Anthony Davis’ big warning to competition
Concerned by the Opening Night, the Lakers hope they can count on a big trio LeBron James – Russell Westbrook – Anthony Davis. The interior star for its part reassured the fans, sending a terrifying message to his future opponents!
They may not have the honor of opening the ball, but they will end the first night of the season on a high note. Just minutes after the end of the inaugural match between the Nets and the Bucks, the Lakers will put an end to the Opening Night of this new 2021-22 campaign against the Warriors. An appointment both expected, but also feared by Angelino fans.
While their Californian neighbors have won the 5 games they have played in recent days, Frank Vogel’s men have not been able to win the slightest victory in 6 outings during the pre-season. Something to worry some observers at the dawn of this duel against the Dubs. The Purple & Gold could also find themselves lessened by injuries, with three players already uncertain for this shock.
Anthony Davis announces himself ready for the season
Luckily, no member of the Lakers Big Three should be missing. LeBron James comes out of a big performance against the Kings, while Russell Westbrook will be keen to silence the critics that are already falling on him. As for Anthony davis, his confidence seems to be good, according to his statements delivered following the defeat against Sacramento, reported by Jacob Rude of Silver Screen & Roll.
I feel good. That’s what the pre-season is for, to try to find rhythm, and that’s why I wanted to play most of the games. I played 5 out of 6, and tried to find that rhythm. I didn’t shoot well tonight, but I think overall I felt good about my shooting, my physical condition, my defense and things like that. So I feel good before the Opening Night.
When AD is in tune with his game and his body, the damage is usually considerable for the competition. This was verified during the 2020 playoffs, during which the Unibrow had displayed a stratospheric level. Will he manage to reconnect with this state of grace? He will be able to draw inspiration from his performance… against Golden State, a few days ago, where he shone with 20 points, 6 rebounds, 2 interceptions and 2 blocks!
Unlike last season, Anthony Davis arrives this year with pace and confidence. Suffice to say that the Warriors will have their work cut out for them to hope to stop it this Tuesday!
