Anthony Davis, Los Angeles Lakers, NBA Trade Rumors
NBA Analysis Network

It’s been a disaster of an NBA season for the Los Angeles Lakers. It’s been a disaster of a season for Anthony Davis. That’s not a coincidence.

It may be more popular to blame the Lakers’ woes on Russell Westbrook and his inability to fit with LeBron James, but Anthony Davis has had a sneakily poor 2021-22 season.

The former MVP candidate has only suited up for 40 games. His basic counting stats of 23.2 points, 9.9 rebounds, and 2.3 blocks remain impressive, but he’s shooting a dismal 18.6% from distance.

His defense hasn’t met its usual standard either. His 1.2 Defensive Box Plus/Minus (DBPM), while solid, is his lowest figure since 2015-16. All told, Davis hasn’t looked himself on the rare occasions that he’s even been able to get on the floor.
