Jeanie Buss Believes That A Healthy Anthony Davis Was The Best Player In The NBA Last Season


While injuries limited Anthony Davis to 56 games last season, his exceptional talent shone every time he played. He notched 25.9 points, 12.5 rebounds and 2.0 blocks on 56.3% shooting and was a pivotal force for the Los Angeles Lakers reaching the playoffs.

It’s not rare for Davis to deliver such standout performances, but injuries have been a hurdle over the years. Nonetheless, many fans and experts feel that he’s not only among the top big men but also one of the best players in the NBA when he’s up and running.

Lakers owner Jeanie Buss echoes this sentiment and added weight to it in her conversation with The Athletic. Speaking of Davis, Buss thinks there’s a solid case he was the best player in the NBA last season when healthy. 


“There’s an argument to be made that he [Anthony Davis] was the best player in the NBA when he was playing.”
