Former NBA superstar Kevin Garnet doesn’t expect the Los Angeles Lakers to persist with Anthony Davis given the way things have fallen apart since he helped them win a title in the bubble in 2020.
The Lakers currently sit 11th in the Western Conference and are in danger of missing the playoffs yet again.
It also appears that Davis and LeBron James aren’t on great terms as AD noticeably remained in his seat when LBJ became the NBA’s All-Time leading scorer last month. The partnership has clearly waned and both players have been dealing with injuries throughout the season.
Garnett, who won a title with the Boston Celtics in 2008, reckons the Lakers will move on from Davis if they don’t get adequate production from him while LeBron is out injured.
“Bron goes down with his foot. This is the time when the Lakers are sitting back to see the Anthony Davis project,” the 15-time All-Star said during an episode of his Ticket & The Truth Podcast with former teammate Paul Pierce. “This is featuring AD to see what he can do in these two weeks to maneuver the Lakers. If this doesn’t really move anything…I think they come off the Anthony Davis project and move him this summer.”
