Shaquille O’Neal Praises Anthony Davis For Breaking His Record

Anthony Davis broke Shaquille O'Neal's record of having the most 35+ points and 15+ rebound games in the 2000s.

The record only considers games played in the 2000s, and not before that.

Davis scored 35 points and grabbed 17 rebounds in just 33 minutes against the Pelicans.

He achieved the feat with an impressive 61.1% shooting accuracy from the field.

This game was his 35th such game, thus surpassing Shaq's previous record.

Shaquille O'Neal posted a graphic on Instagram congratulating Davis for breaking his record.

This is a rare move from Shaq, who has previously criticized Anthony Davis on several occasions.

Davis has been a key player for the Lakers, helping them win the NBA championship in 2020.

With this achievement, Davis has further solidified his position as one of the top power forwards in the NBA.
