When Anthony Davis was asked the player he is most looking forward to playing against, Davis responded, ( via Ball Don’t Lie )
But you want to, like, dunk over [Michael] Kidd-Gilchrist or DeMarcus [Cousins] — I mean, you were only there one year, you can’t have that many guys to play against,” Patrick replied. “You don’t want to go against LeBron [James] or Kobe [Bryant] or Dwight Howard?”
“Um, probably Kobe,” Davis said.
“Really,” Patrick said, hinting at a question mark but not quite getting there.
“You know, Kobe, he’s a monster,” Davis said. “So I want to just go out there and try my hardest. You know, there’s a lot of guys who can’t stop Kobe. So if I stop him, I’ll be one of them guys who can say, ‘I shut Kobe down.’”
“Be careful what you ask for, Anthony,” Patrick said, as Davis laughed. “He listens to the show, and he’s got a great memory.”
“Tell him I’ll be waiting,” Davis replied with a laugh.
It’ll be interesting to see whichever team Davis lands on, matchup against Kobe and the Lakers next season.
