The avalanche of praise could be overwhelming and will surely shift if Davis fails to capture a championship by his seventh or eighth season, a phase James had to overcome and in which Durant currently exists. But Davis refuses to get caught up, lest it consume him to impatiently chase what might be unattainable or distract him from what he has already set out to accomplish. “I just go out there and play. What people expect of me? That’s on them,” Davis said, recently. “I don’t pay attention to all the stuff that they’re saying because that kind of messes with your head and you start getting complacent. That’s for the fans to read it and listen to it. My objective is to help this team win.” Washington Post

I'll echo the thoughts of renowned NBA bettor Haralabos Voulgaris about Anthony Davis. The SportVU cameras tell us that Davis averages 5.2 close touches per game, which ranks 25th in the NBA. How is that not higher? I mean, Tim Duncan averages twice as many in fewer minutes. It always seems New Orleans' ball handlers look for Davis only as a bailout option when they foolishly leave their feet with nowhere to go and frantically chuck it in his general direction. Davis deserves better. ESPN.com

He had 27 points and 14 rebounds against the Cavaliers, and you nearly didn’t notice him at all. Two days earlier, in San Antonio, Davis had hit a layup to beat the Spurs and cap a 27-point, 11-rebound performance against the defending NBA champions. Then, he came into the event that is LeBron James, and he was remorselessly efficient in his play. His head remained so level, you could bowl on it. “I just try to stay within the system, within the game,” he said. “I just got to be confident in myself. Patience is a huge part. I don’t chase shots or anything like that. I just let the game come to me, and it’s a lot easier to play that way.” Grantland
