Anthony Davis has a lot of confidence in the potential of the Los Angeles Lakers’ roster.

Davis is optimistic the Lakers can defend their title and replace the Golden State Warriors as the next dynasty in the NBA.

“I think when you’re defending champs you kind of hold that standard for the league. I don’t want to say we took over, because the Warriors won three out of four.

We haven’t accomplished that yet, but I think whoever the defending champions are kind of hold that standard of what each team wants to become. We have that target on our back this year. Teams are trying to match up to beat the Lakers.

It comes with the territory when you’re holding the title. We’ve been doing a great job of continuing do what we do and getting better at it to hold that title and keep it here in L.A.

Every night we’re going to get the other team’s best shot. We’ve seen that a lot this year with our team,” Davis said about the Lakers, via Lakers Nation.

For their part, the Warriors played in five straight NBA Finals (2015-2019) and won the title three times (2015, 2017, 2018).
