The Hawks Met Their Match In Anthony Davis

The Atlanta Hawks, a team that has swallowed up the rest of the Eastern Conference by playing a near-perfect imitation of Spursian super basketball, took their 19-game win streak to New Orleans last night to face Anthony Davis and the Pelicans. The Hawks may be an unrelenting monster, but they met a monster-slayer in… » 2/03/15 12:01pm 2/03/15 12:01pm

Anthony Davis Volleyball Spikes Manu Ginobili's Shot Straight To Hell

If you put your ear close to your laptop speaker and turn the sound up high enough, you can actually hear the ball itself screaming in terror, just before Anthony Davis pounds it into the parquet at the speed of light. Great googly moogly. It actually traveled back in time on its way down. Manu's lucky that damn… » 12/26/14 11:50pm 12/26/14 11:50pm

Man, Did Anthony Davis Whomp The Shit Out Of The Thunder Or What

There's no one particularly SportsCenter-y highlight from Anthony Davis's 38-point, 12-rebound, three-block eruption against Oklahoma City last night. He didn't block all three shots in one leap; or tear the entire backboard off the stanchion with a dunk; or, like, spike a dead-on-arrival Kendrick Perkins jumphook… » 12/22/14 12:42pm 12/22/14 12:42pm

The Best NBA Players Win 50 Or More Games By Their Third Year

Outside of the occasional planetary destruction of a Beast Mode run or five-inning save in Game 7, football and baseball don't really lend themselves to pinning a team's wins and losses on a single player. But basketball is a little different. Quarterbacks don't play defense and baseball actually isn't a team sport,… » 11/17/14 3:00pm 11/17/14 3:00pm

Kobe And The Lakers Do Dumb Shit; Anthony Davis Dismisses Them

The ridiculous, bad-basketball-playin'-ass Lakers lost again last night, 109-102 in New Orleans, to fall to 1-7. Basically, they performed how you might expect them to on the second night of a road back-to-back: they won the first quarter with some fluky hot shooting, then sagged badly in the middle quarters, then… » 11/13/14 11:24am 11/13/14 11:24am

Anthony Davis Comes Out Of Nowhere For The Putback Dunk

Welcome to the latest edition of Anthony Davis Does Something You've Never Seen Before. Today we have him launching himself from just in front of the dotted line, extending his Groot arm to collect a shot that clanged high off the rim, and then throwing down the putback dunk over poor Zach Randolph—all in one fluid… » 11/04/14 9:33am 11/04/14 9:33am

Anthony Davis Still Improving Should Terrify Opponents

LeBron James's return to Cleveland was the biggest story of the 2014 NBA offseason, but in the not-so-distant future we may be referring to it instead as the summer of Anthony Davis. With almost none of America's big stars playing in the FIBA Basketball World Cup, the 21(!) year old power forward anchored the… » 10/29/14 1:08am 10/29/14 1:08am

Anthony Davis Instagrams St. Louis Cops Arresting Some Guy

49ers offensive tackle Anthony Davis didn't suit up for the second week in a row because of a sprained MCL, but that doesn't mean he wasn't involved in any action. While walking off the field after the 49ers win, Davis documented this arrest of a fan who claims that he only wanted to get an autograph. » 10/14/14 12:42am 10/14/14 12:42am

Anthony Davis Catches/Steals Alley-Oop, Goes Coast-To-Coast For Dunk

Here's Anthony Davis casually catching an alley-oop—Basketball Twitter is saying he invented the block-steal, but you can't block an alley-oop before the oop happens, c'mon—and then dribbling to the other end for a dunk during a USA Basketball scrimmage. He's still a mutant basketball player of terrifying skill. [… » 7/25/13 9:45pm 7/25/13 9:45pm
