From one MVP candidate to another. Anthony Davis rose up and absolutely yammed one on Giannis Antetokounmpo.
On this play, the Greek Freak missed a three-pointer that was quickly corralled by Lakers star LeBron James. In a flash, the King threw a full-court pass to the Davis who leaked out after defending Giannis. Davis took one dribble before launching from the key with both hands. Antetokounmpo raced back to contest but got posterized by the Brow. As both players landed, Giannis looked away while Davis screamed and stared the reigning MVP down.
The Kobe 4 that A.D. wore in this game was the “Protro” version, which slimmed the heel shape and increased the range of the traction. The heel Zoom Air and soft phylon foam remained in the cushioning, providing lightweight bounce when landing on the heel. The upper features synthetic leather uppers, with Flywire panels in the midfoot for added lockdown.
