Anthony Davis hopes for another chance in Los Angeles

Anthony Davis is hoping he gets another chances with the Los Angeles Lakers as he is confident he and LeBron James can lead the team again to an NBA championship. Two seasons ago, Davis and James led the Lakers to their 17th NBA title.

The Lakers failed to repeat as NBA champions last season after losing to the Phoenix Suns in the first round. This season was even more disappointing than the last as the Lakers failed to even reach the playoffs this year.

"I think us two can. We've shown that we can," Davis said, per ESPN. "I don't know that's something we just have to reevaluate in the offseason, upstairs, me and him talking about this season and what we would like to see next season and kind of just figure it out.

".. [We will] come together as a group ... to get back to championship mentality that we had our first year. So that would be a very interesting conversation just from the standpoint of what changed. I mean, injuries, but even when we were healthy, I don't think we were able to reach our full potential -- for whatever reason.

So I think we want to figure it out and just get back to that championship pedigree that us as players know we're capable of."

Davis hopes to be fully ready for next season

Davis battled knee and foot injuries this season as he played in just 40 games.

Davis' top prioririty is to get back to 100 percent and then put on a strong preparation for the next season. "Taking however much time off and then coming back and getting back after it and getting ready for next season," he said.

The Lakers' big three of Davis, James and Russell Westbrook appeared in just 21 games. "To not log enough minutes together is what hurt us," Davis said. "I still think us being on the floor together where [there is only] two out of three can win basketball games; it just didn't happen."

Westbrook received the most blame for how the Lakers' season went but Davis insists the guard can't be the only to blame for their poor season. "Russ isn't a one-man show," Davis said. "He can't beat teams by himself.

It's all of us. It's my play, me not being on the floor. Bron's play, him not being on the floor. ... Everybody. Coaches. Everybody's a part of the blame. ... Russ, it wasn't his fault."
