There's not much of an argument with Kentucky freshman sensation Anthony Davis going first overall in two weeks.
Davis—besides being blessed with all the physical talents in the world—piled up nearly every accolade you can think of during his one year in college: National Freshman of the Year, National Player of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year and NCAA tournament Most Outstanding Player, among others.
Davis is a supreme player and showed glimpses of having the complete package while at UK. His ability to play on and off his man defensively is unparalleled. His 186 blocked shots—the record for an NCAA Division I freshman—is evidence to the fact that Davis has an uncanny ability to jump on guys when they take midrange shots.
Listed at 6'10", Davis will have the chance to be one of the most dominant power forwards in the league for years to come. Also, while the offense wasn't dictated around him at UK, Davis was a pretty good ball-handler and showed that he can, at times, take his man off the dribble and to the rim.
In high school, Davis was 6'3" and played point guard, so he's had experience at running the floor.
Davis will be a wrecking ball of havoc on the defensive end right out of the gate. His offensive game will also come along, and when it does, Davis could be one of the best players in the NBA for years to come.
