Anthony Davis, Devin Booker trade barbs over 2021 NBA Playoffs

Anthony Davis, Devin Booker trade barbs over 2021 NBA Playoffs

Leading up to their rematch of last year's first-round playoff matchup, Anthony Davis gave Phoenix some fresh bulletin material when he confirmed his belief that the Los Angeles Lakers would have beaten the Suns had he not gotten injured, according to Dave McMenamin of ESPN.

After the Suns throttled the Lakers 140-111, Devin Booker took exception to Davis' words, as he clapped back saying that what-ifs are a part of the game and Davis was better off letting go of what happened.

ANALYSIS: "If ifs and buts were candys and nuts, we'd all have a Lakers-Suns playoff rematch to settle this" or something to that avail. Booker's statements are true, but it's not like Davis went out of his way to say this. He was asked a very specific question, and he answered honestly. On both sides, you can understand both feel the way they do. Davis was a key component of an NBA champion, and Booker played a part in beating said champion the next season. Both have identifiable reasons to feel the way they do.
