Anthony Davis will have to make up for it after his disappointing 2020-2021 season. It starts with a big training camp with the Lakers, and the first training sessions gave him some indications. For example, there is one thing he hates, and he has it made know to LeBron James and Anthony Davis.
No doubt strongly impacted by his long presence in the bubble and by the short recovery period before the following season, Anthony davis was well below its standards last year. With 21.8 points, 7.9 rebounds, 3.1 assists, and 1.6 on average, he had his worst exercise in a long time, which did not help the Lakers in the quest for the back to back.
And in addition to these figures unworthy of his rank of superstar, the interior of the Purple and Gold has been completely abandoned by his body, since he was only able to play half of the meetings of the regular season before relapsing in the playoffs , thus not taking part in the last defeat of the season for his team. It will therefore have a lot to do in the coming months to make people forget this failure.
To bounce back in the best possible way, AD has not been idle this summer with in particular a impressive physical transformation that left Frank Vogel speechless. However, after the first training sessions of his team, the interior is not completely satisfied with the behavior of all his teammates. He therefore wanted to clear things up with Lebron james and Russell Westbrook.
I like teammates who push me to be better. I don’t need any encouragement. I want to be pushed. I want guys to tell me when I do anything. Russ and I have a lot of conversations in the first practice about all the things we can and should do when we’re both on the floor.
This is exactly what I want in a team. I have a lot of guys who are constantly talking in my ear for certain things, and I can’t ask for more from them as a player who is always looking to improve and learn.
Anthony Davis doesn’t want to hear kind words after a mistake on his part. He still wants to progress and for that he must hear the truth, even if it is not always pleasant to hear. Russell Westbrook obviously understood the character well, since they exchanged a lot during the first training, which is a very good sign for all the fans. The mayonnaise is already taking!
AD is not the type to take offense easily, so he wants to hear the pure truth from the mouths of his teammates. This franchise will undoubtedly be beneficial for the whole group.
