Is this really fair? I think we all know who will be Rookie of the Year once the season is over. Anthony Davis is the consensus choice for ROY and here is why.I was not on the Davis bandwagon in the beginning. I didn’t think he was that good, even though he was an obvious game-changer in his only season at the University of Kentucky. I mean the dude averaged nearly five blocks per game, that’s insane. He didn’t need to score or get touches. Simply, he just seemed to enjoy playing basketball.
But here is where my opinion changed about Davis.
Once Blake Griffin injured his knee and Davis was selected to take his spot, I was thinking “this is his opportunity to represent his country and show what he can do.” Though he didn’t play as much I wanted him to, or as much as he liked, Davis showed that he wanted to learn just as bad as he wanted to play. Being around Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Chris Paul and other did Davis wonders, even though they pulled some pranks on the young kid. He al...

With ESPN’s First Take morning show growing in popularity (for better or for worse), resident personality Skip Bayless has become the apparent villain of sports media. In the spirit of having fun at Bayless’ cost, here’s video of 2012 NBA no. 1 overall pick Anthony Davis dunking on a cardboard cutout of Skip Bayless at the NBA [...]
Anthony Davis was just interviewed on ESPN’s First Take and shortly after that he is dunking on Skip Bayless. Bayless is very unpopular among many athletes because of want he says. So far I haven’t heard Bayless said anything bad about Davis but that didn’t stop Davis from dunking over a cutout of Bayless.
The New Orleans Hornets got a big break when they won...

Is there one athlete that likes ESPN’s Skip Bayless? Hornets number one draft pick Anthony Davis had an interview recently on Skip’s show, First Take. It seemed to be a pretty standard but perhaps Davis had some pent up aggression he wanted to get out. Check out Anthony Davis dunking over a Skip Bayless cut [...]

More Exposure for the New Orleans Hornets
Few love him, many hate him and some tolerate him but make no mistake about it, ESPN's Skip Bayless and his show "First Take" is watched by many mainly to see and hear what outlandish thing he and his co-host, Stephen A. Smith aka "Screaming" A. Smith, have to say on the world of sports and especially the NBA.
For Bayless, he exudes cockiness, and a...
Robin Lopez says he's always seen himself as a defense-first big man who can grind out low-scoring games.
The 7-foot center suspects that's why the Hornets, with defensive-minded coach Monty Williams, made a trade with Phoenix to acquire him last month.
Lopez is currently rehabilitating from an operation to repair a torn meniscus on the same left knee that has bothered...

Drafting Anthony Davis with the first overall pick ensured New Orleans had a future. That is what the top pick in the draft can do, especially one with unbounded talent like Anthony Davis.
A championship roster takes more than just a superstar building block. It takes the patience of putting the right pieces around him and the coach to lead.
This summer New Orleans got its...
