Jared Dudley Says He’s Taking LeBron James Over Anthony Davis 1-on-1

Los Angeles Lakers veteran Jared Dudley joined “The Ryen Russillo Podcast” on Wednesday and answered a question that many Lakers fans have likely pondered themselves.

That question was who would win in a one-on-one matchup between LeBron James and Anthony Davis.

According to Dudley, James would be the one to get it done.

“I’m gonna go LeBron,” Dudley said after thinking it over in his head for a few seconds. “I’m gonna go LeBron in the sense of his 3-ball to build space out and when he goes one way, you got to understand man, when defenses are playing against him they are so loaded to the basketball. Anthony Davis is phenomenal, I just feel like LeBron would will his way in.”

He then almost immediately started to question his own answer. In the end though, he stayed with his original pick.

“I don’t know if that’s true,” he said of his prediction. “You asked me to pick one and if I’m picking I pick LeBron. I’m not saying it wouldn’t be close. I’m not saying Anthony Davis can’t beat him. You asked me to pick.”

There’s no doubt that this matchup would be one for the ages. With James’ basketball IQ and versatility and Davis’ incredible size and natural ability, a one-on-one matchup between the two would very likely fill up Staples Center just like the Lakers have done all season long.

Maybe, Dudley can convince his two superstar teammates to go at it to prove who would really win once and for all.
