Anthony Davis ‘More Relaxed’ at Mini-Camp
(Anthony) Davis’s playing time on last summer’s Olympic team was sporadic, as well as limited, understandable since he was the teen-ager among the collected group of All-Stars.
This summer, Davis said, he’s more comfortable and more relaxed than he was a year ago as the newbie trying to blend in with the likes of Kobe Bryant and LeBron James.
“Going in, the first time last year, I hadn’t played an NBA game yet and I’m stepping on the floor with LeBron, Kobe, Kevin (Love) and Chris (Paul),” Davis said. “Now, you’re on your heels because you don’t want to make a mistake. You want to be perfect around those guys. Especially your first time.
“Now, I’m just more comfortable, playing my game, being more relaxed.”
