Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: Anthony Davis has it all

New Orleans Pelicans forward / center Anthony Davis will test his injured shoulder before deciding whether he will play in the All-Star Game.

"We just didn't want to lose", Durant told ESPN's Rachel Nichols after accepting the MVP trophy on the court after the game.

On the Monday of trade deadline week, it was reported that Davis' camp had provided the Pelicans with a list of four teams - the Lakers, Clippers, Knicks and Bucks - that he would sign long-term deals with.

This isn't just because Davis demanded a trade and has essentially quit on his team. "They are on my list", he said.

What's going on with Anthony Davis' list?

Of course Anthony Davis has a preferred destination, but it's likely that we won't find out exactly where that is until the end of the 2019-20 season. Asked about it Saturday, Seth declined to talk about their relationship. The two starters with the most fan votes in each conference - James from the Western Conference and Antetokounmpo from the Eastern Conference - were named captains. Despite the National Basketball Association turning into a shoot happy league that wholeheartedly embraces the need for three-pointers, several stars over the years have grown into competent shooters after entering the National Basketball Association without the necessary tools.

"We just started making shots", Durant said. "To be doing what he's doing, taking a risk as he is". He's been playing at a high level. I definitely support him, even though I'm in another sport, but I definitely support his movement.

Additionally, Davis put the National Basketball Association on notice when he said that Boston was a trade destination of his. Like I've been telling everybody, it's a bittersweet moment for myself. Davis distanced himself from Demps's dismissal - "I didn't know anything about that" - and failed to offer much in the way of well wishes for his longtime boss.

"I looked at them and then I chose them", he said. In a locker room there's a lot of jokes going around every day, so you've got to hold your own. Paul George and Khris Middleton each scored 20 points for Team Giannis, which got 17 apiece from Stephen Curry and Russell Westbrook. "I would have never, never, never thought I would be in this position right now", Antetokounmpo said. "But obviously for years to come, those guys will be in it". I think tanking make sense as a one time event when you have a team of veterans whose window has closed and no flexibility (like the Grizzles now), but you should be trying to move forward after that. When looking for an MVP in a game like this, you need to find a player that has extra motivation to be a little selfish in this exhibition.
