Anything you can do, Anthony Davis' wiry, lanky arms can do better.

After getting crossed up by Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams, the New Orleans Pelicans wunderkind did the only thing he could—send back D-Will's jump shot so he could put home an easy two in transition:

Is going up against Davis even fair anymore? Aren't opposing players better off slinking away in shame immediately rather than going through the formality of attempting a shot he's bound to block?

I would say yes, only because it's getting to the point where his 7'5.5" wingspan is right up there with Justin Bieber and a country-wide bacon shortage on the list of things that are guaranteed to ruin an NBA player's day.
