Even before entering the NBA, Anthony Davis had attention from many teams and he was expected to go down as a lottery pick. As most expected, he went down as the first overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft.
Since then, Davis has been one of the top players in the league. He has won several accolades, including an NBA championship with the Los Angeles Lakers.
Recently an image about a phenomenal stat that AD put up in college, certainly proves how good he was in college.
Apparently in a single college season swatted away the ball 111 times! It was more than many college teams such as Duke, South Carolina, and Michigan St.
Well, this stat was taken when the season was still going on. When it was all said and done, Davis played 40 games in college. He finished with 186 blocks.
After his college career was over, AD was selected with the first overall pick by the New Orleans Pelicans. Although the Unibrow improves his game when donning a Pelicans jersey, he didn't succeed in terms of team accolades. If anything, Davis never said enough support around him.
As a result, Davis decided to turn a new chapter in his career and joined forces with LeBron James and the LA Lakers.
The move instantly turned his career around as he now has more than enough support during both the regular season and the postseason. Thanks to Davis' contributions, he helped the Lakers win their first title in a decade.
Unfortunately, the 2020-21 season was riddled with injuries for the 28-year-old. Hopefully, he will be back to his 100% for the upcoming season and help the Lakers reclaim their throne.
After all, the purple and gold are among the top contenders to lift the 2022 NBA championship. The team improved a lot in the offseason and now is considered a super team.
The only thing that could stop them is injuries. Since most of the players on the roster are NBA veterans, playing back-to-back games in the season will be a tough task. They would see the impact of them come postseason.
