Washington Wizards forward Rui Hachimura had a couple of “welcome to the league” moments against the Los Angeles Lakers, as the rookie was blocked twice by Anthony Davis in the first half.

Coming a quarter apart from each other, Hachimura certainly now knows to be weary when going up against one of the best shot blockers in the NBA.

Davis, who averages 2.4 blocks per game for his career, was traded to the Lakers in a blockbuster deal this summer and has teamed up with LeBron James to create one of the best duo’s in the NBA.

Hachimura, only the second ever Japanese-born player to be drafted in NBA history, has made a solid impact for the Wizards in only his first year. He is averaging 12.1 points and 5.3 rebounds through the team’s first 16 games.
