Lil Wayne has his reversed one of his bolder basketball takes, arguing that Anthony Davis is now irreplaceable for the Lakers. "You can't get nobody for him that's gon' replace what he can do. There's nobody out there like that. If you could get Jokic, but you can't do that," Wayne said on UNDISPUTED this week.
As mentioned, the sentiment is a major departure from something that Wayne had previously advocated for. "If the Lakers want to be a championship team, they have to get rid of AD," the rapper said on the show last November. It was a bold take at the time, despite Davis' injury struggles. He was still the No. 2 scoring option behind LeBron and his trade value was considered prohibitively high, at least in terms of immediate impact players.
