Anthony Davis, the No. 1 pick in the 2012 NBA draft, might be dating one of the Gonzalez twins. Which Gonzalez twin? I’m not certain. If you missed our story last month, the Gonzalez twins – two high school seniors who will be attending Kansas next year (with Andrew Wiggins!) – have already taken the baton from Skylar Diggins as the biggest deal in women’s college basketball for 2013-2014.

The unibrow of Anthony Davis has been on display all season here in New Orleans, and lately, basketball's Frida Kahlo has shown the nation why he was the No. 1 pick last summer. In the past 10 games, entering Monday's matchup against Denver, the Kentucky product had averaged 16.1 points and 10.6 rebounds for the Hornets. "He's gotten more comfortable with playing in tight situations — earlier this year, he wasn't as comfortable," Hornets coach Monty Williams said before tipoff. "He's learning how to use his quickness against guys who are stronger than he is, and he's learning how to play harder, and how that helps him in transition and defense. Denver Post

Me: Do you think it's been a benefit that Lillard has gotten a lot of the attention this year? Anthony Davis: He's playing well. He's playing extremely well. I don't know how many he had the other night, but they were big numbers. He's playing extremely well for Portland right now. I wish him all the success. He's going to be a great player in this league, and he's getting better and better each and every day. Every game, you can see how much the game is coming to him now, how much poise he has, being a young guy. I wish him all the success and hope he keeps getting better. NBA.com

Me: How scary was the concussion? AD: Very scary. I've never had one before, so I didn't know what to do, how to handle it. I think our trainer did a great job in that process, and made sure I was right before I got back out on the floor. Me: You've put up some numbers lately. Is the game getting easier? AD: I think it's slowing down. I'm starting to see a lot more than I'd seen before. Before I was playing really fast, just trying to go out there like, 'Oh, I'm the No. 1 pick, so I have to play well,' and tried to rush everything, make 'No. 1' plays. I'm just starting to slow down, see everything more. The game is just starting to slow down for me. As it's slowing down, I'm just trying to make big plays for my team, whether it be a shot, or a pass, or whatever the case may be, offensive rebounds, whatever the team needs. NBA.com

“How often do you get a chance to have the Super Bowl take place in the same city where you live?” said Hornets center/forward Jason Smith, explaining his decision to buy tickets. Smith is joined by Ryan Anderson, Anthony Davis, Eric Gordon, Robin Lopez, Roger Mason and Greivis Vasquez among Hornets players who bought Super Bowl XLVII tickets. Kick-off in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome – which is literally across Girod Street from the Hornets’ home arena – is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Central, giving players plenty of time to rest after a roughly three-hour flight from Minneapolis. Like several of his teammates, Smith said that his preference would have been to root for the Hornets’ NFL brothers, the New Orleans Saints. With no obvious reason to cheer for either participating team, Hornets players are split evenly between Baltimore and San Francisco. NBA.com
