It’s unclear when the Lakers forgot that Anthony Davis is a human pogo stick almost seven feet in length, capable of catapulting over any ol’ defender in front of him to smash a teammate’s errant shot. We don’t want to blame Pau — we’ll leave that for Lakers fans and LA Times beat writers — but Ant went berserker on a couple offensive rebounds during New Orleans’ 132-125 win at Staples on Tuesday night.

TAG: Anthony Davis
There were two heroes in Washington on Saturday night. The first was John Wall, who hit the go-ahead bucket to give the Wizards a lead over the Pelicans inside of a minute remaining. Then there was Nene, who tied his career-high with 30 points on the night, including a posterization of Greg Stiemsma. But it took both their efforts to finally win the game with 0.3 seconds remaining. Read More »
Since not every NBA player is in New Orleans, or every NBA writer (stupid weather), the vast majority of players have a mini vacation this weekend. Rookie Nerlens Noel went back to Lexington, Kentucky where he played a lone season of college ball. While in town, he spoofed a recent Anthony Davis Foot Locker commercial, and it’s a pretty accurate mock-up. Read More »
When Spike Lee announced that he was in discussions with Ray Allen about a possible sequel to He Got Game, every basketball head who dearly loved the movie wondered who could possibly be casted for the next film. Would Ray Allen come back as Jesus Shuttlesworth? Would Denzel Washington come back and take on the role of Jake Shuttlesworth? Read More »
The 63rd NBA All-Star Weekend will take place in New Orleans, bringing some of the biggest stars in sports and entertainment together. It is a time for players to have some down time and fun from their grueling schedules while fans get the opportunity to watch some of their favorite players on the same court.
What sets the NBA apart from other major sports that have All-Star events is that there is constant entertainment and events provided. The weekend ignites with a glimpse of the future stars of the league in the Rising Stars Challenge Friday night. All-Star Saturday night is perhaps the most entertaining venue throughout the whole weekend. The Shooting Stars Competition, Skills Challenge, Three-Point Shootout and the Slam Dunk Contest are all events that make up the night. All the parties, festivities and concerts Saturday night lead up to the game on Sunday. Read More »
Second year Pelicans forward Anthony Davis is going to be playing in his first All-Star game this Sunday. He can thank Kobe Bryant‘s left tibial plateaufor that. Davis will also be appearing in the Rising Stars Challenge on Friday night for Chris Webber‘s team. But judging from teammate Anthony Morrow‘s Instagram upload, the Brow wants a dunk contest invite, too. Read More »
The All-Star break is looming and there is a clear picture of which players have been living up to their standards and which have not; which players have burst onto the NBA scene in surprise and which have flopped under the pressure.
At the end of each season, the NBA honors the best players by naming them to the All-NBA Teams. There are three teams: First Team, Second Team and Third Team. Each generally consists of five players: two guards, two forwards and one center, voted on by a group of sportswriters and broadcasters. Read More »
The New Orleans Pelicans were in Toronto on Monday night, less than a week before hosting the 2014 All-Star Game, and things didn’t go so well away from home. The Pellies lost 109-101 on the road to a motivated Raptors team that’s currently in the No. 3 spot in the Eastern Conference. But late All-Star Game replacement, Anthony Davis, showed off his athleticism with a pair of alley-oops out of the pick-and-roll. Read More »
The length of Anthony Davis is overwhelming when you think about how easily and naturally he moves around the court. Guys that are 6-10 with a 7-5.5 wingspan aren’t supposed to be able to stay with point guards. Especially not point guards that used to be all-stars, like Deron Williams. On Sunday, D-Will found himself facing Ant and used his quickness to cross him up. But the Brow recovered in time to block the shot and immediately leak out for what turned into a breezy dunk on the other end. Read More »
