Anthony Davis won a gold medal today. Oh, you already knew that? Well, he had a few comments following the big moment today. CoachCal.com has a few nice quotes from Davis about the experience:
“It’s a great feeling,” Davis said. “It feels like the national championship all over. Being on the court with these guys jumping up and down after we won with LeBron and Kobe, KD, and Melo, all the players on the team, a great feeling.”
“It was an opportunity for me,” Davis said. “I got better playing with these guys the last couple of months through USAB. I think I learned a lot from watching these guys from how they play, how they take the game, how they approach the game.”
Davis also talked a bit about the neat moment at the end of the game when he had the ball in his hands following the final rebound. Davis also had the ball in his hand at the end of Kentucky’s national championship.
Imagine for just a moment what it would be like to be a 19 year-old kid who just a few years ago was idolizing guys like Kobe, LeBron and Kevin Durant. And then today he got to jump up and down with them, celebrating an Olympic gold medal. Incredible.
