Well, he is when he is fully healthy.
The sad truth is that Davis is prone to injuries that can derail not only his season but the season of his entire team.
Right now, Davis is looking great.
He has been playing with authority during the preseason games he’s participated in.
If Davis performs like this all season, the Lakers really could be back in great shape and on their way to the postseason again.
Every time Anthony Davis falls down feels like dropping your phone

However, fans are nervous every single time Davis takes to the court.
That is because they are always worried that he’s about to fall and hurt himself and once again miss weeks or months on the bench.
One fan summed it up so painfully perfectly on Twitter, stating, “Every time Anthony Davis falls down feels like dropping your phone.”
That definitely perfectly portrays the feeling that all Lakers fans feel every time Davis grabs his ankle, falls to the floor, or limps off the court.
Always Damaged Davis
The last time Davis was really healthy was 2019-2020.
As you well know, that was the last time the Lakers won the Finals too.
This goes to show that Davis really is one of the best big men in the league and an absolute beast when he is firing on all cylinders.
Will he be doing that again in 2022-23?
So far, we have every reason to believe he will be.
He has spent the summer working out, conditioning, and getting ready to play in all 82 games.
Of course, injuries can come out of nowhere and that’s just a reality that fans have to live with.
But they can always hold onto hope.
