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 Today 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 did… » 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

This Mediocre Kentucky Team Offers Hope That John Calipari Hasn't…

With their win today over No. 11 Florida, the Kentucky Wildcats will probably make the NCAA Tournament. Normally UK achieves that designation by late November or so. Kentucky missed the Big Dance in 2009, but it'd been 1991 since the Cats last weren't invited to March Madness. They hold the NCAA record with 53… » 3/09/13 6:48pm 3/09/13 6:48pm

Hornets Coach Monty Williams Hates The Sound Of His Own Complaining…

Last Friday, Hornets rookie sensation Anthony Davis suffered a mild concussion after taking an elbow to the head from his teammate, Austin Rivers. As a precaution, Davis was not allowed to fly with his team to Chicago on Saturday. Hornets coach Monty Williams was not happy about that, and expressed his displeasure in… » 11/05/12 3:05pm 11/05/12 3:05pm

This Photo Of Team USA Sleeping On An Airplane Is The Best Thing Today

Kevin Love surreptitiously snapped this and posted it to Instagram, as Team USA flew from Barcelona to London last night. From right to left, front to back, that's LeBron James, Chris Paul, James Harden, Russell Westbrook, Deron Williams, Anthony Davis, and even Mike Kryzyzewski, back in business class. » 7/26/12 3:25pm 7/26/12 3:25pm
