Anthony Davis Has Hilarious Reaction To Epic Interview Faux Pas
January 5, 2021
The Los Angeles Lakers had a really short offseason. Players had 10 weeks to rest and prepare for the 2020-21 NBA season. Everyone needs a break, and someone got the best of it. For instance, Lakers big man Anthony Davis had to deal with a faux pas during one of his most recent press conferences.
Davis talked about Montrezl Harrell and his contribution off the bench. Harrell finished the night with 16 points and nine rebounds and went 7-for-11 shooting from the field. Davis also mentioned his use of his floater shot in the lane.
“You didn’t see my floater all last year?” the big man said. “I’m like—what? I used to do it all the time. But, yeah, ,e and Trez just had an argument about who has the best floater as a big. You know, my floater is—I’ll bring it out more for you guys, but …”
Guess what happened next…

Someone in the media crowd let loose with a floater themselves. Everyone could hear it. Was it real? Was it a joke?
“Are you serious?” Davis said. “Did you guys hear that?”
Davis got his hearty laugh and it was quite a relief after the bad game. It was somewhat bad for Davis. The big man was 6-for-15 shooting from the field and scored 17 games.
Lakers head coach Frank Vogel is well aware of the fact that Davis had a slow start to the season.
“I think we didn’t do a good enough job making sure he was involved in the offense the first half,” Vogel said. “We just got to do a better job of that. A little better in the second half. Just one of those nights we were stuck in mud a little bit.”
Harrell is pretty impressed with his teammate. He has words of praise for the superstar, and it’s more than obvious that Harrell and Davis have built a nice relationship on the floor. Newly-signed Lakers players fit really well in the system.
“It’s definitely a great feeling to have chemistry and the camaraderie that the guys have with one another already early in the season,” Harrell said, via the L.A. Times. “Honestly, the only thing I think that’s going to happen is that it’s going to continue to grow. Guys, it’s a great vibe. It’s a great energy around us, man.”
