Monty Williams Says Anthony Davis “Could Easily Go For 40 and 20″

Monty Williams, Anthony Davis

At this point, tempering expectations for Anthony Davis is futile. Very few players in history have ever averaged 25.5 points, 11.4 rebounds, 3.9 blocks, and 2.3 steals per game while shooting 57.9 percent from the field, and none have done so as 21 year-olds. It’s too early to say whether or not Davis will sustain those mind-boggling statistics – not to mention a would-be record 36.1 PER – over the full season, but it doesn’t even really matter. The New Orleans Pelicans’ superstar is on his way to a legendary career, and has the basketball world re-thinking the limits of potential in the process. Read More »

GIF: DeMarcus Cousins Threads The Needle In Another Kings Win

DeMarcus Cousins

The Kings keep rolling and we couldn’t be happier for the people of Sacramento, who have waited more than a decade for a semi-return to prominence. They were even slated in to a national TV slot last night when they defeated the Bulls, 103-88, behind 22 points, 14 rebounds, four assists and one steal and block for DeMarcus Cousins. One of his dimes shows off all the things he’s improved since coming into the league in 2010. Read More »

K.J. McDaniels

The Philadelphia 76ers are 0-11 to start the season and it’s getting so bad some people think a dominant college program could beat them in a seven-game series (they can’t).

But things might be getting a whole lot worse for the rook after his mom took to Twitter last night without a filter to lament her son’s lost season. Read More »
