Faze Clan recruits NBA Ace Anthony Davis to their Call of Duty NukeSquad

Anthony Davis suffered from one of his worst NBA years in the 21 – 22 season. He had walked in with the expectation of playing the center position, which negatively impacted his jump. AD never knew that his biggest dream would turn against him.

As a result, the coach subbed him out for a few games before he made his comeback. However, the comeback didn’t turn out well as Anthony suffered from unnecessary injuries. Eventually, the coach again subbed him out for most of the season. It heavily affected the Lakers, as they could not perform up to the mark. Post-season, Davis was looking for a miracle that finally landed on his doorstep.

Popular E-sports franchise Faze Clan decided to sign the Lakers player to their NukeSquad. For those uninitiated, it is Faze Clan’s Call of Duty team that hosts and represents the franchise in multiple tournaments.

Both Anthony and Faze revealed the big news on Twitter. NukeSquad also uploaded a 22-minute video featuring Anthony getting a house tour. Later in the video, the squad jumped right in for some basketball, where the NBA star revealed some personal information. He told the squad about how he’d never touched a basketball post his injuries in the 21 – 22 season.

‘I haven’t shot a basketball since April.’
