A KSR reader passed an interesting stat along to me this morning and it’s too good not to share. Anthony Davis is the 39th best shot blocker in Kentucky history. That’s not for one season, either — that’s all-time. ALL-TIME. Think about that for a second. Anthony Davis has only played in eight games in his career. He’s averaging 4.5 blocks per game. If he keeps swatting shots at that pace (or even close to it), he’ll be top five all-time with Jamaal Magloire, Melvin Turpin, Sam Bowie, and Andre Riddick.
Magloire, Turpin, and Riddick were four year players; Bowie left after three. Davis is on his way to joining them in the top five after just one season.
Oh, and he’s No. 1 in career field goal percentage (67.24%). I know it’s early, but that number probably won’t be dropping too much lower if the lobs keep going his way.
