Anthony Davis and the Los Angeles Lakers are off to a tremendous start ot the 2019-20 campaign. They enter Tuesday’s action against the Denver Nuggets with a Western Conference best 17-3 record.

Despite his stellar play on offense, Davis’ performance on the other end of the court in his first season with the Lakers is what has stood out.

It’s led to Lakers head coach Frank Vogel concluding that AD could very well win Defensive Player of the Year.
