  Anthony Davis: Many players ‘surprised’ by Dec. 22 season start date It should not be at all surprising that many NBA players have bristled at the notion of such a quick turnaround. Interestingly, LeBron James made his thoughts on the topic abundantly clear shortly after the league’s announcement.
