Anthony Davis plays professional basketball for the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA. He is a power forward and center. Davis has been named an All-Star eight times and has been named to both the All-NBA First Teams and the NBA All-Defensive Teams four times each. He was part of the Lakers NBA championship-winning team in 2020.
Born Anthony Marshon Davis Jr. on March 11, 1993, in Chicago, Illinois, he was raised by his parents, Anthony Davis Sr., and Erainer Davis, along with his twin sister, Antoinette, and his older sister, Lesha. Lesha was also a basketball player and played for Daley College.
He went to Perspectives Charter School, where he attended the Joslin campus, which houses grades six through twelve. The school is known for its academics, but it lacked a strong athletics program or even a gymnasium. His middle school team had to practice at a local church.
Both of his parents were over six feet tall, giving him his trademark height. He had reached six feet tall by his freshman year in high school, and six feet four inches tall by the end of his sophomore year. At six feet, eight inches tall, Davis was still largely unnoticed during his junior year until Scout.com rated him as the number one prospect in his class.
Davis received offers from Ohio State University, Syracuse, DePaul University, and the University of Kentucky. He committed to the University of Kentucky in August of 2010, where he only played for one year. During his year at the University of Kentucky he broke and established many records, as well, as helped to lead his team to the SEC Championship title and a national title.
At the time he left college, both CNBC and the Today Show reported that he intended to obtain a federal trademark registration for the phrase “Fear the Brow,” as he has a signature unibrow. After that report, a shop owner in Kentucky claimed to have already obtained a federal trademark registration for the phrase. Although litigation was expected over this, nothing ever came of the situation.
He was a member of the United States 2012 Olympic basketball team. He helped the team to go undefeated and win the gold medal over Spain, in London. He declared for the draft after the Olympic games. He was drafted in the number one position by the New Orleans Pelicans (at the time, named the Hornets). Although he suffered a concussion and shoulder injury during his rookie season, he played well and was part of the Rising Stars Challenge that took place during the NBA All-Star Game weekend. A third injury, a left knee medial collateral ligament (MCL) sprain, and severe bone bruise ended his season. He was awarded NBA All-Rookie First Team honors for that season. Although he also faced injuries his second year, he was named a Rising Stars Challenge participant and was selected to play in the NBA All-Star Game. He also led the NBA in blocked shots per game that year.
As a member of the US National Basketball Team in 2014, he won a gold medal at the FIBA Basketball World Cup over Serbia.
His 2015 season was very successful, seeing him average 24.4 points, 10.2 rebounds, 2.9 blocks per game. He was selected for the 2015 NBA All-Star Game but was unable to play in it due to injury. This season also saw his first playoff berth. Although he would start the next season strong, it also ended prematurely due to a torn labrum in his left shoulder, as well as a knee injury.
Davis returned to have a successful season in 2016-2017. He was once again selected for the NBA All-Stars Game and the NBA All-Star Weekend Skills Challenge. Davis set a new Pelicans record by being the first player in the franchise’s history to score 2,000 points in a season. In his next season, he performed equally well and was once again selected for the NBA All-Star Game. He made his second playoff appearance and was awarded All-NBA First Team honors for the third time. He was held out of much of the 2018-2019 season because of a public trade request, although he did finish the season with the team. Davis was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers in July of 2019. He had a strong debut with the Lakers and after a few games became the first Laker to have a 40-point and 20-rebound game in almost twenty years. He won an NBA Championship with the Lakers in 2020, making him the first player to win that title as well as an Olympic gold medal, a FIBA World Cup gold medal, and an NCAA title.
Davis has an endorsement deal with Nike and a partnership with Ruffles. Forbes named him as the world’s fortieth highest-paid athlete. In 2017, he obtained a federal trademark registration for “Smith & Graham” to be used with clothing items such as shirts, socks, and hats. In 2020, he filed a federal trademark application for “Bodega the Boss” for use in marketing and promotion of performing artists.
Anthony Davis is still an active player for the Lakers. He resides in Bel Air Crest, Los Angeles, California. It is estimated that Davis’ net worth is around $36 million.
