Anthony Davis: Net worth, salary, and endorsements
Anthony Davis currently plays for the Los Angeles Lakers in the National Basketball Association (NBA). He started his career in the league with New Orleans Pelicans, or New Orleans Hornets as it was known then.
Born March 11, 1993, Davis became the 2012 NBA Draft's first overall pick after just one season of college basketball for the University of Kentucky. Moreover, it just took him one more year to become an NBA all-star.
He made his first playoff appearance in 2015. In the next season, he signed a five-year, $145 million contract extension with the Pelicans. However, a few months into the season, Davis' season ended due to shoulder and knee injuries.
Davis has several tattoos on his body, a few visible while playing ball. Notably, he has a tattoo of Mamba as a tribute to Kobe Bryant.
Anthony Davis and Los Angeles Lakers
After Magic Johnson brought in LeBron James to the Lakers, he also made attempts to bring Anthony Davis to LA. After failing to sign him during the 2018/19 season, Davis requested a trade with the Pelicans. In the following off-season, the Lakers signed Davis to form an enviable duo of James and Davis. Together, they led the Lakers to the franchise's 17th NBA championship in 2020. It was Davis's first championship.
Ever since that victory, Davis' career has been marred due to multiple injuries. Despite a disappointing season in which the Lakers missed the Playoffs, the front office hopes that the team can make a comeback. Given how successful his partnership with LeBron James has been, AD will hope to add more championships and laurels to his trophy cabinet. Although the last couple of seasons have been injury prone for him, a terrific comeback is on the cards.
