The Los Angeles Lakers star Anthony Davis has been a constant target of critics because he has been missing a large number of games after winning the 2020 championship title for the purple and gold.

When healthy, Anthony Davis is a top 5 player in the league, but that's the problem, he isn't always healthy, and for that, the NBA snubs him for the awards season and the All-Star games and All-NBA teams.

Now that the NBA board of Governors is expected to vote this week on a new policy that a team is unable to rest two-star players in the same game, sources told NBA insider Shams Charania. Many league discussions over the past 1-2 years have centered around stars playing more, and curbing load management.

This is set to affect many stars and teams in the league, but the low blow Anthony Davis would receive from the NBA is that he could not be considered a star. According to Charania "Under current discussions among team and league personnel, a star is defined by someone who's made an All-Star or All-NBA team in the past three seasons, sources said." AD hasn't been an All-Star of All-NBA team due to his injury record.

Anthony Davis requested help at the five-position

Despite just signing a 186 million extension, the Lakers star, Anthony Davis asked the front office for help at the center position. AD wants to play more on his usual role of power forward instead of being the team's five.
