Anthony Davis said that he was approaching this season with the Los Angeles Lakers with an underdog mentality during media day.

"We're treating this season like we have a chip on our shoulder. We're the underdogs ... they're not talking about us, and that's fine. You know, we'd rather be under the radar," said Davis. 

The Lakers failed to make the playoffs last season, with Davis missing 42 games due to knee and ankle injuries.

Davis admitted his struggles but vowed to be more aggressive heading into this year.

"Be more aggressive. I started getting in my own head a lot last year. I don't think a lot of people know that ... Just knowing how much better I could have been."
