The public has previously scrutinized Anthony Davis. The careerlong struggle with injuries has rendered the Los Angeles Lakers big man an unwelcome magnet for criticism.
This season, AD emerged victorious following an additional injury-plagued campaign in 2021-22. While guiding the Lakers to MVP-caliber statistics despite LeBron James being in and out of the lineup early, he maintained those numbers. He sustained yet another injury setback against the Denver Nuggets in mid-December, when he suffered a foot injury.
Davis recollected the poignant scenario that transpired within his residence subsequent to being apprised of the possibility of another extended absence from the season. According to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin, the Lakers star admitted to sobbing in a closet at home, which caused his 6-year-old daughter Nala concern.
“She whispers to my spouse, ‘Mommy, what is the matter with your father?’” Davis reflected.“She desires to embrace me but is apprehensive about doing so. My wife responded, “That’s okay.”“When I see her, I mentally tell her, ‘Don’t approach me with your hands.’” However, she approaches, quickly embraces me, departs, reclines, and declares, “Mommy, I will be back shortly.” “I’ve had an idea.”Nala hastily escaped, while Davis’s solemn disposition had already begun to wane as he reverted to his fatherly persona. However, in order to observe Nala’s reaction upon her return, he remained on the floor while covering his face with his palm.”I’m attempting to act at this moment,” the Lakers forward said with a chuckle at the absurdity of the situation.A few moments later, Nala reappeared and positioned a sheet of paper atop the heap of garments adjacent to him.While not everything is perfect at the moment for the Lakers due to LeBron James’ ongoing injury and their precarious playoff standing, Anthony Davis is faring considerably better than that low point.Subsequent to halving the initial eight to ten-week schedule, his supporting cast has been significantly expanded. Due to the fact that AD is not at fault for his injury problems, he is among the worst examples of how unjust standards can be placed on athletes. Thankfully, he has a daughter who has his back regardless of his condition and a strong support system.
