As good and impactful as he is, Anthony Davis has also drawn plenty of criticism since joining theLos Angeles Lakers.
Davis has often shown a worrisome level of inconsistency, and it often feels like his drive goes on and off.
Some fans have been extremely frustrated by Davis lack of toughness from time to time, and now it seems like even LeBron James feels the same way.
According to CBS Sports Bill Reiter, James is frustrated and over Anthony Davis.
.@sportsreiter has heard LeBron James is frustrated and is over Anthony Davis.

Reiter said on The Zach Gelb Show that James is a moody guy and that he often changes his mind about people, adding that he doesn t trust Davis toughness for obvious reasons.
Notably, this isn t the first time a report like this has surfaced.
Just last season, when James broke Kareem Abdul-Jabbar s scoring record, Davis didn t bat an eye or reach out to him to congratulate him, later saying that he was angry because they were losing the game.
Davis has refused to play at the five because he doesn t like the physical burden it takes, and his injury-proneness has also made that an issue since he joined the team.
He can t seem to bring the same level of intensity every single night, and he failed to step up as the Lakers go-to guy, as he was supposed to be the one who carried the offense, not a 38-year-old LeBron.
Davis is most likely a future Hall-of-Famer and one of the most impactful players in the game when he s healthy, but he needs to be more consistent.
