Anthony Davis is one of the biggest names in Basketball right now and for good reason. The powerful Power Forward has made a name for himself for his immense display in the centre as well as the defence.
After an impressive college career at Kentucky, he was picked up by the New Orleans Hornets in the 2012 NBA Draft as the 1st overall pick. And he has gone on to have a successful 9-year-long career since then, with many more years to come in the future.
Davis has come to acquire a fair few nicknames during his playing career, but the two that have stuck are ‘The Brow’ and ‘AD’. The former refers to his unibrow that has come to become so iconic, and the latter is the first letter of his first and last name.

Anthony Davis is a giant on the court, with speed, power, and agility all in abundance with the 208cm Power Forward who also sports a wingspan of an eye-watering 2.27m. Davis started out his college basketball career by committing to the Kentucky Wildcats.
With them, he won the NCAA Championship in 2012 where he was also the Blocks leader, a statistic that he excels in wherever he goes. Later on, the Hornets used their 1st pick in the 2012 NBA Draft to bring him to New Orleans. His rookie season saw him as a pick and roll threat on offense.
But he bulked up pretty heavily in the next season and under the banner of the New Orleans Pelicans, played out a memorable season which saw him become the youngest player in franchise history to record 25 points and 15 rebounds in one game while also making the All-Star team once the season concluded.
While being one of the best players in the franchise during his time at the Pelicans, Davis never really had the success he deserved, making the NBA playoffs just twice during his time there. So, it was to no one’s surprise when he announced that he did want to extend his stay in New Orleans in 2018.
In July 2019, the Los Angeles Lakers traded him for Lonzo Ball, Josh Hart, Brandon Ingram and three first-round draft picks, which included the Lakers’ number 4 overall selection in the 2019 NBA draft. And it was here that Davis finally had that Championship ring that he craved as he and LeBron James set the playoffs alight.
