(Audio) NBA: Anthony Davis Says He’s Not at LeBron James & Kevin Durant Level Yet
At just 22-years old and three seasons in the league, Anthony Davis is making quite a name for himself. The stat stuffer was selected to the All-NBA First Team last season, is a two-time All-Star, and is beginning to enter MVP conversations. In fact he’s being mentioned among guys like LeBron James and Kevin Durant but he says he’s not quite there yet.
“I still have a lot of work to do. I haven’t even got out of the first round yet, haven’t won a game in the playoffs yet. So there are a lot of steps for me. Them two guys are definitely unbelievable players but I know one day I’m going to be there, I’m going to be the best player in the league if I continue to work hard and keep grinding, keep being dedicated, keep being motivated.”
Davis is saying the right things, and he understands his ultimate legacy will have to include playoff wins and rings (not to mention MVPs) if he wants to be mentioned with the all-time greats. He’s still very young and has a lot of time to acquire those things. He’s only going to continue to get better. All he needs is the right supporting cast around him.
