Anthony Davis: A Defensive Standout with Few Accolades

Anthony Davis was only on the All-Defensive First Team twice

“I don’t know what else to do,” said a confused Davis, who was selected to at least the All-Defensive First Team in 2018 and 2020. There were also two further nominations for the second team in 2015 and 2017. “I’ve now put this chapter behind me and I’m just going to try everything in my power to ensure that our team is successful and can win another championship. All these honors and awards “I’m done with that.”

A factor in Davis’ few awards is certainly his many injuries. In his twelve years in the NBA, Davis only played more than 70 games three times, with 76 games in the last regular season being a career high for the big man. At the same time, the Lakers’ defense wasn’t as good as in previous years. Los Angeles finished the season 17th in defensive rating.

Furthermore, Davis has only been nominated for an All-NBA team four times, and he was in the first team each time (2015, 2017, 2018 and 2020).
