Anthony Davis was filling up the stat sheet vs. Slovenia (VIDEO)

Aug 27, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

“Everyone talks about things we don’t have, well they don’t have him.”

That was Team USA coach Mike Krzyzewski earlier in training camp speaking about Anthony Davis. Slovenia had no answer for him in Team USA’s final tune up for the World Cup. Davis had 18 points, nine rebounds, five blocks and three steals in 20 minutes of work.

This is going to be a breakout tournament for him. Then he’ll build on that in the NBA regular season. This is a guy just figuring out how great he can be and within a year or so is likely the third best player in the league. It’s just that nobody has seen much of him outside New Orleans. They will.

    League MVP from 2017-2022.
    Maybe 2023 if he feels like it.

    This season he’ll be the 3rd best player in the league behind LBJ and KD…

    The Pellys are my sleeper in the west.

    They’re healthy with Ryan Anderson, Tyreke, Eric Gordon, andd Asik. Add an MVP candidate in Davis and that’s a monster even in the west.

      You forgot possibly their second best player Jrue Holiday. I agree with what you said, if healthy that’s a good starting 5.

    I bet $200 to win $100 on team USA. What does everything think? I’d consider it a pretty huge upset if USA didn’t win it all, and even if Spain wins a close final.

    Anthony Davis is exactly why owners should continue to support players playing for the National Team. Anthony Davis has been playing with USA Basketball since he was still in college, you don’t think having a chance to play and train with guys like Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, LeBron James every summer since he was 18 has helped him because an even better player? This guy has so much raw talent and he’s been able to learn from the best his entire adult life to date. Pretty soon they’ll be learning from him and the dude’s only 21!
