NBA legend Charles Barkley believes that Anthony Davis is the key to the LA Lakers winning the series against the Warriors. Barkley shared that his height and length will play a huge part as Golden State doesn’t have enough personnel to counter the Lakers’ height advantage.

Chuck also shared that Davis’ play will help LeBron James tremendously.

“If they go small, it’s gon’ help AD even more. It’s gon’ help LeBron, too. He’s going to be posting up all night.” Barkley said.
