Steve Kerr thinks Anthony Davis is the next LeBron James

Ernie Johnson asked the panel on NBA TV’s Open Court: “Who do you think is the next LeBron?”

Steve Kerr thinks it could be Anthony Davis.  Watch as the former Chicago Bulls point guard compares Davis to Kevin Garnett defensively and says, “Look at what he did at Kentucky.”

Kerr gets it.

    AD can’t play 5 positions or score like Lebron. Drew, you’re killing me with these posts. I’d rather you not write an article at all, than to put this crap up here.

    2 What the hell are you talking about? They weren’t saying “who plays like Lebron” just who’s the next best player in the game. Truth is it’s Andrew Wiggins, but Davis definitely can be. He can be unstoppable to the point where every team brings double teams every time he touches it. Like Lebron.

    “Lebron can play all 5 positions” Bullshit. He’d be the worst center in the NBA. Also he’s nowhere near the ball handler / passer as Magic. He’s the best player in the League today. But Kobe overall is better. He can’t tie MJ’s shoes or even Magic’s. Magic played Center in a Finals game….and scored like 40 and won the game. Lebron do that? Or did he go play with 2 more allstars to finally squeak a title in?

    Lebron would be the best 1 2 3 or 4 in the game if he had to pick one of those

    #8 is too ignorant or too full of Lebron hater juice to remember/realize how much help Magic had in LA. All the great ones had to have help. Bird had it, MJ had it, Kobe had it, etc..

    Don’t be stupid, son.

    9) I’m not a Lebron fan, but he is one of, if not the best player in the league today. But to say he’d be the best 1 in the league is laughable. No way he’s a better point guard than Rondo, Paul, Williams, even Nash is still a much better 1 than Lebron could be.

    I don’t see AD being the next lebron, but I can see him being an amazing fusion of Durant/Garnett. Versatile scorer & absolute defensive beast. I’d take a fusion of Durant/Garnett over Lebron any day.

    Andrew Wiggins is the next Lebron. Ya heard

    Lebron basically is the 1 for the heat. If all lebron had to do was be a true point guard then he would be the best at it. It’s not like he didn’t average 30 10 and 6 last season

    And there is a reason that the experts say lebron is more magic than Jordan, it’s because he can get the ball around in a number of different ways

    Your an idiot……He is exponentially better than kobe at any point in kobe’s career…..Will be considered best player in history when he retires. I love the Lebron hate…….peoples hate blind them from the obvious…..he is on another level physically than anyone EVER!!!!! His jumper gets better every year…I think people forget he was MJ’s same age at 1st title and MJ could not shoot a lick until the middle of his career, he relied on athleticism. LBJ is athletically superior to MJ in everyway….bigger stronger faster.

    Could you imagine if lebron played when MJ did……..thank of the small forwards of the 90’s….imagine them guarding Lebron….other than pippen you know you are laughing….(chris mullin, glen rice, detlef schremph…… Im looking @ you)

    Think of how much more difficult it would be for Jordan to dominate now with the athletes that would be guarding him.

    Here is nba hoops world top 10 SG’s of 90’s

    10. Nick Anderson
    A player whose appearance on this list may surprise many. Anderson was never an all-star or all NBA player but he was a solid shooting guard who contributed to many very good Orlando Magic teams. He made an appearance in the NBA Finals, and the hall of shame in 1995 where despite being a very good free throw shooter, he missed to clutch freebies that allowed the Rockets to win the game and ultimately the Championship.

    9. Hersey Hawkins
    Hawkins is a player most have forgotten about, but he was a formidable scorer and a one time All-star. Hawkins was the team leader for the Sixers after they traded Charles Barkley averaging 20 points a game for three seasons before going to Charlotte and taking the job as a role player. Hawkins was always a solid role player and in 1996 he was a key player on the Seattle Sonics team which made the NBA finals.

    8. Joe Dumars
    The nice guy on the bad-boy Pistons, Dumars became the hero of the 1989 NBA finals where he captured the MVP trophy. Dumars was a six time NBA all-star and retired from the Pistons in 1999 to take a job in the front office. He was elected to the NBA Hall-Of-Fame in 2006.

    7. Latrell Sprewell
    One of the most talented players of the 90s, Sprewell had attitude problems which hurt his on the floor performance; most notably being when in 1998 he choked his head coach PJ Carlisimo. Despite these short comings, Sprewell was a solid player making the All-star team four time and making the all NBA team in 1994. Sprewell was awesome part of the 1999 New York Knicks which were an eight seed that made a run to the NBA finals only to lose to the Spurs.

    6. Jeff Hornacek
    A deadeye shooter who twice won the NBA’s three point contest, Hornacek was a key contributor where ever he went. He was a one time All-star while playing for the Phoenix Suns in 1992. As a member of the Utah Jazz he made two NBA finals appearance in 1997 and 1998.

    5. John Starks
    Offensively Starks was just an average player at best, but he was a fantastic defensive player giving players like Michael Jordan a hard time in the playoffs for many years. Starks defensive tenacity is part of the reason the NBA outlawed hand checking in the mid 1990s. Starks was a one time All-star while playing for the New York Knicks in 1994, the same year he and the Knicks made the NBA finals

    4. Mitch Richmond
    Some may be surprised to see him here, but Richard was the most proficient scoring guard in the NBA in the 1990s. His 16,173 points between 1990 and 2000 put him well ahead of Reggie Miller in that department and he has nearly 1,000 more points than Jordan. Richmond was a six time all-star with the Kings and Wizards and a consistent 20 points a night scorer with a career high of 26 points per game in 1997. The biggest knock on Richard was that his teams were always bad. The Kings made a playoff appearance in 1996 but lost in the fist round, but his last year in the NBA he did win a title with the Los Angeles Lakers but appeared in only two playoff games. He was also the 1995 All-star game MVP.

    3. Reggie Miller
    The second highest scoring guard in the decade behind Richmond, Miller was 5 time all-star and helped guide the Pacers to the 2000 NBA finals. He played his entire career with the Pacers and that may have hurt him in getting recognition because 5 times in his career did he average over 20 points a game and did not make the all-star team. Miller was also a fantastic shooter, he loved to curl off of screens and knock down the three ball.

    2. Clyde Drexler
    The Glyde is one of the most successful players of the 90s, he won a NBA title with the Rockets in 1995 and was 7 time all-star in the 1990s and made the All-NBA team once. He helped Portland make the finals twice, once in 1990 and again in 1992.

    1. Michael Jordan
    No player dominated the 90s like Jordan. Jordan did not just dominate the NBA in the 90s, he dominated the sports world and pop culture as well. He was the most marketable player of all-time, and is still doing premier commercials nearly five years after he last played basketball. Jordan’s accomplishments are well known, he won six NBA titles with the Bulls, was a 7 time all-star between 1990-2000, despite retiring twice in the decade, and won four of his five NBA MVPs in the 90s.
