The Los Angeles Lakers obviously have to continue to believe they are a threat in the Western Conference, even if they have looked anything but in the first eight games of the season. Anthony Davis, however, might be a bit overly optimistic in his assessment of things.

Davis was asked Saturday about how other teams might perceive the Lakers in light of their 2-6 start. The big man offered up a fairly standard take about how the team is better than its record would indicate, but doubled down by saying that opponents still “fear” them.

Using the word “fear” might be a bit much. They are 25th in the league in points per game and sit in the bottom half when it comes to points allowed as well. They do not appear to excel at anything, at least so far, and it’s tough to see how that changes unless the current personnel do.

Davis is not wrong that he and LeBron James remain intimidating figures, but the supporting cast does not appear up to par. That is why the team seems to be trying to make bold moves in an effort to get something going.
