Anthony Davis shines in Rising Starts challenge.
Pelicans power forward Anthony Davis played great in the rising stars challenge. He finished the game with 16 points, four assists, three steals and two blocks.Also, he had a few flashy dunks. Even though he played great his team Team Webber fell to Team Hill 137-132. Under the new Rising Stars game format two former NBA greats pick from the leagues first and second year players. The NFL has went with this format, in the Pro Bowl. I think this new format is alright, but i kind of liked the old format better. Speaking of new formats, the NBA Slam Dunk competition new format is horrible. 3 players from each conference and go head to head. First conference to win three head to head battles win the dunk contest. So instead of being every man foe himself like it should be, its become more of a team competition. It makes me not want to watch it as long as the keep this format.
Ok, I’m finished ranting about the new formats. Anthony Davis played a heavy amount of minutes, which really surprised me, because he will be playing in the All-Star game as well. Since the All-Star weekend is in New Orleans, of course Anthony Davis got the most cheers from the stands in the Smoothie King Arena. Yes if you’re wonder the New Orleans Arena has a new sponsor in Smoothie King. Anyway, even though this was an exhibition game just for fun, Davis doing well in games like this can get his career going in the right direction. He was drafted number one overall after winning a national championship at the University of Kentucky. He is the face of the franchise. I believe soon he will become an NBA MVP type caliber, the sky is the limit for this kid.
