Anthony Davis: “the Brooklyn Nets are a threat”

With twenty games played in the 2020-21 NBA season, the Los Angeles Lakers have shown that they are one of the teams to beat in the Western Conference. They currently have a 14-6 record (after a painful loss in Detroit), and they boast an MVP-level LeBron James at 36.

Although there is still a long way to go, and the Lakers have been at an excellent level when they press the accelerator; The team’s star power forward Anthony Davis admits he glances at what appears to be one of the Eastern Conference favorites, the Brooklyn Nets and their new trio of stars.

“They are definitely a threat,” Davis told ESPN’s Rachel Nichols. “It is a team that can score how it wants. They are a good team. I think they are the favorites to win the East since James Harden got there. It’s going to be a battle ”.

Before the Nets successfully traded down a superstar like James Harden, Brooklyn was already considered a legitimate threat in the Eastern Conference. Kevin Durant appears to be back in his league best elite form; And when he’s been on the court, Kyrie Irving has also made good impressions with his high level.

Now that those led by Steve Nash have added another former MVP to the roster, the Nets are arguably the most intimidating offense in the entire NBA. The main problem with Brooklyn comes from the defensive end. But the season is long and there is still work to do.

Despite the fact that at this time of the campaign there are other teams that could also easily reach the NBA Finals, we cannot ignore that a Nets duel against the Lakers would not surprise anyone to decide the next champion.

It remains to be seen whether both teams can withstand the rigors of such an atypical season due to the coronavirus pandemic. But a seven-game series between the LeBron-Davis couple and the Durant-Harden-Irving trio would be a success for lovers of this sport. (GG) (NBA Maniacs)
