At 22-years-old and with so much NBA life ahead of him, Anthony Davis is both the most promising player in basketball while also an NBA team's safest investment.

Here are 10 NBA players that would love to make it work with Davis and possibly work their way to a championship.

Bye-bye Andrew Bogut, hello Anthony Davis. They say if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, but you have no idea the Frankenstein’s monster LeBron James is building out east. Put Curry on a team with Davis and live to fight King James again.

The Washington Wizards need a stretch-four like the deserts need the rain and Congress needs sensibility. Instead of drafting an unproven Bobby Portis, make a move for an NBA-proven Davis.

Let’s get analytical — whether in Houston or the Big Easy Harden and Davis would complement each other well in terms exclusive of facial hair. Harden will find Davis and Davis will stretch the court even wider for Harden, perhaps turning the idea of a “Big Three” into a Texas two-step.

Mr. Inside (Davis), say hello to Dr. Outside (Durant). You two will get along with full doctor-patient confidentiality.

Durant may depart, and if KD doesn’t team up with Davis, why not pair Davis with Westbrook? With Westbrook the spark plug and Unibrow the engine, this well-oiled machine could coast into the playoffs.

Smart likes to roll with smart. Between Green and Davis is near Hawking-levels of basketball IQ. Also between Green and Davis is two players that can play five positions. To me, that’s elite basketball economy.

Davis would be like Shaquille O’Neal but with none of the ego-induced headaches. Kobe Bryant may have one year, and Davis may take “the leap” during that time. Which is just in time for Bryant to ride the wave in a third unique and final capacity as a Los Angeles Lakers’ player.

Would Chris Paul pull a bizarro-LeBron and head back to New Orleans? Probably not, but could Davis be wooed to LA. Probably yeah.

Let Davis do the heavy lifting in the paint and let Carmelo Anthony thrive doing his favorite thing — sinking comfortably isolated 18-footers.

There are zero rational NBA players that don’t want to play with either James or Davis. So why not boil it all down to joining James with Davis? Although LeBron is becoming more of an isolated wing player, could you imagine the handful of times when James and Davis run the pick and roll? It’d be so perfect you wouldn’t be able to look at it directly, otherwise you'd risk being turned into a timid pile of salt.
