Who Is Anthony Davis

Strengths: Davis is a remarkable physical specimen, a legit 6-10 in shoes with a 7-4 wingspan that can run the floor with the speed and agility of a guard. He’s a fantastic defender and shot-blocker – he averaged 4.7 blocks per game as a freshman at Kentucky, a better per-game average than many Division I teams. But doesn’t simply swat shots into the third row; Davis has a knack for redirecting balls towards his teammates, saving possession.
He was tremendously efficient on offense as well, shooting over 62 percent from the field.
Weaknesses: Much of Davis’ offense at Kentucky came on breaks and lobs; he’ll need to show more at the next level to be a real offensive threat. He was billed as a pretty decent three-point shooter coming out of high school – a remnant of his pre-growth spurt days as a jump-shooting guard – but he didn’t show that much in college, hitting just 3 of 20 attempts on the year (.150). (Of course, there was no reason for him to float out to the perimeter when he was dominating NCAA big men.)
He’s listed at 220 points, which is wafer-thin for a near seven-footer, but he does have the frame to accommodate a bit more bulk.
Davis was the most dominant force on the most dominant team in college basketball, setting a new SEC freshman record for blocked shots and leading the Wildcats to a gaudy 39-1 record and the 2012 National Championship. He finished the season with averages of 14.2 points, 10.4 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 4.7 blocks; remarkable numbers for an 18-year-old freshman.
His efforts earned Davis unanimous first-team All-America status, the Wooden Award, the Naismith Award and Most Outstanding Player honors for the 2012 NCAA Tournament.
After a rash of injuries hit some of the established NBA stars – most notably, Dwight Howard – on Team USA’s senior men’s team, USA Basketball added Davis to the preliminary roster for the 2012 Olympic Games. He could potentially become the first college player to play in the Olympics since Christian Laettner on the original “Dream Team” in 1992.
Fear the Brow
Davis sports the most prominent unibrow since Frieda Kahlo – or maybe Bert from Sesame Street.
Don’t expect him to start manscaping once he gets that first big NBA check; the unibrow has become a Davis trademark… literally. His marketing agency has secured trademarks for the phrases “Raise the Brow” and “Fear the Brow”.
