Richard Jefferson didn’t mince his words about the superstar of the Los Angeles Lakers Anthony Davis.

Jefferson, a former NBA champion, called out Davis and said he is not a Top-5 player, because of his injury issues.

“No one calls him a top five player. They call him a top five talent. A top five talent is one of the most disrespectful things. The reason why I call you a top five talent and not a top five player is because top five players do it every single night,” Jefferson told former NBA player Gilbert Arenas.

Anthony Davis missed significant part of the 2020/21 season due to injury, but he is now fully healthy and ready to go, as the Lakers want to bounce back after a disappointing first-round playoff exit last year.
