Lakers’ superstar Anthony Davis compares rookie Evan Mobley to his younger self


Los Angeles Lakers superstar Anthony Davis faced rookie Evan Mobley for the first time Friday night, and he praised the Cleveland Cavaliers’ rookie after the game.

“This is my first time seeing him play, to be honest. He’s probably the same size I was coming into the league,” Davis told reporters, per Chris Fedor of

“Pretty skinny. Elite shot-blocker. Lob threat. Kind of has some of the same things I had when I was coming into the league. But probably shot it a little bit better than me.”

Mobley had the best game of his young career vs. Anthony Davis, putting up 23 points, on 10-of-16 from the field, along with six rebounds, three assists, and two steals.

Davis entered the league as a preordained No. 1 overall pick, a big with guard skills entering the league as one of the most tantalizing players of the future.

Mobley has a long way to go before he reaches Davis’ level, but if Davis himself is to be believed, Mobley is certainly on the right track.
