Los Angeles Lakers star Anthony Davis has expressed frustration after not being named a finalist for the NBA Defensive Player of the Year award.

Despite his stellar defensive performances, Davis was not among the three finalists selected for the prestigious accolade.

Davis voiced his disappointment, suggesting that the league does not favor him and expressing skepticism about his chances of ever winning the award.

“I’ll never get it,” Davis said, via ESPN’s Tim Bontemps. “They’re not giving it to me. The league doesn’t like me. I’m the best defensive player in the league. I can switch 1 through 5. I can guard the pick-and-roll the best in the league, from a big standpoint. I block shots. I rebound.”

The Lakers forward, known for his shot-blocking and rebounding abilities, expressed his focus on team success rather than individual accolades.

“I don’t know what else to do. I’m over it. I’m just going to do what I got to do to help the team win and try to play for a championship. Accolades and individual awards, I’m done with those,” Davis said.
