At this point, any time we see a nationally known writer express suprise at the exceptional talent of Anthony Davis, we think long and hard about blocking them.* When The Unibrow™ dropped 30 points and snatched 15 rebounds against the Dubs last night in the bac kend of a TNT double-header, some have claimed it was Ant’s big introduction to the world.

Anthony Davis is a known commodity and MVP contender, so lets stop pretending we all didn’t know this already. Read More »
