Anthony Davis knows the Brooklyn Nets will be one of the toughest challenges the Los Angeles Lakers will face en route to their second straight title.

Davis called the Nets ‘a threat’ to the chances of the Lakers to repeat this season.

“They’re definitely a threat. They’re a team that can score at will. They’re a good team. I think they’re the favorites to win the East since [James Harden] went over there. It’s gonna be a battle,” Davis told Rachel Nichols of ESPN, via Lakers Daily.

After acquiring James Harden from the Houston Rockets, the Nets have emerged as one of the favorites to win the championship.

Davis and the Lakers will face the Nets on February 18 at Staples Center.
