Watching the NBA these days inevitably devolves into a generational battle over how today’s game is not as tough or good as the old days. There is always the old guard holding on to the style of play they played with.
Anthony Davis is certainly a representative of the new version of the NBA. The former Kentucky Wildcat missed out on the All-NBA team, and his team missed out on the playoffs this year, but everyone still believes Davis is one of the best players in the league.
In this inter-generational battle, who knows more about the other’s life and times?
On “Jimmy Kimmel Live” following Wednesday’s NBA Finals game, Davis battled the master of style himself, former New York Knicks champion Walt Frazier, in a game of “Generation Gap.” Kimmel asked the other questions about their generational divides — Frazier got asked about Coachella, Davis asked about Woodstock.
The results were some hilariously out-of-touch answers. They have a lot to learn about each other it would seem:
Davis needs to brush up on that history textbook to figure out what the New Deal is.
But Davis did come out on top, proving once and for all the younger generation is the best at naming random inane facts about the older generation on late-night talk shows.
