New Orleans Hornets rookie Anthony Davis' rookie season has been solid, but not spectacular. While it may not have lived up to the heightened preseason expectations, the No. 1-overall pick's first year has had its bright spots.
"The Unibrow" didn't turn around the Hornets' fortunes in his first season. He won't even finish this year as the NBA's top rookie, as Portland guard Damian Lillard seems to have a lock on Rookie of the Year. For all of the hype, Davis' big games have been few and far between.
However, he's managed to show glimpses of being the franchise cornerstone he was drafted to be. As of March 24, Davis leads all Hornets in rebounds (averaging eight boards a night) and blocked shots (just under two a game).
His offensive output has been a work in progress, as he's averaging just 13.2 points per game. Still, Davis has really come along as of late, averaging 16.3 points and 10.6 rebounds per game for the month of March.
If he and guard Eric Gordon can manage to stay healthy, the future looks bright for this New Orleans tandem. Let's take a look at some of the highlights of Anthony Davis' rookie season.
