Thread: Tim Duncan mentoring Anthony Davis?

  1. #1

    Tim Duncan mentoring Anthony Davis?

    Although Davis gained valuable experience playing alongside elite stars LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant on the U.S. Olympic team this summer, he said another major help came in August when he participated in volunteer workouts with his teammates against the Spurs' players in San Antonio.

    Davis got a chance to work against Duncan. Davis said during the scrimmage work, Duncan pointed out different situations such as where to go if the post has been taken away by a crowd of defenders.

    "Tim is a great player and does a lot offensively and defensively,'' Davis said.
    "I know I can look up to him and he reached out to help me. That was one of the big reasons I went down there.''

    Sounds like Timmy reached out to Davis and wants to help him. Can't think of a better role model for AD than Duncan...

    For sure. Another guy you should add to that list is Tyson Chandler. I think he helped him a lot in terms of post defense. The Olympics was an amazing opportunity for him - learning from all of those guys, practicing against them, watching their work habits/demeanor on the court. We are seriously lucky Griffin got injured.

    Duncan is a big one though... Perfect guy for him to talk to and learn from.

    No doubt on that count. Duncan was a star who never took the focus of off his team or created off the court distractions. That's a perfect template for Davis.
    With purple and pinstripes from days gone by, I trumpet Hugo's name to the NOLA sky. When rebranders and posers abuse their might, beware my power, TEAL LANTERN'S LIGHT!

    Forever hating the nickname, the logos, and the colors. Still backing the team I've loved since 1994.

    Stolen name. Stolen colors. Stolen identity. Still the same old worthless Slobcats. Suck sludge, Charlotte.
