Anthony Davis: 'I Got to Play Almost Perfect Every Night'

Adjust Comment Print

Davis sat out two games with a sprained right elbow before returning Wednesday to play 41 minutes in a 131-121 loss to the Warriors.

"Life isn't fair", Davis told Yahoo Sports with a smirk. "If we lose, it's on me". So, I got to play nearly ideal every night to give us a chance to win.

Davis, a five-time All-Star, didn't play Thursday night. "They do as much as possible to help me". Even with the Pelicans' improved core, including two-way star Jrue Holiday, sharpshooter Nikola Mirotic and early Sixth Man of the Year candidate Julius Randle, all eyes are on Davis. He tore his Achilles tendon last season and has yet to debut this season. We're not going to have money to sign him next year.

Davis has been entirely committed to the Pelicans organization in private and in comments to the media, but the recent history of the league suggests players coming into their prime will look to make use of it and make it materialize into hardware. That's why it took me a while to do it, because I had to get mentally prepared for it. "I'm here and whatever happens after that happens", Davis said, via ESPN's The Undefeated. I just go out there and play. "I'm here to be a Pelican, help this team move forward and help this team win a championship".
