Lakers’ Markieff Morris bizarrely calls both Anthony Davis, LeBron James ‘best player in the world’

Lakers, Markieff Morris, LeBron James, Anthony Davis

Los Angeles Lakers veteran Markieff Morris has weighed in on the debate as to who the better player is in L.A. between LeBron James and Anthony Davis.

Much has been made about who the real MVP is for the Lakers, and there are some folks who are siding with Davis in this argument. For his part, however, Morris appears to be rather uncertain.

Initially, Morris expressed his opinion about Davis being L.A.’s top dog:

Davis has indeed been so dominant for the Lakers for the entire season. The seven-time All-Star has taken his game to another level in the playoffs, and Wednesday night’s showing was no exception.

Not long after, however, Morris literally contradicted his own statement:

I guess we can say that for Morris, the definition of “best” is a bit flexible.

As for Davis, he made a bit of history while leading the Lakers to a complete demolition job of the Miami Heat in Game 1 of the Finals, with the contest finishing with a 116-98 score line. AD top-scored for his team with 34 big ones on 11-of-21 from the field. He also added nine rebounds, five dimes, three blocks, and just one turnover in 38 minutes of action. The scary part is that Davis looked like he was strolling against a hapless Miami side on Wednesday in his Finals debut.

James wasn’t bad himself, though, finishing with 25 points, 13 rebounds, and nine assists.

Depending on where you’re sitting, it would be easy to make a case for either Davis or LeBron as the best player in the world. While most would still consider James the top dog, AD is certainly making a case for himself with his two-way dominance in the postseason.

What matters most, however, is that the Lakers are now on the brink of winning their first championship together.
