New Orleans Pelicans’ Anthony Davis on Wednesday posted a video explaining why he was the greatest player in the NBA. He said according to him, he was the best player in the game and no one could convince him otherwise.

“In my eyes, I’m the greatest player in the game,” Davis said. “No one can tell me different.”

Whether Davis is indeed the best player in the NBA is up for debate, but he certainly ranks among the best. In the last five years, the 25-year old has averaged 25.3 points and 10.7 rebounds per game. He has appeared in the All-Star team in each of the seasons. He also holds the record for the youngest player to score 59 points or more.

To ensure neither Lebron James nor one of the top players at the Golden State Warriors dispute the claims, Davis made sure to clarify the opinion was his. It was not an objective claim but his personal opinion.

A lot of players are known to make such remarks as self-motivation. So, if that how the Pelicans’ centerman does it, there is nothing wrong about it by all means.
