Laker Profile: Anthony Davis
“Every player has his own unique style,” Davis says. “Every
guy has his own individual style, so you’ve got to figure out
what is best for you. Once you do that, you just go with your
own personal style.”
Movie roles and fashion trends come and go, but the
numbers Davis puts up every night — 23.7 points and 10.5
rebounds over the course of his seven-year NBA career —
never go out of style.
Yes, Davis is a man of varied interests, but don’t expect him
to lose sight of his priorities. Instead, count on him to give
basketball’s most star-studded franchise a jolt of star power
that is grounded in reality.
“I am going to stick with what I do best and that is playing
basketball,” the multi-talented Davis says.
By now, it’s time for Davis to meet and greet the media in
his new hometown.
As Davis walks into the gym that has become a worldwide
broadcast center, his t-shirt sends a message that tells you
everything you need to know about him. It’s team issued gear,
but it could just as easily be Davis’ personal monogram, a oneword
touchstone that Davis has carried with him everywhere,
one word that is equally important whether you are making a
movie or playing basketball: Focus.
