    This is awesome, first though a quote from Marc Stein:

    Marc Stein ‏@ESPNSteinLine
    Most significant development in rout of Team GB? Going zone, w/freedom to roam, might just have given a role on this team to Anthony Davis
    Now onto this article with quotes about AD:

    Coach Mike Krzyzewski
    Your views on Anthony Davis’ play tonight?

    Well he’s a developing pro. He’s the best college player in the country, I really thought by far. He wasn’t sure he was even going to be on the team. He joined us almost 10 days late, so he’s catching up, getting the knowledge of our system. Tonight, he played really well. When we went zone, the physicality of the game did not enter into his game. He was able to roam free and that may be a weapon for us – we go zone and have Anthony in the middle because he can certainly block some shots. He did a great job for us.

    Tyson Chandler
    Is Anthony Davis a polished NBA player already?

    No, no, he’s not polished yet. But he looks really good out there. It shows that he has a bright future ahead of him. I was really excited for him. Just getting thrown out there, I thought he did an excellent job

    Do you think with Davis, he’s showing young kids that defense is as important as offense?
    Absolutely. He has great potential on both ends. He has a great opportunity to be a great defender, as well as on the offensive end.

    Deron Williams
    Your views on Anthony Davis’ play tonight?

    I just think like Coach said he’s a young player. He’s already a proven player at the college level, and he’s trying to prove his way on with us. His athleticism, his energy level – those things you can’t really teach. What he does with the amount of floor he covers on defense is amazing, and he doesn’t even really know how to play the game yet. Once he figures out that, he definitely can be a scary player, a franchise player. You can tell.

    I'm so excited and optimistic about the future of this team. This time we're building around our franchise player the right way.

    I think he just has a late Al Davis type of mentality... too wrapped up in the combine/workout numbers. Drummond's measurements across the board are greater than Davis. Even a longer wingspan. And of course in the case of the NBA... measurements/potential is an even bigger deal when it comes to the draft than it is for the NFL.

    It clearly doesn't make him a better basketball player though.
    I'm assuming this line is about me? If this was true than I would be much higher on Davis. The 3 big guys with the best measurables were Perry Jones, Andre Drummond, and Anthony Davis. You could throw Miles Plumlee in there also.

    To your other comment about me knowing this about Davis is actually correct. I've never said Davis was going to be awful. I just really liked this draft class. I've said on multipule forums and multipule occassions that Davis has very special skills defensively, is a great athlete, and that he has a quality jumper. My questions has always been his post defense and his ability to create his own shot. Which will be key if he is ever going to be a franchise player. Which is why I see him as a Serge Ibaka type as opposed to Kevin Garnett or Tim Duncan.

    7th best player in the draft. No doubt.

    I'm watching the game now, and have watched the previous 2 games. Honestly, Davis has looked a lot better than Kevin Love. He seems to have transitioned to the international game much better which is suprising. Now i'm not saying he's there (better than Love) yet, just an observation so far.

    Phantom showing Davis' pass, one of his dunks, and the best block that led to a breakaway (billed as one of his biggest strengths and it's in full force).

    I was at the game last night and it was good to see AD get some playing time. He made a lot of great plays on defense that turned into easy points on the other end. If anyone wants pictures from the game send me a message

    Anthony Davis looks great. I am impressed after watching the game against Great Briton. He's going to be great.
