  • honest has two MVPs zero titles through seven seasons in the n B A.

  • That's the exact place that LeBron James was then at this point in his career.

  • Now we go to number two LeBron James teammate Anthony Davis.

  • So the Brown led the Lakers and points and rebounds last season.

  • Davis was a force for the Lakers during last season's run to the championship.

  • Became a clutch by hitting one of the biggest shots of the playoffs, a buzzer beating three point shot to defeat the Nuggets game, too, off the Western Conference finals.

  • Stephen A.

  • Who would you rather have in the postseason?

  • This one's tough A D or Yanis A D.

  • That's not even hard for me because Jonah's has to show me he could hit perimeter shots, which he hasn't shown me in the postseason.

  • I know a D could do that and, oh, by the way, Max to piggyback off KP getting on you just a few seconds ago.

  • Basically, what he's reminding you of is the fact that he and I picked Miami when you pick the Milwaukee because you was raving about Chris Middleton when you pick the Milwaukee and obviously that then proved to be correct.

  • Now, getting back to my point here.

  • Yanis is a man child in the regular season, but come postseason time.

  • When did I say this all the time?

  • Come to postseason teams get back on defense.

  • They force you to be, ah, half court.

  • One of the reasons why we raved and KPU could co sign this.

  • One of the reasons we raved so much about Show town with Earvin Magic Johnson with worthy on one wing Byron Scott on another Cooper trailing stuff like that where we used to go off about that and we loved it so much.

  • We didn't just marvel at the Lakers and Magic Johnson because of the fast break.

  • We marveled at the fact that the fastbreak never left them, no matter what defense has tried to do.

  • Some how some way because of the greatness of Magic Johnson, you could always push the ball up the court, and you will always in attract me.

  • And that's what you marveled about because that doesn't usually happen.

  • And so, as a result of that, let's transition to the modern day age with the Greek freak in Milwaukee, you don't really have a situation with Eric Bledsoe and those boys at the time when you were able to push the ball up the floor the way that you would like to, because that's when the honest is really lethal in the open court.

  • It's not to say that he can't do stuff in the half court, but not to the degree of his danger of how dangerous he is in the open court.

  • So they came back on.

  • They get back on defense, you become a half court player.

  • If you don't have a perimeter shot, there's nothing you could dio.

  • What makes Anthony Davis so great inside or out?

  • It doesn't matter.

  • He could play with his back to the basket.

  • He could play facing the basket.

  • He could drive to the whole, or he could pull up from 17.

  • Or he could pull up from 19 and beyond.

  • It doesn't matter.

  • The arsenal of his offensive attack is better than that of the Greek freak.

  • Plus, he's a rim protector and a shot blocker and a rebounder when he wants to be.

  • Anthony Davis is the real deal and I would take him over the Greek freak without question I understand those arguments.

  • Um, he's more well rounded.

  • Stephen A.

  • You tend to like those kind of players in the playoffs you like in order of preference.

  • K d a.

  • D.

  • Honest because that's the descending order off, like how well rounded their games are.

  • But sometimes the Dukan do certain things so well that even if they're not as well rounded, they're more valuable.

  • I had Andre Snellings of ESPN fame Stephen A.

  • Who is also a neural engineer.

  • I believe he's like, you know, the very, very smart guy and knows the basketball analytics on my radio show, The Max Kellerman Show 2 p.m. Eastern, by the way, on ESPN Radio ESPN Plus.

  • And he was saying he taking honest, he take Yannis, and it's not a difficult choice for him.

  • And he said, because Yanis, when you look at how he makes his teammates, yeah, like a D can compile stats and he's great, no doubt about it, and all the reasons you said about him are correct.

  • But Yanis can also elevate those around him because he's an exceptional passer with court vision because of his handles.

  • Given his size.

  • No, he can't shoot it like a D.

  • Although again a day is a better shooter than Yanis.

  • Is he a way better shooter than you?

  • Honest.

  • He's a better shooter.

  • Yeah, this is a step below that, but he's not.

  • It's not like you're talking about Ben Simmons.

  • You gotta put him in the dunkers because he can't shoot it all.

  • If you leave him alone, you could knock down a shot.

  • Um, when you look at the kind of force Yannis is on a court right now, going back to our previous argument, you guys were being heavily influenced by the fact that you just saw a d play with LeBron.

  • If you put Yanis with LeBron, you would say this.

  • Do it.

  • It's impossible.

  • Like just like the Lakers are now.

  • They would not lose anything if you swapped out a did with Yannis.

  • And if push came to shove, I'm taking Yanis that that's not true, man.

  • First of all, to me, LeBron and Yannis both need the ball in their hands to be dominant, meaning that they can't play off the ball.

  • Anthony Davis could play off the ball.

  • And Max, I don't know what analytics and I've been on your top, your radio show, and I love coming on there and handing you Els like I'm doing today.

  • But if you're gonna sit up here and tell me that is not Night Dave, between Anthony Davis and Yannis, you're tripping, Anthony Davis, Skill said.

  • It's something that we have never seen before.

  • The closest thing to it was maybe Kevin Garnett, and that's my brother.

  • I played with him.

  • When you look at Anthony Davis, it is more to his package than just being able to shoot better than Yanis.

  • He has a better handle than Yonas.

  • He has better post moves.

  • He has the wiggle and you talk about a D, and you talk about God is in this passing but could drop dimes when he's needed to.

  • He know how to pass out of double teams.

  • He know how to drive and kick.

  • Excuse me in the in the NBA Finals and in the bubble last season, did we not see him throwing live after live to Dwight Howard and JaVale McGee on big too big passing when he was watching the ball in the pocket?

  • Pastor, Pastor Hey, don't get it twisted.

  • Janette's just had better faster than you notice.

  • I don't think more than Anthony Davis.

  • Yes.

  • Oh, my God.

  • Yeah.

  • Just learned how to find that for the past this season.

  • Listen, listen, I know we gotta I know we gotta move on.

  • But a couple of things.

  • Number one Anthony Davis, I believe, is a better passer than Yanis.

  • He definitely is a better ball handler, Dan Yonas.

  • And last but not least, Max.

  • Just a little bit of advice because you've been doing radio for years, and I know you know what you're doing because you are pro, But in terms of ratings, you might not wanna have the analytics dudes on.

  • That's all I'm saying.

  • That's all I'm saying.

  • The analytics dudes don't mean any way respect, but that ain't gonna help you in the relics, bro.

  • Ain't gonna help you.

  • The ratings, not the analyst with that, Not the analytics.

  • Trust me on that.

  • Thanks for watching ESPN on YouTube for live streaming sports and premium content.
