"When you play this team right here, the bottom line is that LeBron is going to control the whole game down the stretch", Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said. There's also the fact that basketball teams feature five players on the court at a time, whereas football teams are trotting at least 22 starters on the field each game - and thus having to pay more players.
As Friday's conversation on The Shop continued, James noted the central role that NBA and NFL players have held in growing their respective sports and suggested that NFL owners prioritise short-term results over the long-term success of individual players.
You can't help but think LeBron is enjoying the Anthony Davis talk.
LeBron James didn't mince words during the December 21 episode of HBO's "The Shop" when discussing certain differences between the NFL and National Basketball Association, and the level of respect shown to the athletes of each league by ownership. Say it right now. Leonard and Jimmy Butler put on stellar offensive performances, combining for 74 points in the matchup.
New Orleans (15-18) had cut L.A.'s lead to three with seven minutes left when James posted up point guard Jrue Holiday, drawing the defense's attention before kicking out to Kyle Kuzma, who hit a 3-pointer en route to a team-high 23 points.

The company said the recall was issued "out of an abundance of caution" and noted it didn't include all of the company's produce. None of the filtered, treated water has tested positive for E. coli , all E. coli tests returning negative.
"Come on guys, it's not rocket science", James added.
The world's greatest player headlined the night as expected. That's just who I am.
According to a report by Sam Amick of The Athletic, the extra amount of money that the Pelicans can offer to Davis over the other 29 teams in the National Basketball Association will not factor into his decision on whether or not to stay in New Orleans. "If we wouldn't trade him for her, he's probably untouchable". We're not gonna trade him, no matter what. "You can move on from that one". Twice in the past two years the Lakers have been fined for tampering - to the tune of $500,000 after a league investigation produced evidence of improper contact between Pelinka and Paul George's agent and another $50,000 because of comments Johnson made about Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Boston Celtics are considered to be another contender for Davis in a potential bidding war for the 25-year-old this summer.
