Anthony Davis says it's his turn. Not next. Now.— Rachel Nichols (@Rachel__Nichols) October 12, 2018
I went to his hometown of Chicago to ask why he's been saying he's the NBA's best player (better than LeBron & KD?), what he thinks the Pelicans can do in the West, and yes, those Lakers rumors. Bonus: some @AntDavis23 trivia too. pic.twitter.com/uWw2c9KuCD
Can you really blame him at this point?
He wasn't directly calling out Durant and LeBron, but he did admit that he thought he was better than them. While he said they were both great players, Davis believes he brings something unique to the table on both ends. That couldn't be truer as neither LeBron or KD are the rim protector or low-post threat that The Brow is.
DeMarcus Cousins or no DeMarcus Cousins, AD is ready to carry this Pelicans team to a new level. Without Cousins, he elevated his game in last year's playoffs, averaging over 30 points per game. It seems like he picked up exactly where he left off, putting up enormous numbers in the preseason.
It'll take a huge year for Davis to win MVP, but a block machine like this could easily win DPOY.
