Former NBA champion Metta Sandiford-Artest (formerly Metta World Peace and Ron Artest) is impressed with the Los Angeles Lakers superstar Anthony Davis. He is convinced that the 27-year-old power forward will reach even higher level over the next five years.

“I think over the next five years, entering Hall of Fame status. I didn’t even realize how good he was. … He’s just really good. I didn’t realize he was that good. He’s so good. The sky’s the limit, definitely,” he said on Lakers Talk with Allen Sliwa podcast, via Robert Marvi of Lakers Daily.

This season, Davis is averaging 26.7 points, 9.4 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game. The duo of him and LeBron James is one of the most dominant in the NBA. The two helped the Lakers take the first place in the Western Conference.
