The New York Times predicts Anthony Davis to be the next “Superstar”

(CelticFanChat.com)

As the biggest names continued to pull out of the Team USA picture heading into the FIBA World Cup, Anthony Davis’ significance and importance to the 12-man roster continued to grow. Now that the roster has officially been set, the young Davis is poised to be one of the leaders and best players on the entire roster. For a guy who was 19 and the last one off the bench two years ago at the Olympics, the quick jump shows how his stardom is emerging rapidly in the world of professional basketball.

The New York Times had a great article in yesterday’s paper that essentially opened the door for the conversation that Davis might be the superstar on this edition of Team USA. Davis could wind up being the catalyst for whatever run this team makes in the FIBA games.

On his incarnation of Team USA, Davis will have plenty of room to prove himself. His teammate Stephen Curry said, “It’s a great opportunity for him to be one of our featured big men, and a huge catalyst for what we’re trying to do.”

In early exhibition games, Davis has created highlights on both ends with sledgehammer dunks, spectacular blocks and some jump shots off plays designed to get him those shots. With the dearth of quality big men on Team USA, Davis may be Team USA’s most vital contributor. 

In 2010, Durant, then 21, led a young United States team to the world championship. That summer, it became clear to the world that Durant would become what he is today: one of the greatest players of his generation.

Davis, next in the line of freakish talents like James and Durant, now has his chance.

“You don’t become special unless you want to be,” Coach K said. “But he’s got everything.”

    The sun will rise tomorrow and the New York Times is located in New York. They’re really going out on a limb with this headline.
