Los Angeles Lakers leader LeBron James spoke with reporters just before Game 5 of the NBA Finals series and gave his credits to Anthony Davis and his outstanding performance in the Finals.

King James also reminded how Anthony Davis blocked John Henson’s game-winning jumper from a Kentucky-North Carolina game – which was played on Dec 3, 2011.

“You look at his run throughout that March Madness, and he was just beyond the best player in college basketball,” James added. “Then you get into 2012 (at the London Olympics) when he’s a young Anthony Davis and he soaked up everything. He was not a rookie that came in and thought he knew it all or felt like he was National Player of the Year, national champion.”
