Brett Dawson of The Oklahoman joins Travis and I on this week’s podcast to discuss all things Anthony Davis.

Dawson has ties to Davis dating back to his days in Kentucky with the Courier Journal, as well as his time at The Advocate. From initial buzz in the high school scene to his first days at Kentucky, Dawson was on Davis’ scent – saying he knew midway into the freshman campaign that this was a player who one day might be the greatest player in the world.

The TBW crew discusses how Davis has begun to knock on that door, forcing his way into the conversion beside LeBron James and Kevin Durant.

Dawson also compares and contrasts the Thunder and Pelicans in addition to his dealings with both Davis and Russell Westbrook.

  • What does Anthony Davis need to take the torch?
  • How much does his lack of hardware mean to him?
  • How soon could he change it?
