The six-time NBA All-Star won’t officially join the Lakers until Saturday, but he already is getting comfortable in Los Angeles, spending time with new teammate LeBron James and getting acclimated. “The city fits me,” Davis said. He didn’t wander from his new home when he was asked to name his all-time NBA starting five. “One would be Magic (Johnson),” Davis said. “Two would be Kobe (Bryant), three would be LeBron, I would be four, and five would probably be the most dominant player to ever play the game, Shaq (O’Neal).”

Ivanisevic spent several weeks before the tournament at Niki Pilic Tennis Academy in Germany, where Djokovic “spent quite a lot of time” between age of 12 and 16. “I had the permission to approach him while he was training and to bring him some snacks because he was hungry, training a lot. … Didn’t he tell you that was essential for his win here in Wimbledon, me bringing him the snacks?”
