Finally, the long-awaited Davis returns.
According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on the 21st (Korean time), Anthony Davis will return from an away game in Boston on the 29th. Davis could come back sooner, but he is said to be expected to return before Boston.
The return of Davis to the LA Lakers is a thousand and one army. The Lakers, who are recording 1 win and 4 losses in the last 5 games, are struggling with the weight under the goal. Lebron James is still alive and well, and even Russell Westbrook has been in good shape lately, but he is lacking a bit. Thomas Bryant is playing as the starting center and filling Davis’ void as much as possible, but it is true that it is not enough. Coach Davin Hamm said that when Davis returns, he will use a big lineup that uses Bryant and Davis at the same time. 스포츠토토
Davis is averaging 27.4 points, 12.1 rebounds and 2.1 blocks this season. Prior to his injury, Davis had performed so well that his name was mentioned in the MVP nomination. If he continues his pre-injury performance after returning from injury, the Lakers will be able to gain wings again.
Davies has been so good at his performance that his individual awards are worth a shot as well. In the all-star voting tally announced on the 20th, Davis received 3.83 million votes, ranking third in the Western Conference frontcourt. He also deserves an All-NBA team shot. He is a performance that can be selected enough for the third team after Joel Embiid (Philadelphia 76ers) and Nikola Jokic (Denver Nuggets).
One of the most dominant players in the league, Davis’ only weakness is his health. The most important thing for the Lakers is that Davis, who has returned, does not get hurt again.
