Anthony Davis is in absolute beast mode every time he is on the basketball court.
I honestly feel sorry for opposing players. Davis was able to block 4.7 shots per game in his rookie season. He also grabbed 10.4 boards a game and scored 14.2 points per game.
Keep in mind, that Davis was only a freshman this year and he was considered not only one of the best defensive players in the nation, but one of the best players overall as well. He also led the Kentucky Wildcats to a national championship. No big deal, a freshman is expected to do this. Not!
The reason that Davis could be an Olympic athlete, though, is the fact that he can play multiple positions on both sides of the court.
Davis also isn't the shortest player in the world at 6'10'', and the U.S. team could really use his size.
What makes him most valuable to the Olympic team is his defensive abilities. Davis affected opposing teams like no other this past season. Just his presence in the paint alone caused other teams to be completely disrupted.
