Former New Orleans Pelicans, now a Los Angeles Lakers player Anthony Davis is breaking his silence
Anthony Davis won’t officially become a Laker until Saturday, but he already is getting comfortable in Los Angeles, spending time with new teammate LeBron James and getting acclimated to his new home. Read on…
CelebNSports247.com reports that Anthony Davis told The Times in his first interview since being traded that he feels right at home and love “The weather” and that “the city fits” him.
The newest member of the Lake Show, Anthony Davis is revealing his thoughts about playing in the purple and gold?
Anthony Davis told the LA Times:
Everything is feels like “it’s more slow motion, and that’s kind of how I am. … I live out here in the summers. L.A. is one of my favorite cities. I love to live here.”
Being that L.A. is one his faavorite cities, Davis agreed to waive a $4-million trade bonus in order for the Lakers to have the salary cap room to sign another star to a maximum contract.
Money comes and goes; your legacy is forever. I think how you establish yourself in the NBA and what you do on and off the court is something that people will remember forever. Obviously, our money is public and people know what we make, but at the end of the day no one cares about how much money you make.
Anthony Davis is not going to be a great basketball player because of the amount of money he makes, it’s going to be about what he achieved on the court and also off the court. That’s all part of my legacy, and I think that’s way more valuable than any monetary value.
As for the post of LeBron and Davis wearing Lakers jersey’s here is what he had to say:
It was cool. I always looked up to him. As a kid, [James] and Michael Jordan were the two guys I [admired]. I didn’t get a chance to watch Michael Jordan live, but I watched LeBron a lot after he entered the league and he was the guy that I looked up to.
James agreed to wear 6 next season, leaving 23 to Davis.
