Before the Pelicans’ Game 4 loss to Golden State, Gentry paid his star big man the ultimate compliment.
Alvin Gentry says Anthony Davis has some Tim Duncan DNA in his game. Also thought it was cool that Davis said Duncan used to talk to him during games and try to help him with his moves. https://t.co/1Wzf0USru2

Via ESPN’s Nick Friedell:
“I think any time you have a superstar player like AD—I think he’s got like Tim Duncan DNA.
“He’s just a low-maintenance guy, loves being around the guys, likes being part of the team and just wants to be one of the guys that’s part of the team.
“And I think any time you have that, you’re probably going to have a closeness on your team.”
