“When you look at LeBron, every year you know he’s going to be great and his team is going to have a chance to win the title,” Davis said. “From here on out, I want to be in that conversation every year. Not every other year. Not every few years. Every year. If that’s going to happen, we’re going to have to win, and I’m going to have to be the most dominant player.” This was simply not the way Davis talked or felt when he was 21 or 22. But he’ll soon be 26, and this is his seventh year. This actually might be the beginning of his prime. He’s making statements like this not because he wants to create a sound bite or launch a marketing campaign, but because he has raised his expectations. It’s not lip service; his play shows that.
