Early life


AD was born on the 11th of March 1993 in Chicago, Illinois. He attended Perspective Charter School. He was very highly recruited and was the number one prospect of the 2011 high school class. For his college career, he played for the Kentucky Wildcats where he would lead his team to the National Championship, winning the NCAA Tournament’s Most Outstanding Player and other major honors along the way. AD was selected for the USA Men’s Basketball Team for the 2012 Olympics, making him the first non NBA player to represent them at the Olympics since 2004. He then declared for the 2012 NBA Draft.


NBA Journey


His performances at the March Madness Tournament garnered national attention and he was taken with the first overall pick by the New Orleans Pelicans. Due to his stellar performances during his rookie season, he made it to the All NBA Rookie First Team. With the Pelicans, he developed into one of the league’s best big men and overall players. He picked up many individual accolades on the way, but could not get past the 2nd round of the playoffs due to poor front office moves by the team.


He requested a trade and was traded to the LA Lakers where he would team up with Lebron James. They formed a dynamic duo, leading the Lakers to their first championship since 2010. Anthony Davis fell to an injury during the 2021 playoffs, killing off their chances to advance that postseason.


On November 13, 2022, Davis pulled down 18 rebounds and scored 37 points thus, leading the Los Angeles Lakers to a 116-103 victory over the Brooklyn Nets to end their five-game losing streak. He became the first player since the 1973–74 season (when blocks and steals were added as official stats) to have 35+ points, 20+ rebounds, 5+ steals, and 5+ blocks in a single game.
