The now-Los Angeles Lakers big man Anthony Davis discussed the team’s chemistry and goals, per Red Bull Hoops:
“Everyone has to be on the same page – the players, the coaching staff, the front office, ownership, everyone. I think we have a great group of guys – no one causing locker room problems and nobody who wants to go out there and be selfish; nobody who wants to showcase their skills rather than do what’s best for the team.
I’m not sure what the Clippers are thinking. But I know what the Lakers are thinking – and that’s to play basketball. Obviously, they have a great team, but we know that for us it’s going to be bigger than a rivalry. You know, winning a rivalry game doesn’t win the championship. So for us the goal is to win a championship this year,” Davis said.
This past season, the 26-year-old averaged 25.9 points, 12.0 rebounds, 2.4 blocks and 3.9 assists per game, while shooting at 51.7 percent from the floor and 33.1 percent from three for the Pelicans.
