Anthony Davis and Thomas Robinson are expected to be the top two picks in the upcoming NBA draft. Though Davis is the consensus No. 1 pick and expected to be a franchise-changing player, Robinson believes he should be the top pick. The former Kansas forward even took a shot at Davis earlier this month after Davis was seen wearing a T-shirt that said “Check my stats.”

“If you wanted to check the stats, then I’d be the No. 1 pick easily — if that’s what you want to do,” Robinson said, according to Sam Amick of Sports Illustrated. “I should get one of those shirts. I’ll get a shirt that says, ‘Numbers don’t lie.’”

Based on that back-and-forth, it looked like there was a beef brewing between the players. Not so, says Davis.

“There is no feud,” he told The Dan Patrick Show on Tuesday, laughing at the question.

“He’s the coolest guy and most positive guy I’ve ever met,” Davis continued. “I don’t know if he has a feud with me, but I have no feud with him.”

When asked specifically about the T-shirt quote, Davis brushed it aside.

“We never talked about it. Actually, I did talk about it, and he said he didn’t say it.”

Davis reinforced the notion that they get along well by saying he’ll be spending more time at the draft together with Robinson than any other player.

Davis also told Patrick he got a ton of heat for saying he wanted to be a Kobe stopper, but that won’t keep him from continuing to challenge star players.

Davis rooted for the Heat to win the title so critics would get off LeBron James’ back, but he’s also looking forward to guarding James.

The interview was good, but Davis needs to improve his speaking skills to become a better product endorser/pitch man. He was difficult to understand at times. At least he comes across as a nice guy and has plenty of time to improve those skills.
