  • ESPN personality Stephen A. Smith is never afraid to fire off a hot take.
  • Smith got everybody going with a discussion centered around Lakers star Anthony Davis.
  • The NBA world was quick to react, and the consensus is pretty split on Smith’s take.

A few years ago, Los Angeles Lakers star Anthony Davis was one of the best players in the NBA. The Lakers won the NBA Finals in the Orlando bubble, and Davis was an absolutely dominant force.

Since then, Davis has had trouble staying healthy, and the Lakers have taken a hard hit in the process.

Well, ESPN personality Stephen A. Smith spent time discussing Davis and fired off a strong take — one that a lot of people didn’t exactly agree with.

So, Smith would take a healthy Anthony Davis over Luka Doncic, Jayson Tatum, Jimmy Butler, and Nikola Jokic. There it is.

Smith is never afraid to express his opinion, and he knew that JJ Redick would disagree with this take yet again. Nonetheless, NBA Twitter reacted to Smith’s take, and many were quick to rip Smith for saying these words.

Others were actually on board with Smith’s take, surprisingly enough.

Remember what Smith, said, this is when healthy.

Davis is an absolute mess to deal with when he is healthy, and if he can ever get back to that point, the Lakers will be one of the best teams in the NBA.
