The Los Angeles Lakers are experimenting with a crunch-time lineup of LeBron James at point guard and Anthony Davis at center.
Frank Vogel paired James and Davis with Alex Caruso, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Avery Bradley.
"I mean, we have so many different lineup packages that we can probably go to throughout the course of the season," James said Thursday. "So we're just trying out a few things now in practice -- going with smaller lineups, going with bigger lineups, going with quicker lineups, going with slower lineups. But that's the luxury of having our personnel, we have the ability to do multiple things. So, that's what practice is all about, being able to work on those things."
James isn't necessarily embracing being called a point guard.
"It doesn't matter to me," James said. "I do whatever it takes for us to win. So it doesn't matter. I'm a ball player. I'm not a point guard, I'm not a shooting guard, a small forward, power forward or a center. I'm just a ball player. You put me on the floor and I can make things happen with whoever is on the floor. So, I'm just looking forward to getting out there with my teammates because it's exciting. It's fun."
