Davon Reed’s Unforgettable Encounter with LeBron James
One player who can certainly attest to LeBron James’ unparalleled skills is Davon Reed. In a recent appearance on the “Beyond The Press” podcast, Reed openly praised LeBron, deeming him the “toughest player to guard” among other notable NBA superstars like Kevin Durant and Paul George.
“I’ve guarded KD, I’ve guarded Paul George. Easily has to be LeBron James. My rookie year, in Cleveland. And Bron is my favorite player. And I’m ready for that rematch. But he posted me up like 5 times in a row, and it was either like a scoring error, and-1 like 4 or 5 times in a row. Just nothing I could do, he was just too strong, too quick. And it went fast, it was like a surreal moment, because that’s my favorite player. It wasn’t like I was giving him anything easy, but he definitely put me in my place. And I’m looking for that rematch.”
Davon Reed may not like the superstars he mentioned, but he’s had the privilege of defending the King on the court. Fondly reminiscing about his rookie year, Reed vividly recalled how LeBron James consistently posted him up during a game. Although he has guarded other exceptional players like KD and PG, Reed emphasized that LeBron truly stood out.
