“In the middle of the movie I don’t really like to answer phones and text,” new Lakers big man Anthony Davis said. And because he was mid-flick when his trade to the Lakers went down, Davis didn’t find out about the transaction from his agent who was trying to reach him.
Nope, since he’s 26 he figured he’d check Instagram to see what was going down. That’s how Davis found out he was going to wear the purple and gold. The news of a lifetime.
Davis was at a Malibu hotel, lying in bed watching a movie when he saw that his agent — who also happens to be LeBron James’s agent, btw — was calling. But Davis “just hit it” (ignored it) and then ignored a second call before waking up to the idea that the agent might have some big news.
Being traded to the LA Lakers to play with LeBron qualifies as big news. Wonder what the movie was? Davis can make a pretty strong endorsement for a movie that will hold your attention…
