When healthy, Anthony Davis is one of the best players in the league and a dominant big man who can play both the PF and the C positions. There is no doubt that he's an extremely talented and versatile player, and he has shown that he can be a key part of a championship team in the past.
Despite his talent and ability, the last two seasons have been subpar for Anthony Davis, and his production dropped. Part of that is due to continuous injuries. If he avoids them, he could potentially get back to being a superstar player.
Kevin Garnett has recently challenged Anthony Davis, suggesting that the big man should try to win the 2022-23 MVP. He also stated that Anthony Davis should come into camp "better in shape than anybody and everybody".
I'm talking to AD right now... Bro get lost. Go to Hawaii somewhere. When you come into camp, come in to camp better in shape than anybody and everybody. That's what you should be focuse on. You should go for the MVP for the 2022-23 seaosn... That is my OG advice to AD... It's his turn to carry the torch... AD came to the Lakers to be an MVP, to take the torch from bro and carry. So this what we on.
There is no doubt that the Los Angeles Lakers will need the best version of Anthony Davis if they are to get to the playoffs and potentially win the championship next season. Davis himself has admitted that he knows he's elite when healthy, but the key is simply not getting injured.
The Los Angeles Lakers are a team that has made some moves in free agency, adding some younger athletic defensive-minded players such as Troy Brown Jr. and Lonnie Walker to their roster. They're clearly going with a defensive-minded approach next season, and Anthony Davis will definitely be a big part of that. We'll have to wait and see if that pays off for them.
