Anthony Davis Reveals Who He Thinks the Best Player on the Lakers Is
February 12, 2020
Anthony Davis and LeBron James are the best players on the Los Angeles Lakers roster. These two lead the team to the NBA Playoffs, and it will be fun to watch them win the big game.
But, media members are just curious, and this time Davis received a tricky question. Who’s the best player on the Lakers roster? The superstar made a break and gave his answer. Davis sees himself on the top, but he does recognize that the four-time MVP is the GOAT.
“I think I’m up there,” Davis said during an interview with ESPN’s Dave McMenamin. “I see the things that this guy, LeBron, does. What is he 35? 35, year 17, it’s unreal. And every time I mess with him like, ‘Man, you’re getting old, man.’”
He had a good laugh while answering the question. He shared a story of LeBron’s conversation with him about the Kobe Bryant dunk. The reverse dunk was in the spotlight, and it went viral. LeBron did his best to remind Davis that he has so much to offer.
“We joke about it, but the things he does in year 17 at 35 still amazes me,” Davis said. “So I’ll give it to him right now.”

LeBron’s season averages will do the talking here. His 24.8 points per game average this season is his lowest since his rookie year, but his 10.7 assists per contest are the best in the league. King James also adds 7.7 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game. He really defies Father Time. Let’s not forget that LeBron passed Kobe Bryant for third place on the NBA all-time scoring list. He also passed Michael Jordan on the all-time free throws list.
On the other hand, his younger
teammate plays elite basketball, leading the team in points (26.5), rebounds (9.2) and blocks (2.4) per game. This is Davis’ eighth NBA year.
LeBron and Davis lead the Lakers to a big win. The team has the best record in the Western Conference as they stand at 40-12. This is the second-best in the NBA, and the Lakers stand behind the Milwaukee Bucks (46-7).
