Johnny Davis has good reason to be busy. The Washington Wizards took Davis with the 10th pick in the NBA draught of 2022. The former Wisconsin Badger was picked in the draught lottery and will play guard in Washington with Bradley Beal. Davis was Wisconsin’s first lottery pick since the Charlotte Hornets took Frank Kaminsky at No. 9 in 2015.
Davis has won a lot of awards, including the Lute Olsen Player of the Year award and the Jerry West award. During the 2021-22 season, he averaged 19.7 points and 8.2 rebounds per game. He was also the Big Ten Player of the Year. Davis was named to the first team of All-America because he played well on both ends of the court.
The former Wisconsin player has been making a lot of noise off the court as well. The rising star was in a Taco Bell ad that ran all over the country, and he’s also a huge star on-screen.

The Taco Bell Commercial Augmented Johnny Davis’ Draft Night
The NBA draught night was the theme of the Taco Bell ad that was shown all over the country. At the beginning of the Taco Bell commercial, Davis hears his name called in the draught. But he leaves the event to try Taco Bell’s toasted cheddar chalupa. The ad is well-made and stands out. It got a lot of people talking on the internet, as comments started coming in.
Many users didn’t know that Davis was a professional athlete and not an actor. Several tweets said that people were shocked when they found out the truth.
Some people also talked about how strange it was that Davis was picked in the draught eight weeks after the ad aired. Fans are impressed by his natural acting skills, even though this is his first TV commercial.
Johnny Davis has worked with brands such as Mountain Dew and Jockey in the past. He is the spokesperson for the second one.
Davis was born in February 2002 in La Crosse, WI. He was a well-known player in high school, and his skills brought him a lot of attention. Davis played for the U.S. at the FIBA Under-19 World Cup in Latvia in 2021. His team won the gold medal because he scored an average of 4.1 points per game.
