The Western Conference Finals will be a matchup between the top-seeded Los Angeles Lakers and the third-seeded Denver Nuggets. Many are considering this to be an easy victory for LeBron James, Anthony Davis and the rest of the team.

But, a three-time Super Bowl Champion and Pro Football Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe thinks the Lakers aren’t going to make the same mistake as their city rival Clippers, and underestimate a team like Denver:

“Let’s not act like the Nuggets aren’t a good team and if the Lakers were to beat them that they got a free pass. They just beat the team that everyone said was going to win the title. Give the Nuggets their credit,” Sharpe said.
