Los Angeles Lakers star Anthony Davis is having himself quite the offseason.
Just days after making headlines for looking especially skinny in some new photos, Davis is in the news once more.
This time it’s for going absolutely wild at the club.
The video largely speaks for itself:

As do the reactions:
Instead of partying why not go practice, get healthier & stronger?

Yes ship him out, but make sure we recoup and Starting 4/5 and a starting point guard to run that second unit when LBJ takes a rest. Westbrook couldn’t do it. Rozier, Brogdon or even Schoder might be the guy. Just trade AD. He s not a top 5 player anymore. Others have passed him

After winning a championship in his first season a Laker, Davis has struggled in the subsequent two.
In 2020-21 he averaged 21.8 points (third worst of his career) and 7.9 rebounds (career-worst) per game over the course of just 36 outings.
One year later, in 2021-22, he averaged 23.2 points and 9.9 rebounds per game while participating in just 40 outings.
The talk of a trade go so real, in fact, that Davis personally felt like he needed to address it.
It will be interesting to see what the 2022-23 season will hold for Davis. Winning a title buys you some goodwill, that’s for sure.
Now that’s how you do a boat trip. https://t.co/aGUQVgY0QD

But not in perpetuity.
Davis will need to put together another strong, healthy and productive season this year.
Will he be able to do it? Time will tell.
