Lakers Legend Has Hot Take On Anthony Davis

The Los Angeles Lakers moved up in Western Conference standings. Players take each other accountable for the mistakes they make and the entire attitude shifted. The Lakers have the 8th seed in the West. Lakers legend James Worthy got honest about the performance Anthony Davis drops this season and fans will sure agree with him on this one.

“This is the best season I’ve seen Davis have in his career,” the Lakers legend said.

The Lakers big man averages 24.7 points, 12.8 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.2 steals, and 2.4 blocks per game with the Lakers this season. LeBron James is pretty sure that his teammate has to earn the Defensive Player of the Year award.

Davis has been relatively healthy this season, playing 73 regular season games. He suffered many injuries in the last few seasons and was forced to miss significant time.

Davis earned words of praise from the Lakers legend

Worthy likes Davis’ defensive power and the strength he provided in the win over the Cleveland Cavaliers. “I saw at least five or six times where he made people change their minds about taking the shot,” Worthy noted.

The Lakers don’t have many games left in their schedule and they better add a few more wins to their chart.

“I just like the way they’re playing regardless of where they’re going to end up,” Worthy said of the Lakers. “I hope they are able to move up and get out of that play-in situation but I just love the way they’re playing.”

Davis and his teammates understood the assignment and improved their performance at the right time. Everyone is having fun all while trying to secure their spot in the play-in tournament.

“We understand the moment. We understand where we are, the circumstances but this is what you want,” Davis told Lakers sideline reporter Mike Trudell during his postgame interview. “Obviously, we don’t want to be in this situation but we are and so we’re just making the best of it having fun and and just sharing the basketball, playing together and letting the chips fall where they may.”
