In case you missed it, the Los Angeles area scored a bevy of talent on the basketball court during the offseason.

Kawhi Leonard and Paul George took their talents to the Clippers, while the Lakers countered by acquiring Anthony Davis and Danny Green.

During team introductions on Friday afternoon, Lakers star LeBron James talked about the additions to the team this summer. He raved about the former New Orleans Pelicans big man acquired in a trade.

James called Davis a "beautiful young mind" and said the Lakers offense needs to flow through AD.

"It's exciting to have such a beautiful young mind, a beautiful player but also a great leader as well. I think it's a great opportunity for this franchise," James said about Davis.

The Lakers gave up plenty to get Davis - Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and several draft picks. However, Davis puts the team in position to compete for titles right away.

LeBron and AD provide one of the best duos in the league - rivaled by the Clippers across town.

Preseason action for the Lakers kicks off with a contest against the Golden State Warriors on October 5. LeBron faces off against the Warriors and Steph Curry once again.
