Although it seems impossible given his size and skills, Anthony Davis has had a relatively quiet offseason in terms of coverage. This was somewhat expected given the Lakers’ early playoff exit and being fresh off a below-average year to his standards, but the team’s moves this summer should suggest he is primed to bounce back in a big way.
With the report that DeAndre Jordan is likely on his way to Los Angeles, the team has completely reformed its frontcourt to look more like the one that surrounded Davis during the team’s championship run. The club also revamped their guard depth, bolstering their playmaking with the likes of Russell Westbrook and the return of Rajon Rondo.
Almost all of this is ultimately moot unless Davis is healthy, and is more engaged than he was this previous season. The question of if the roster — and frontcourt in particular — will help him bounce back brings us today’s episode.
On this week’s edition of Talk-O-Tuesday, Alex Padilla and Alex Regla discuss the Jordan report, the team’s new frontcourt rotation and why Westbrook’s value off the court could be as important for Davis than what he does on the floor.
