It looks like Anthony Davis has now changed his agents perception going into next season. This season was great for the Los Angeles Lakers. They were one of the favorites to win the NBA title this year and that is exactly what they did. With LeBron James and Anthon Davis on your team, it seems like this would be a pretty easy title. But it was far from easy.
This was a long season with everything that has been going on recently. With the death of Kobe Bryant and the COVID situation, it has been hard to deal with. LeBron talked about this recently.
“I am here for one reason and one reason only, and that’s to compete for a championship,” James said. “That was my mindset once I entered the bubble, once I entered the quarantine process the first two days. And then right from my first practice my mindset was to, if I’m going to be here, make the most of it and see what you can do and lock in on what the main thing is. And the main thing was for us to finish the season and compete for a championship.”
“So that’s just been my mindset throughout these — I don’t even know how many days it is, whatever how many days it is, it feels like five years so it really doesn’t matter. I’ve been as locked in as I’ve ever been in my career.”
Report: Anthony Davis Changed Agents’ Perception
But now there are some rumors regarding Anthony Davis and what he might do this off season.
Take a look at what The Athletic said about this.
“There were some questions (with Davis). He had never been to the finals, he had never been in a pressure situation and, as we’ve seen with the Clippers when a new team comes together and they get to those big stages, it’s very hard to come together and play well. When Anthony hit the game-winner and hit those back to back 3s, it was, ‘Wow, here’s a guy who’s on a big stage for the first time and he’s not even a 3-point shooter like that and he hit back to back 3s to win the game.’ It said, ‘Okay, maybe this guy is an alpha superstar who didn’t have the tools around him to be that.’ … It changes the ceiling and the runway for this Lakers team. Maybe when LeBron slows down Anthony can take over and be the best player in the world.”
Basically, he deserves more money and he is going to do what he can to get it. What do you think about this?
