With each basket, rebound, and defensive play, Davis solidifies his place in basketball history, inching closer to further milestones. Following Nash, Davis sets his sights on surpassing the next legend on the list, Hall of Famer Earl Monroe.

Despite shooting 55.5% from the field and 25.7% from beyond the arc, Davis continues to elevate his game, showcasing his versatility and impact on both ends of the floor.


As the Lakers navigate through a challenging season, currently holding the ninth seed in the Western Conference with a 36-30 record, Davis remains a beacon of consistency and excellence. With the Lakers riding a two-game winning streak and Davis leading the charge, there's optimism for a strong finish to the season. 

Following their matchup against the Kings, the Lakers will face off against the Golden State Warriors on Saturday evening, with Davis poised to continue his remarkable journey. Reflecting on his illustrious career, Davis, the first overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft out of Kentucky, has spent five seasons with the Lakers, after seven seasons with the New Orleans Pelicans. 


With career averages of 24.1 points, 10.6 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.3 steals, and 2.3 blocks per game, Davis' impact transcends statistics, leaving an indelible mark on the sport he loves.
