After Davis sent a congratulations text message to Durant for winning the prestigious honor, Durant returned a respectable message of his own to Davis.
“You on your way to get it,” read Durant’s text message back to Davis.
Davis was encouraged by ther All-Star's comment and it motivated, the former UK star. Davis explains how it felt after the message.
“It was shocking,” Davis said. “For a guy who knows what it takes to win an MVP award, telling me that I’m on my way, it means he sees something in me. That means a lot, especially from one of the best players in the league right now, if not the best. It just meant a lot. It made me want to work even harder.”
Having 21 NBA players from Kentucky in the league you might see more than one former Kentucky player become a MVP.
My picks for future NBA MVP's that played at Kentucky are:
1) Anthony Davis
2) John Wall
3) Demarcus Couisins
I believe one of these three have the best chance to win the honor within their young careers.
