Heading into this season, New Orleans Pelicans superstar Anthony Davis will be the highest paid player in the league and has the huge responsibility of leading his team into a new era of winning. In a recent interview with Red Bull, AD discussed being the team leader who is still afraid of the dark and just 22-year-old.
“I’m afraid of the dark,” Davis says. “I can’t go to sleep unless the TV is on. I still feel like a kid. I’m having so much fun and my life is pretty crazy. But there’s a huge responsibility that comes with being the guy.”
Davis also spoke about being ready for the challenge ahead.
“I’ve grown a lot just in the last few years, but there is so much more expected of me,” Davis says. “It’s time for me to become who I’m supposed to be.”
Davis also discussed his desire to be the best player in the league.
“I want to be the best player in the league,” Davis says. “I’m going to carry myself as the best. I’m going to think like the best. That’s what I truly want. I want to be that guy.”
