Pubblicato il 15 lug 2019
Anthony Davis sits down with Rachel Nichols and says it sounds weird to be called a Laker and lays out the expectations for Los Angeles to win championships. He explains that he knew he wasn’t going to sign an extension with the New Orleans Pelicans, because he knew he wanted to be with the Lakers. Davis doesn’t regret anything he did to get to Los Angeles and says he does not care about the media attention surrounding LeBron James as they are only concerned about winning championships. Davis finishes by detailing his involvement to try recruiting Kawhi Leonard.

  • Parade? Tf my ass

  • Anthony Davis is an injury prone loser. He’s played on two winning seasons his entire career. Two. He averaged 65 games a year for his career. He demanded a trade to the lakers and basically told his teammates fuck you. You want a guy like that on your team?

  • If Anthony wants a championship he should go to golden state warriors his a dummy bye going to the Lakers yo broww play with curry if you wanna ring in ur finger

  • Lakers are the best kawahi Leonard you made a big mistake the Lakers are back championship run starts this coming season coming up

  • Lakers will win championship.

  • Why this man have a bat on his forehead

  • AD voice crack at 1:00 😂😂😂

  • Motivation should be trying to bring a city its first title. Be the place’s “King”

  • I love how he answered the FA question. She almost got him there but he was able to avoid it

  • Now I think they should use the last spot for another big man. They have all the shooters they need but they do need some more height so why not give Amar'e stoudemire the last spot.

  • Just shut up and dribble,

  • What’s wrong with this bitch throat

  • He fixed up his teeth. Wow

  • I've read n heard recruit this year more than I've breathed

  • he said he dont care about the media attentio that comes with lebron, just proves that kd is a drama queen and a crybaby

  • A.D another player that couldnt even sniff the playoffs. Nothing but nice stats but cant lead a team

  • The fact is AD is a soft player and Lebron is already old and on his way down. Nope, I'm not seeing the Lakers winning the championship this year.

  • The Lakers traded away a lot of great talent for this punk ass loser and he can't even give a straight answer if he will stay beyond one year or not. Get over yourself man, you haven't proven anything.

  • Too bad he not going to get a chip with LeHelp James 💯 facts

  • The Lakers are the biggest frauds in sports history. They do nothing hit poach talent from other teams and rely on refs to bail them out. The NBA has this infatuation with LA that just turns everybody else off of basketball. The NBA is a dying league, because unless you cheer for one of four teams, you are fucked.

  • Rachael is so annoying; how can you be so narcissistic yet so vile, makes me sick that bitch, fuck off

  • The funny part of this interview is that Rachel Nichols is asking him about an NBA 🏆, what's her accolades...😂 Most importantly, AD spent seven years in New Orleans and the team was not building a championship around him. I mean when the had Boogie and Rondo they were doing well. He did his stint and bounced!

  • psychology will tell you that when you look up and left you're accessing your memories but when you look down and to the right you're accessing the creative part of your brain 4:52 he already knows if he is going to resign.... HE did look honest when he said he doesn't know what the future will hold. Im thinking baring catastrophic failure or event he resigns.

  • 🌈Love Wins🌈

  • Go Lakers!!

  • Rachel: "What does it feel like to hear 'Anthony Davis, Los Angeles Laker?'" AD: It's different LMAOOOOO 😂😂

  • Don't know how to feel about this nigga man, pardon my French.. but damn you do all this to get to L.A. they trade everything away for you but can't commit long term.. what the fuck be wrong with niggas man?

  • Rachel you are one hot woman lol

  • Future laker hall of famer 💯

  • Good Guy! They should of got JR and Melo. Add CP so him and Rondo can iron out their beef Blessings

  • what’s the fuss, and why is he already being lionized? Don’t y’all think he should actually do something first?

  • Dwight Howard was a bigger star before he came to LA than AD. He actually led a team, Orlando, to the Finals. AD never did, and the talent level was about the same. Two playoff 1st round exits, including a sweep, in seven seasons. DH was All-NBA six times, AD has never been All-NBA.

  • Expect a very long lockout come next collective bargaining agreement. The owners have lost complete control.

  • I don’t think I’ve ever heard him speak before. That’s what happens when you belong to a small market.

  • I’m excited... gonna tray help my my career in 2k19😂😂😂😂

  • Anyone else think Rachael sounds sexy in this one

  • No to la

  • Wait until one of them gets hurt and the excuses will come.

  • I’d like to see Lakers win championship, idk why but I have a feeling they will have good chemistry tnx to Lebron.

  • AD sounding like he won’t resign in LA next summer.

  • That man look ready for a title run.

  • Listen I love AD. Huge Kentucky fan but they’re not winning the title next season. I guarantee it. They’re just signing random pieces that don’t even fit together.

    • Random Pieces? This is not the 2018, they just signed a bunch of shooters.

  • AD gonna get hurt the first day of practice, and sit out the yr to protect his future endeavors. Rich Paul will be behind him 100% LMAO

  • AD about to do the Lakers like Kawhi did the Lakers and Raptors LMAO 😂😂😂. If the Lakers win, AD gonna say at the parade verbatim "Y'all enjoy this.." ---(in his Kawhi voice)

  • Why Davis 😔😔😔😔😢😢😢😢

  • Hope all you lames, fall apart.

  • The psychology behind why some people are just liked no matter what and others are disliked no matter what is interesting. AD is supposedly so great but has only made the playoffs twice in seven years and to the second round once. Folks still love him tho. Harden on the other hand has been to the WCF twice with the rockets and almost to the finals two years ago but folks generally hate him.

  • How can anybody not notice how badly placed his piercing are 😂

  • Wax that shit off your eyebrows

  • If you dont think he about to have an MVP season your crazy

  • Okay he really needs to get rid of that Pelican above his your in LA bro go separate those Frida's💯

  • Clippers ain’t shit everyone dick riding kawhi because he beat a heavily injured warriors team if KD plays in that series there’s no ship for kawhi now he’s on the clippers with pg pg is one of the worst playoff performers in the passed couple of years and he’s starting the season with 2 shoulder surgeries and won’t play in the beginning of the season if you think the clippers are beating the lakers in a 7 game series you’re trippin

  • Heard the same words from kawai, look what happened haha

  • Crazy thing avout6 this is that rondo AD and Cousin all played for NO and made it to the playoffs

  • Am I the only one that would bang Rachel ?? Like my status if she look like she be wanting some BBC lol

  • may i know from the Clippers "fans", aka bandwagoners, how are they better than the Lakers this year? for the sake of argument, lets say LBJ and Kawhi are on same level, you think PG is better than AD? Beverley is better than Danny Green or even a healthy Avery Bradley? oh i almost forgot, who's gonna guard Boogie when he starts playing at 100% again?!

  • It will definitely be an interesting year for NBA in beginning as best paired teams start to sort things out... It might take awhile for that to happen or some or one of the teams will manifest their greatness & superiority early in season if team gels & works & flows together seamlessly

  • A.D tell us how Lebron Ass Taste

  • Lebron 2.0

  • Rachel Nichols voice sounded a little off, maybe she was sick or something?

  • Jordan and pippen

  • It's the mark if buddha. Skid mark of buddha . Cut that shit dummy

  • Who else felt what he was saying in the interview about being his own person

  • Kenton and Anthony gonna go hard 💪💪💪💪💪💪💪💪💯😭🔥🥳💯

  • He talking like he gon leave after this year

  • Damn Rachel, Is So Hot!!!

  • When he said "Honestly Rachel (exactly when he said that) I'm just focused on this season" he lied, you could see it in his eyes, the way they turned. LeBron better be worried.

  • Take a drink every time he says says ......”UMM”

  • Looks like I’m going to have to get ESPN plus

  • I’m am completely puzzled on why he just accepts that uni brow! He could get that taken care of in like 30 seconds but he won’t wax it or even shave it.

  • They coulda gave my man a shape up tho.

  • People be like: oh Kawhi and PG vs Lebron, it's a wrap for the clippers. 😂😂😂 bruh, keep sleeping on AD

  • Rachel’s part in her hair is a cum target for all the top to mid level nba players!

  • This guy its gonna shine on Lakers, smells good the next season

  • Lakers looking pretty good this season! 🔥🔥🔥

  • Shit is gona be so funny when they dont make playoffs lol

  • So cringy

  • Why is he not signing an extension right away?

  • AD needs to play mad this year, time to show he’s can be the Shaq to Lebron’s Kobe, As lakers fans we don’t need him to even take 3’s just punish everyone on the inside, and if they double him you got Lebron coming down lol and on wings Danny Green and Kuzma are waiting to feed on open treys.

  • He's a disloyal hairy ass nicker
