Lakers coach Frank Vogel marvels at Anthony Davis’ shot-making, calls it ‘ridiculous’
Los Angeles Lakers head coach Frank Vogel continues to heap praise on Anthony Davis. This time, he called Davis’ shot-making ability “ridiculous.”
Vogel revealed that he put Davis in different spots through different plays. And on all occasions, Davis showcased the ability to shoot the ball with confidence.
“His shot-making is ridiculous. When we put him in the right spots, you can literally use him anywhere offensively. Rolling to the basket, in the post, at the elbow, at the 3-point line, attacking closeouts, handling in the open court. When you have somebody that’s just impacting the game on both ends of the floor like that, it just really moves the needle,” Vogel said, per Anthony Irwin of SB Nation.
Davis, though long considered as one of the top players in the league, will be put under the microscope for the first time in his career. After all, he spent his first seven years of his career with the New Orleans Pelicans, a small market team that achieved relative success with him at the helm.
In the years to come, he is expected to don the legendary Purple and Gold jerseys. Not just that, he’ll also share the floor with LeBron James, one of the most polarizing figure in basketball over the last decade or so.
Given these realities, much is expected from Davis. If we are to trust Vogel’s words though, Davis appears ready to deliver.
