Liz Cambage of the Las Vegas Aces believes she’s a young Shaquille O’Neal with a better shooting stroke and the female version of Los Angeles Lakers forward Anthony Davis.

The 28-year-old Cambage was asked what her play style is like. She initially compared her play to smaller guards and forwards but being that she plays the center position in the WNBA, she compared herself to O’Neal and Davis.

“I want to say AI, LeBron, Kobe and speak it into existence. My favorite players. Maybe like a young Shaq. But I shoot better. People say the female Anthony Davis as well.”

Liz Cambage, who has just played a total of four seasons in the WNBA, is seen as one of the most prolific scorers in the league.

In 2018, while she was donning the Dallas Wings jersey, she led the league with 23.0 points per game. One of her most remarkable performances last year was her 53-point explosion against the New York Liberty. She currently holds the WNBA record for most points scored in a game.

In her relatively short WNBA stint, the Australian has achieved tons of individual accolades. She has yet to win an MVP and a championship, but those are definitely in her bucket list.
