Can Anthony Davis become NBA’s best player this season?
Anthony Davis is already widely viewed as one of the NBA's top three players, and he's only 22 years old with just three years of league experience.
Might this be the year Davis emerges as the league's best? PBT's Dan Feldman pondered the topic, and believes it's a question of when and not if Davis eventually takes the crown.
LeBron James is currently the league's best player, even though James Harden and Stephen Curry are the ones who are coming off of MVP-type seasons. Davis is primed to take over, and may indeed do so one day. But he'll face plenty of competition among the game's young stars before he takes the crown.
This could be the moment.
LeBron James is on the wrong side of 30. Kevin Durant is coming off major injury. Stephen Curry hasn’t proven himself on this level over multiple seasons.
Everything is coming together for Davis.
Monty Williams helped Davis acclimate to the pros, but Alvin Gentry’s scheming can unleash Davis’ full arsenal of skills. Davis was built to run, and Gentry is installing an up-tempo scheme.
