Ever since the 2020 championship title won by the Lakers, Anthony Davis has shown he is an elite player and one of the NBA's best, but his injury record has prevented him to get the recognition he deserves.

The NBA media and many fans have disrespected the star because of the 'fragile' and 'street clothes' narrative that has been sold about the Lakers star, which is funny as he has more games played since 2019 than fan and media favorites like Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Paul George, and Kawhi Leonard.

But now an 'old' Lakers rival, the Boston Celtics legend Kevin Garnett, has the belief that AD will be rewarded soon with the MVP title over the likes of Joel Embiid and Nikola Jokic.

“Guess what? I’m expecting Anthony Davis to be MVP in these next two years or something real shit. It’s time bro. It’s time. You can’t let Joker [Nikola Jokic] come into the league and surpass – nah, nah, nah. Man, shit. Anthony Davis can do everything they can do. Anthony Davis can do everything that Joker can do. He can do everything [Joel] Embiid can do. The f**k you talking about, dog? I’m expecting him to be MVP if not this year, definitely next year, straight up. And he’s going to take the reins of, ‘Yeah, I’m the best player in the league.’" Said Garnett via Showtime Basketball.

What Anthony Davis needs to do to be considered for the MVP award

This past season was the second healthiest season for Davis since joining the Lakers, playing 56 games, which is only less than 2019-20 when he played 62 games. If he can stay healthy in 2023-24 and play 65+ games then it is not far-fetched to say Davis will be in the MVP conversation, but that is big if.
