The youngster, youngest on Team USA, looks tall, athletic, talented, and ready to interject his will in a game. He’s Anthony Davis, 1st overall drafted by the NBA in the 2011-2012 season. He is the future of BIGS, as in he is the future of all centers to come into this game. I can’t wait to start watching him play in NBA; I’ll try to catch all his games.
Anthony Davis was invited and tried out for Team USA’s roster after most of the talented bigger players went down with injuries during the NBA Season. Then when Blake Griffin went down with a knee injury he made the team for the last spot. He’s worked well with the team, and the training is paying off dividends. His stock and talent can only go up from playing with some of the best players in the NBA; and playing against some of the best players in the World.
In the three games he’s played in for 12 minutes a game he averages 4 rebounds and 8 points a game. He’s giving them energy, versatile defense and high flying offense. Being the third tallest player on the team he’s able to give them high quality minutes, and he’s also staying out of foul trouble unlike the other two BIGS earlier in games. Although we haven’t seen him play for many minutes and we don’t know how vast his offensive skills maybe, at this point the sky is the ceiling. He’s gaining so much experience, great coaching, and learning the NBA through some of the top players.
When the NBA season starts again, he’ll be ahead of the curve, dominating at his position. Right now I have him as Rookie of the Year; no doubt that award goes to him. Good centers are at an all time low in the NBA, and with this kid he’ll bring so much to the team he’s on. I can’t wait till they let him go wild on the court; he could possibly even get Defensive Player of the Year. I think it’s possible for him to be an All Star this coming season also, depending on how good his numbers will be. I definitely have him on my mind, to vote him in if his numbers show him deserving. I just need him to fix his eyebrows, and get some veneers or something. That’s my only complaint, use that HUGE check they cut you!! Go young fella, go out there and become a dominate All Star like your teammates on Team USA!!!
