Anthony Davis has already exceeded expectations as an offensive player, showing he's capable of contributing points without using the dribble or the ability to create.
What you have to love about Davis so far is his activity level. He's got incredible athleticism, length, mobility and coordination, and he doesn't let any of it go to waste. Davis is active in the half-court, making plays above the rim as a finisher, rebounder and shot-blocker.
He's proven to be a lot more versatile offensively than we thought. Davis is spending some time on the perimeter as a target in the drive-and-dish game and attacking the rim as a face-up threat.
Defensively, he's blocking nearly two shots a game and looks every part of the two-way player he was portrayed as.
Injuries have slowed him down, but they're not going to affect his grade. New Orleans should be pleased with what it's seen so far.
