Anthony Davis (NOP) “AD” | “The Brow” nike

(Derick E. Hingle/USA TODAY Sports)


NOP Power Forward: 6’10, 253 lbs; 6th year, Kentucky 

NBA Role: two-way new wave superstar 

Anthony Davis: the newest breed of superstar; rewarded with a 5 year/$145 million deal, AD has been outstanding during his brief, injury-free time in the league and features a ceiling comparable to NO ONE in recent memory; with added range on his J & versatile moves facing the rim (quick jabber-Js, soft floaters, driving dunks), AD has turned the corner into stardom offensively; on defense, he rotates well for swats on the weak side but is not yet a padlock one-on-one; very injury prone, which is the only thing that’s held Davis back; ok passer, though not gonna judge too harshly until ‘Nawlins surrounds him w/ better talent; infamous growth spurt (shot up to 6’10 heading into his senior year of HS) allowed Davis to retain his agility and guard skills in a power forward’s body, giving him an advantage over, well, everyone; featuring ‘created player’ size, length and speed, Davis is the prototypical big for the league to emulate – NOP’s undisputed franchise player and a top 5 overall talent, AD & the Pels won’t be bad for long*

*Davis is just too good for NOP to finish in the bottom-5 – fully healthy, the Pels are a (near) playoff team, w/ 40-42 wins a realistic possibility 


Signature Move: jab step, midrange jumper
