Watch Anthony Davis Explode For Career-High 43 Points On 16-23 Shooting

Anthony Davis might not be the league’s best defender. He probably isn’t the league’s best scorer, either. But if the 21 year-old superstar can maintain his incredible rate of growth, it seems only a matter of time until he owns both distinctions. Watch the third-year pro – whose pre-draft calling card was defense, by the way – explode for a career-high 43 points on 16-of-23 shooting in the New Orleans Pelicans’ 106-94 road win over the Utah Jazz on Saturday.

Is This Nate Robinson Dime The Assist Of The Year?

Nate Robinson

The degree of difficulty here is why we’re wondering if this might be the assist of the year. Nate Robinson is a scoring dynamo, so it was kind of shocking to watch him ignore a shot right at the rim to instead find JaVale McGee for the layup plus the foul. Except, it’s how Nate made it happen that’s so magnificent. Read More »

Watch JaVale McGee Give A Court-Side Fan A Smooch She’ll Never Forget

There are a lot of reasons fans write off JaVale McGee as wasted potential. The seven foot Nuggets center has become synonymous with on-court goofiness, so much so that Shaqtin’ a Fool could be renamed “Pullin’ A JaVale.” That being written, he’s also endearingly sweet, which he showed off during Denver’s big, 117-97, win over the Pelicans on Friday night.

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 »

Anthony Davis, Rudy Gay

Wednesday’s games are less than two hours away, but we’re still geeking out over last night’s epic clash between Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins. As the Sacramento Kings made an ultimately futile comeback attempt against the New Orleans Pelicans, Rudy Gay tested The Brow at the rim with a dunk attempt. How do you think that went? You’re right.

GIF: Incredible DeMarcus Cousins Chase-Down Block

DeMarcus Cousins, Jrue Holiday

Last night’s Pelicans-Kings game did not disappoint those people hoping to see two of the best young big men in the NBA today. Anthony Davis has become a basketball bloggers wet dream, and could be in MVP discussions for the next decade. DeMarcus Cousins, on the other hand, has gone from a league punchline to an unlikely MVP candidate in the first month of the season. Cousins, especially, has seen a marked improvement in his defense, as this chase-down block last night shows. Read More »

Maybe the most impressive aspect of this sequence by Anthony Davis is that it seems so normal. Obviously, we’re running out of ways to be amazed by the 21 year-old legend in-the-making – he’s the only player in basketball capable of making this play. Watch Davis show off his amazing combination of length, athleticism, and effort by blocking a LaMarcus Aldridge step-back and somehow maintain enough balance to tip Wesley Matthews’ jumper just a second later.

Anthony Davis

Man, either the Pelicans are better than we thought — we actually think Brow makes them a fringe playoff contender in the West — or the Timberwolves just weren’t ready to play on Friday night at the Smoothie King Arena in New Orleans. Jrue Holiday and Anthony Davis connected on a pair of alley-oops and the Pellies shot 66 percent from the field in the 139-91 stomping. Read More »

The Cavs came back to beat the Pelicans, 118-111, last night to avoid losing their second consecutive game at Quicken Loans Arena. Despite the loss, Anthony Davis showed why he’s become the profile de jure for NBA scribes this season. His overall performance in the loss — with 27 points (11-of-21 shooting), 14 rebounds, four assists, four steals and three blocks — still has fans and analysts alike salivating at his potential.
