Team USA wants Anthony Davis to be a leader

Last night, I told you how much Coach K has been impressed with Anthony Davis’ development over the past year, calling his defense “phenomenal.” Turns out that Coach K and the Team USA staff want more than just good defense from Davis; they want leadership. Check out this interview with Anthony in which he opens up about his new role on the team.

Davis told reporters later that he took some of the things he learned last summer back to his team in New Orleans:

“It was great. I didn’t play much. When I was sitting there watching, I was taking in a lot of detail and a lot on how the guys work; how they felt on the floor. I brought that back to New Orleans and it’s helped me a lot, helped the organization a lot. All the stuff that I learned we’re just trying to express to these guys (on the Pelicans and at the minicamp). It’s fun. You want to be on a team like that. It’s very fun and very humbling.”

Another random Davis note: it turns out that one of my friend’s relatives lives next to Anthony in New Orleans now. She sent me this picture of Davis’ new house, and said he’s incredibly nice, as is his mother. Don’t worry, I’ll be using her as an inside source from now on.

    Mrs. TT since we are in the slow part of the summer it would be nice if you all brought back the “where are they now” posts. I noticed the link for it on the left of the page and that you all only did it on 3 people. Just a thought, I figured it would be a good space filler.

    Nice house. For his sake, you should at least blur the street sign.
