Can any of you smart sports talk folks explain why Anthony Davis is so hardcore on not being a center?

Seems to be gearing up to be a Nets/Lakers finals matchup. Which means it will probably not be either of those teams in the finals.

Don’t think Suns will go as far as last season. Wonder how muh dubs will do with a healthy Klay. Hope Mavericks improve. Hope Charlotte does well. Hope 76’ers and Boston do awful. Clippers gonna clip.

It's not cool to be called a center. Tim Duncan started all this mess. Everyone knows these guys are centers.

lol, so play style has nothing to do with it, just tallest guy on the court? i guess Kevin Durant is the best center in the NBA then

even considering play style, davis is a center.

durant is not a center. probably has never played center a day in his life.

I agree with ^

But kd not 7’

Maybe lets make all 7’ be centers? Idk i am no expert. I just know AD is a center and doesn’t want to be.

KD and AD are the same height

Davis attempted 218 3-pointers one season, in 62 games. How many more does he have to take for you to acknowledge that he can play power forward?

what the fuck is a power forward, if AD is a center, despite playing high post, taking 3s, taking his man off the dribble, etc

manute bol once attempted 91 3s in a season, which was in the top 50 for attempts that season. I guess that means he wasnt a center.

anthony davis doesn't like playing center, but he's a better center than he is a power forward. it's why when they won the title, he played center 60% of the time in the playoffs, compared to 40% during the regular season. he plays center when it matters because he is the best center in the game and him playing the 5 is more impactful than him playing the 4.

no not at all.

anthony davis is a center who doesn't like playing center so he doesn't as long as his coach will let him. but he's not nearly as good of a PF as he is a center. as a center, he's a legitimate top 5 player. he's probably not even the best PF on his team (lebron).

what exactly makes AD a center? he was like 6'1" going into his sophomore year of high school and it's pretty obvious by his play style that he grew up as a wing player. so why is he now a center, when like you said, he doesn't really want to play as a center? just based on height? in that case, why aren't KD, KG, Dirk etc centers who just don't want to play center?

AD is a big man. but he's too multidimensional of a player to just say "he's a center and that's all"

There is a reason teams aren’t beating the door down to sign him, and it is not because of his teammates.

So?

The sixers want to trade him, it's not his responsibility to maximize his own trade value. It's actually in his interest to minimize his trade value. He's making $30 mil this season if the sixers want to just sit on his salary have fun.

Is the MVP race heating up?? Lakers victory WITHOUT LeBron with Russ going 33/10/8 with only 3 TO'S and only attempting four 3s!!


This game is statistically kinda nuts for 2021. Lakers scored 72 (of 125) pts in paint and only made 8 3s in an overtime game, again while scoring 125. And only 20 assists on 50 fgs

^^I think statistically it is an outlier game. But would be awesome if them or any team regularly put up those numbers…

Awesome. Russ is cool as hell and fun to watch, he would prob have rings if he ever developed a consistent outside shot.

I'm veering into 'Russ is living rent free' or something territory here but I'm mad I called him cool yesterday then last night he cried about a late dunk. He talks so much shit and regularly does the cradle rocking celebration but hes mad about that?

I mean prior to the dunk it was still a close game! It's not like the thunder were up 12.
