LeBron James' comments this week about the possibility of playing with Anthony Davis has gotten the attention of NBA general managers around the league.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski, small-market general managers are upset that the NBA’s tampering rules are never enforced against big time players like LeBron that have the ability to recruit other super stars.
League executives contend that the NBA needs to start holding players responsible for public comments the way they generally do owners and management.
“If these are the rules, enforce them. “If you want to push Anthony Davis in LA, if you allow LeBron to interfere with teams, then just do it. Change the rules, and say It’s the wild, wild west and anything goes. But give us a list of the rules that you’re enforcing, and give us a list of the rules that you’re going to ignore.”
This all started when LeBron was asked what it would be like to play with Anthony Davis and responded by saying "that would be amazing."
