Davis, who averaged 25.9 points, 12 rebounds, 2.4 blocks and 1.6 steals in 56 games with the Pelicans last season and who this observer deems the best co-star James has ever had, has a player option for next season worth $28.7 million. And every time he’s asked to discuss his long-term future with the Lakers, his answer remains unchanged. “I just want to focus on this year,” he’ll say (or something close to it). As one person close to him said when asked to explain how people should see the Lakers’ chances of retaining Davis here, “Just don’t f*** it up.”
Before he wore a Los Angeles Lakers uniform, Anthony Davis already fulfilled a childhood dream. He filmed Space Jam 2 this summer, which gave him an early glimpse of what it is like to work with LeBron James. Davis also gained more perspective on the time and work it takes to perfect something. “That was definitely frustrating — the ‘hurry-up-and-wait.’ You’re just there waiting around to shoot your scene,” Davis recalled in an interview with USA TODAY Sports. “But just seeing the way they take everything seriously and how perfect they want everything to be, it was cool. I’ve never been on set for that much time. I think it was a cool experience.”
