LeBron James compares Anthony Davis to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar with new look
Anthony Davis is going with some new goggles to protect his injured eye, even if he is far from the first Los Angeles Lakers big man to sport the look.
The seven-time All-Star Davis was photographed at practice on Wednesday rocking the specks. He had missed a session earlier this week after being poked in the eye during Saturday’s scrimmage.
