NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has been very active in social media in recent times, answering every question fans have about his whole career, the current NBA and his personal life.
On Wednesday night, Kareem had a little Q&A session with fans on Twitter and he made some bold statements. One of the most interesting questions he received was to say which player of the current NBA emulates his style of play the most, and the 72-year-old picked a player from one of his teams in the association.
“Anthony Davis is the player that I mostly resemble but I never shot 3 pointers like he does.. However all other aspects of his game are similar to mine,” he replied.

AD has been one of the best big men in the league for quite some time now. The former University of Kentucky player is widely regarded as one of the best players in his position not only right now but in history.
After spending his first seven seasons in the league with the New Orleans Pelicans, AD was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers last summer, in a move that helped both teams.
Before the NBA suspended the season, AD and the Lakers were dominating the NBA, becoming the best team in the league after big wins over big teams.
Some people say there is indeed a resemblance between KAJ and Davis’ styles of play, but right now the Brow is far away from The Big ‘A’ in terms of accolades.
