As the 2013-2014 NBA pre season comes to a conclusion, the New Orleans Pelicans have high hopes for their 2012 top draft pick Anthony Davis. In the 2012-2013 season Davis missed 18 regular season games and fought minor injuries all year long. Davis was able to turn his season around after the all-star break by averaging 15 points per game and 9 rebounds per game. Davis averaged 28.8 minutes per game, 13.5 points per game, nearly 2 blocks per game and 8 rebounds per game last year. Davis told ESPNChicago.com that his two goals this year was two stay healthy and to make the playoffs. Davis is ready to take on any role head coach Monty Williams asks of him, and if that is to slide over to the center position he will do just that. Davis has gotten off to an incredibly hot start this preseasons by averaging 24.5 points per game, 7 rebounds per game, 2 blocks per game and is averaging 27.7 minutes per game. With the new talent the Pelicans front office has added around Davis this off-season there is no reason, baring any injury setbacks that Davis shouldn’t have a career year this year. The Pelicans should challenge for a playoff spot if everyone stays healthy and Davis will be the center stone of the Pelicans playoff run.
