Lakers star Anthony Davis gets his second ring … and it’s better than his first
Los Angeles Lakers star Anthony Davis tied the knot on Saturday, marrying his fiancée who is known only as Marlen P. Davis’ former teammate Tim Frazier posted images of Davis’ rehearsal dinner on his Instagram along with a few videos on his story, including one of Davis serenading his now-wife.

Little is known about Davis’ relationship with Marlen (assuming that is actually her first name), but the two do have an adorable daughter together named Nala.
Beyond Frazier, who played with Davis for two separate stints when the two were both New Orleans Pelicans, it is unclear who else attended Davis’ wedding. His Lakers partner in crime LeBron James has yet to post anything on social media about the wedding.
The wedding appears to have taken place in Los Angeles, somewhere along Sunset Boulevard, per Frazier’s Instagram location.
Davis will have about 10 days to honeymoon before he’ll have to return to Los Angeles for training camp prior to the start of the 2021-22 season, which tips off on Oct. 19 when the Lakers welcome Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors at Staples Center. His squad is currently the betting favorite to make it out of the Western Conference, but their chances largely depend on his health, along with that of James.
Last season, Anthony Davis battled injuries throughout the season before suffering a groin strain in Game 4 of LA’s first-round series against the Phoenix Suns. While the Lakers added an intriguing new piece in Russell Westbrook this offseason, Davis and James will determine how far they can go in the postseason. Their 2020 title proved they are one of the greatest duos in the NBA, but that means nothing if they can’t stay on the court due to ailments.
Davis shouldn’t concern himself with such weighty thoughts right now, though. Congratulations to the bride and groom.
