VIDEO: Anthony Davis talks about what it would mean to him to be an All-Star
HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS — Anthony Davis at 20 years old better than Dwight Howard at 20?
As long as Davis keeps on doing what he’s doing, this simmering debate will rage on. But a better comparison for the New Orleans Pelicans’ young big man might be Kevin Garnett, whose size, versatility, length, skill, intensity and high-ceiling at his current age are reminiscent of a young KG.
You could even step into the deep water and present the case that Davis is even better right now than Garnett, a future Hall of Famer, was at the same stage of his career. Davis is already in the mix on KIA Race to the MVP Ladder, which explains where sits currently on the big man food chain in the NBA (at or near the top of most people’s lists).
Chris Paul retained the No. 1 spot this week but is being pushed by Paul George, LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Tony Parker in the top five. Kevin Love, James Harden, Davis, Stephen Curry and newcomer LaMarcus Aldridge round out the top 10.
