That's a good way for him to look at it
http://www.hoopsworld.com/nba-pm-dav...uture-in-nola/Entering this season, top overall pick Anthony Davis was considered the frontrunner to win the Rookie of the Year award and expected to turn around the New Orleans Hornets. However, Davis has been sidelined for all but six games with a stress reaction in his sprained left ankle. On Friday, he’ll miss his tenth consecutive game, but it’s looking like he’ll return to the court pretty soon.
Davis hasn’t been medically cleared to practice yet, but he has been with the team and remained active. The Hornets have him on a rehab program as well as a developmental program. The 19-year-old believes he’ll be even better when he returns since he’s been observing and learning from the bench.
“Now, I’m starting to see the game from a coach’s point of view,” Davis told HOOPSWORLD. “I’m sitting on the bench, watching, looking at guy’s tendencies and seeing what they like to do. I’m seeing the flow of the game and what to do in certain situations. It’s helping me learn a lot. The coaches are helping me a lot and I’m watching a lot of film of myself and what I can do better. It just gives me time to rest and I’m just trying to learn from this and hopefully stay healthy when I come back.”
Davis couldn’t be happier in New Orleans and he’s hoping to experience success with the Hornets, or Pelicans, for years to come. “It has embraced me well – the city of New Orleans really loves me and I love the city of New Orleans,” Davis said with a smile. “Hopefully we can have this relationship for a long time. Hopefully we can turn some things around, and maybe win a championship later on down the line.” HoopsWorld
