22-year-old Anthony Davis has been proclaimed the next NBA superstar as he was projected to carry the momentum from last years top five MVP finish into the 2015-16 season. Many expected Davis to lead the Pelicans to the playoffs and possible make some noise in this years post season but the Pelicans’ season hasn’t gone as planned to this point. The New Orleans Pelicans only had 21 wins heading into yesterdays game against the Detroit Pistons and many anticipated the visiting Pelicans would be leaving the Palace of Auburn Hills with yet another disappointing loss but nobody could of predicted what would occur.
As Anthony Davis would remind us of his exceptional talent by turning in a memorable performance. Lighting up the Pistons defense for a franchise record 59 points to go along with a measly 20 rebounds. Not bad huh? While Davis and the Pelicans have a lot more work to do if they have any hopes of slipping into the postseason, yesterdays record setting output was definitely a step in the right direction. Is this a sign that we will be seeing a more assertive Anthony Davis in the second half of the season? We will have to wait and see about all that but regardless of what happens you can’t hate on the ‘brows’ incredible performance.
