What did Anthony Davis end up getting LeBron James for his 36th birthday earlier this week?
For someone like LeBron James, it may be tough deciding what to get him for his birthday. Arguably the best basketball player to ever hit the courts, James turned 36 years old earlier this week and celebrated by making some pretty incredible NBA history against the Spurs.
For Anthony Davis, he’s quite thankful to have James as a teammate, as the two helped power the Los Angeles Lakers to another NBA Finals title last summer. It goes without saying, but Davis was of course going to honor James on his special day with a sweet gift. So, what did Davis end up buying for his teammate?
AD said he may get LeBron some wine for his 36th birthday, upon further consideration after first wondering “What do you get LeBron James?”
Of course, with a birthday this close to Christmas, LeBron said (in the walkoff) he’s used to getting the short end of the gift stick.

Anthony Davis bought LeBron James some nice wine for his birthday
If you guessed that Davis will buy James a nice bottle of wine for his birthday, then you’re on the money. Wait a minute, though… just some wine?
During the offseason, Davis agreed to a five-year, $190 million extension with the Lakers. With all that cash, the bottle of wine he’ll purchase for James probably won’t be the $7 one an average Joe would buy on a Tuesday night at your local grocery store.
Regardless of Davis’ gift to James, the Lakers are off to a 3-2 start this season and are the favorites to repeat as NBA Finals champions. Last season, NBA fans were treated to the great show of Davis and James working together during their first campaign with the Lakers. The two on the floor at the same time is brilliant to see.
Come next spring, we’ll see if the Lakers are able to win it all once again thanks to the two superstars. If they do, you can expect Davis to gift LeBron with loads more wine too.
