VIBE caught up with the newest New Orleans Hornet, Anthony Davis, to ask who he’s excited to play with, his favorite song out right now, and what it was like working with Kentucky coach John Calipari.
Davis was the no. 1 overall pick in the 2012 draft, and is the odds-on favorite for NBA Rookie of the Year. The big man is known for his relentless work in the paint and for helping guide his Wildcats team to the 2012 NCAA Championship. Davis was named to the US Men’s Olympic basketball team in 2012, and earned a gold medal alongside current NBA superstars like Kobe Bryant and LeBron James. Now in New Orleans, he will be counted on to team with fellow first round pick Austin Rivers to lead the Hornets back from obscurity.
