A point guard in high school
Davis had played as a point guard during his first two years in high school and was trying to improve his passing, ball handling, dribbling, shooting and creativity abilities.

Notably Lil Wayne, and then Frank Ocean and Drake..
What is his nickname among friends?
“A.D” or “Ant” (Editor’s note: Wouldn’t it be a good idea to fix his nickname to “Ant-Man”? He is so hard-working and has unbelievably extraordinary physical and athletic abilities! Yep, this looks promising..)
What does he like to have in breakfast?
He is not a fan of enjoying breakfasts. He simply likes to skip that meal.
Also, he is not a fan of sea food either.
His love for New Orleans goes a long way back, even before the NBA

Acquired an Olympic Gold Medal before he took his steps into the NBA
He was a member of the US squad that became the gold medalists of 2012 London Olympics and he was the first American basketball player to compete in the World Olympics prior to becoming professional, since Emeka Okafor (he achieved the same in 2004 Olympics, but couldn’t manage to earn a medal).
Painting; he especially likes to paint cardboards.
How is he doing with the video games?
He likes to play many of them in his spare times. He is mad about Call of Duty.
Why does he wear #23 in his jersey?
As a native of Chicago, he copied the jersey number of his idol Michael Jordan and wore it in his all high school and college years. He still maintains that run in the NBA..
