Kobe Bryant says Anthony Davis can be “one of the greatest power forwards who has ever played”

Is there a more beloved player in the pros right now than Anthony Davis? Davis is universally praised and considered the next big superstar in the league. So far this season, Davis is averaging 24.8 points, 12 rebounds, and 4.2 blocks per game, making him only the second player in league history to average at least 20 points, 10 rebounds and 2 blocks at age 20 or younger. The first player in NBA history to do that? Shaquille O’Neal. Davis also has the highest player efficiency rating in the league at 35.79.

Davis’ dominance is so impressive that he even got a compliment from Kobe Bryant. “He’s an athletic Pau Gasol,” Bryant said of Davis last night. “That’s the best way I can put it. He can be one of the greatest power forwards who has ever played.

Whoa. It’ll be interesting to see what Kobe has to say after the Lakers and the Pelicans face off tonight.

    Anthony Davis is 21 though, not 20. Still impressive though.

    The question needs to be asked…..why did the potential best forward of all time only rank #5 in shots per game for Kentucky? Much like Dean Smith was the only man who could keep Jordan under 20 points a game, any big man is limited to garbage dunks in the dribble drive offense.

      Maybe if AD had taken more shots we would’ve won a national championship

      That’s a great question {sarcasm}. It totally sucks that he lead us to #9, and is balling for a max deal in the NBA {also sarcasm}.

      When AD was at UK, he was #JustGettingStartedBro
