Kobe Bryant finally speaks on the Anthony Davis-Lakers situation.
Bryant spoke with a Spanish outlet AS for an interview recently as part of his role as an ambassador for the FIBA Basketball World Cup. One of the questions he was asked about the Lakers’ pursuit of Anthony Davis. Bryant said that Davis is one of the best NBA players in history and worth trading several young players for. Here is what he said:
“Kuzma, Lonzo, Ingram … Are all three better than Anthony Davis? No no!. Ciao! Bye! Anthony Davis is one of the best players in the world. Not from now, from history. What are we talking about? If you can sign Anthony Davis, you do it. If not, agree. We have three players who are very young and who work hard. They are intelligent and must be developed. But if you can sign Anthony Davis … yes!”
Kobe insists that whatever happens the Lakers are in a good spot either with the young pieces that includes Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma, and Brandon Ingram, or acquiring Anthony Davis to pair with LeBron James.
