LeBron James knows what he's doing

Giannis Antetokounmpo will keep one of his own. James took Davis, Klay Thompson, Damian Lillard, Russell Westbrook, LaMarcus Aldridge, Karl-Anthony Towns and Bradley Beal.

James gave the 76ers, Bucks and Raptors high marks for their aggression during the trade deadline, pointing to his move out west as one reason those teams have been so active.

We NEED the reactions of every Lakers player named in the Davis trade packages ASAP.

The first televised draft included a lot of thinking and joking between captains LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo, as well as an All-Star first: a draft day trade!

"Pop is going to tell me I can only play him two minutes", James said, likely only half-seriously. James was the No. 1 overall selection by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2003 National Basketball Association draft and Miami took Wade with the No. 5 pick in the same draft.

Later on in the draft, Antetokounmpo drafted James' Klutch Sports teammate Ben Simmons to his roster and even apologized to James because he knew James wanted Simmons.

Ariana Grande has reportedly turned down the chance to perform at the GRAMMYs , following a dispute with producers of the show. During an interview with Billboard a year ago , Ariana made it very clear that she is not a pushover in the industry.

Then came deciding which legends would go where with both Dirk Nowitzki and Dwayne Wade being late adds by National Basketball Association commissioner Adam Silver.

Antetokounmpo added Dirk Nowitzki as his special selection. "I love the process of everything I go through to be able to compete every single night and put teams in position to compete for championships".

A quietly great part of the clip is Antetokounmpo murmuring "oh wow" to himself after James makes the pick. "I'm going with my buddy, Dwyane Wade".

"I didn't have to lobby for it", Wade said.

James reacted to the trade activity this week in Boston, where the Lakers just escaped with a win thanks to a Rajon Rondo buzzer-beater.

Below are the starters and reserves selected by James and Antetokounmpo, in order.

With a smile on his face, Antetokounmpo obliged and sealed the deal to send Simmons to Team LeBron, while the 76ers point guard was at home riding the rollercoaster of events.
