3. The reminder that Anthony Davis is superhuman
If there are any players that the preseason absolutely does not matter for it is the superstars on their respective teams. While it is a great outlet to get geared up for the regular season, the number one priority in these games is not getting hurt. Period.
AD is just so good that he turns in good games at ease. Davis only played one half of preseason basketball in the first three games but then came out in the fourth and final game and reminded everybody that he is superhuman.
Davis is showing why this might be the first year that LeBron James isn’t “the guy” on his team anymore. The Los Angeles Lakers, moving forward, might be AD’s team.
AD scored 35 with six boards in 30 minutes on Friday night. He was playing bully-ball down low and in the post, which is typical for AD. But then he started to shoot the rock like he was the best stretch-big in the entire league.
Davis hit six threes in three quarters of basketball. That is insane.
When Davis’ shot is cooking there is no chance of stopping him. We saw it in the NBA Playoffs where he was the best player in the playoffs in its entirety and we see it in the regular season all the time.
Heck, right before the playoffs began last season Davis cooked the defending Defensive Player of the Year, Rudy Gobert. Simply put: Anthony Davis is superhuman and it was super exciting to see him back on our TV screens.
