“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.
