Fans of the Los Angeles Lakers are nervous about a lot of things for the upcoming 2022-23 season.
They’re nervous about LeBron James being able to play a lot, they’re nervous about Russell Westbrook figuring out how to work well with the squad, and they’re nervous about the young athletes and Darvin Ham‘s plans for the team.
And they’re of course very nervous about Anthony Davis and his health.
For the last few years, the Lakers big man has suffered a few injuries that have sidelined him and kept him out of far too many games.

That’s such a shame because he’s a phenomenal player when he’s in good shape, as evidenced by a new video showing him dribbling up the court.
In the video, he moves with ease, speed, efficiency, and control.
Many people have forgotten just how special Davis is on the court because he has run into so many problems but maybe the new season will be when he reminds everyone what he has to offer.
Just a couple of seasons ago, Davis was putting up nearly 30 points and 10 rebounds a game.
Unsurprisingly, that was the year the Lakers won their 17th NBA Finals.
Since then, Davis hasn’t played more than 50 games a season due to various injuries…and the Lakers have collapsed during this time.
Fans have been worried about Davis and his inability to stay healthy and strong for more than a few months at a time.
This fear only grows when they see him move as he does in the video above because it’s more apparent just what the team is missing with Davis out of commission.
Thankfully, Davis has looked good all summer long and has been working on his movement, his dribbling, and his shooting.
If he can remain on the court all season long then he could help the Lakers retain their greatness.
