Antetokounmpo said, “I was not the no. 1 pick of NBA, it was LeBron and AD. I was not supposed to be here. I was never supposed to go up against these two beasts of players. So I am just really happy to be here and that I am going through the process and being better every time and do something that gives me joy.”
Davis Jr led the LA Lakers with his 36 points along with 10 rebounds while LeBron James added in his 22 points as well as 11 assists and 12 rebounds to have his seasons’ 7th triple-double.
