Anthony Davis was not the only former Kentucky player to show well for himself last night in NBA pre-season action, but he is the first one we are going to highlight on KSR this morning. Davis and his young Hornets team matched up against the defending NBA champion Miami Heat. Although it was just a pre-season game, Davis showed why he was the #1 draft pick. Davis finished the night with 24 points and 11 rebounds. Darius Miller had a nice night for the Hornets as well. Miller logged 16 minutes, draining both of his 3-point attempts while playing very strong on the defensive end.
Davis tweeted that he enjoyed playing against his “bros” LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. James had some kind words for the young Davis, his former Team USA teammate: “Yes sir! Way to ball up”
