Anthony Davis says he is on the path to winning more at the highest level with LeBron James and the Lakers ahead of their season opener.
The Lakers are looking to defend their first championship in 10 seasons. By winning the 2020-21 title, the franchise will become 18-time champions, which would make them the most successful franchise in league history.
AD had a lot to do with the fashion in which the Lakers cantered to victory this year. He was the bedrock of their defensive schemes, their trump card against teams like the Rockets and Heat. He’s able to execute perfectly both in small ball as well as conventional lineups.
Davis has the potential to win an MVP trophy this season, and is being egged on by teammate Jared Dudley to pursue it.
Anthony Davis and LeBron James are on the path to success at the highest level
Anthony Davis revealed what LeBron James said to him after the Western Conference Finals:
“I’m very motivated. I want to do it again. When we won the Western Conference Finals, LeBron said ‘Just wait until you win a championship and you hold that trophy.’ Your love for winning just grows, and ever since holding that trophy I just want to do it again. You want to hold that trophy over and over and over, you get addicted to winning,”

He continued in the same vein saying:
“I want that feeling again. I want to be able to hold that Larry O’Brien trophy again. Become a meme again where I’m crying and people are using it for everything,” Davis continued, laughing. “But that was a good meme! I’m ready to get started again and I’m ready to get with this group of guys. Get back to work to be able to hoist one of those trophies again.”
