Anthony Davis’ NBA season is over. He is out with a torn left labrum that has been bothering him for a while.

Over the last three years, Davis averaged over 20 points, 10 rebounds and 2 blocks per game. His season ending early gives him the time to protect his future. Davis may lose $24 million, but he will make millions more in his NBA career.
The big question remains about the 2016 Olympics. Davis has already shut down the idea.
