If you go through the University of Kentucky basketball record books, Anthony Davis has his name written in numerous sections and categories. He had one of the most decorated single seasons in college basketball history.

One record that will likely never be topped is Davis’s single-season record of 186 blocked shots, averaging 4.7 blocks per contest as a freshman.

In his time in the NBA, things aren’t much different, as Davis has averaged 2.4 blocks per game over the course of his six years in the league.

And this year, The Brow himself came home with the top block of the entire 2017-18 NBA season.

In the official NBA account’s top 60 list of swats, Davis came in at No. 1:

Davis had three of the top blocks, followed by DeMarcus Cousins with two, and Bam Adebayo and John Wall each with one.

Here are the rest of the BBNBA members and their nasty blocks on the year:

While we’re at it, let’s look at Davis’s block highlight reel from his time at Kentucky:

    It’ll be fun to watch Zion trying to dunk on AD.

      Lol, and they were making a big deal about how he made threes in his first game. Did anyone watch? They bounced on the rim multiple times before going in. Luck.

      And if Zion was at UK, you’d be calling him the best freshman of all time.
