Anthony Davis is having an MVP-caliber season, but Alvin Gentry agreed it'd be tough to for him to make voters' ballots given the Pelicans' struggles. "It's unfortunate for him, because to me he's having an unbelievable, MVP season," Gentry said. "When you think about what he's done and the defenses that he's faced, and still the numbers that he's put up. And not just the offensive numbers he's put up, but being able to lead the league in blocked shots. He's been really solid defensively in what we're trying to do. He guarded [Marc] Gasol and did a good job on him. All of those things right there, it's just unfortunate that our record is not better. Because I think if our record was better, obviously they we would be speaking about him being in the MVP race."
