Anthony Davis: I Think I Suck Right Now 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Jan 22, 2021 4:44 pm

While the Los Angeles Lakers continue to demonstrate why they're considered championship favorites with a 12-4 record, Anthony Davis admits he's playing below his standards.


"Right now, to be hard on myself, man, I think I suck right now," Davis said after finishing with 18 points, 9 rebounds, 6 assists and 2 blocks in a road win at the Milwaukee Bucks. "I'm not making shots. I'm not making free throws. But I think tonight my aggressiveness, just being a [post-up threat] and getting to the paint, allowed guys to get open."


Davis tried to be more involved as a facilitator. 


"My aggressiveness tonight," Davis said, "that's the only way I feel like I'm gonna get out of this funk or whatever that I'm in.


"I put a lot of pressure on myself to be a better basketball player every game, and that's what I'm gonna continue to do."

He's really not that effective , like he was last season in the latter half.
He is slow to start in every game, and his shot is not always there.

The question is, if he will actually state this, and step up? Or just leave it at that statement?
Stay humble
Don't assume anything
Play hard
Win the championship

he's just letting his shot get to his head and affect other things. his passing has been so good so far though

If he isnt happy he should just demand a trade to a single solitary team of his choosing to take the easy way out.....oh wait, been there and done that

Because NO is the ideal situation for someone like him... Right... Bad FOs deserve stars deserting them! You want your stars to stay? Don't suck for a decade!

He'll be just fine. This is just the normal ups and downs of an nba season.
Trust the Process it is our shot to be a solid franchise again, we are the originals we are the Philadelphia 76ers!

I dont recall criticising him for wanting out. Just for demanding 1 team
