his thing at an even older age than James.

Davis is a well-liked player by most of his National Basketball Association counterparts, and it's unlikely that any of them are looking to cause him further harm.


Laugh if you want, but both future Hall of Famers are still going strong deep into their respective careers.

National Football League superstar Brady recently stated he doesn't plan on retiring from the sport in the near future.

James had a forgettable debut campaign in Los Angeles, where a groin injury restricted the former Cleveland Cavaliers star to 55 games in 2018-19 as the Lakers missed the playoffs for a sixth successive season. But James hasn't given any indication on how long he'd like to continue his career beyond that.


Davis is averaging 26.3 points, 10.4 rebounds and 2.9 blocks in his first season with the Lakers.

"We've been friends for a long time", Brady said. I've always admired him. "Then we hit a short training camp and had to go to China, and all that stuff, so I'm surprised that we've got a little connection right now".

And while neither player is ready to hang 'em up anytime soon, there's still one major difference between their careers.
