Anthony Davis is averaging 35.3 points on 64.8 percent shooting from the field while also adding 15.6 rebounds and 2.9 blocks over the past nine games.
The Los Angeles Lakers have turned around their season with Davis playing like an MVP candidate.
"To win a championship," Davis said when asked whether his goals for the season now include earning his first league MVP. "That's it. If your mindset is on winning a championship, the rest will take care of itself. That's always been my thought. I put the team first over any individual awards or accolades that come with it. So if we continue to do what we do and win basketball games, the rest will take care of itself."
"He's been unbelievable, man," LeBron James said. "On both sides of the floor. I mean, playing like the MVP of this league. Just straight dominance."
