At 8:00 pm central, NBAtv will air live the USA basketball scrimmage. Per Jim Eichenhofer:
Subject to change but Anthony Davis on blue team; Jrue Holiday+Ryan Anderson white team.
Reportedly, Davis has been one of the most impressive players in camp, flashing a consistent outside jumper and stellar defense. Even the usually tight-lipped Mike Krzyzewski, couldn't refrain from saying:
"The very first thing [I noticed about the big men in camp] is how much Anthony Davis has developed," Krzyzewski said. "One of the reasons he was on the Olympic team was because we look and see he’s a guy who is going to get a lot better and hopefully be on a number of teams. His defense in yesterday’s practice was outstanding."
In addition, Davis sounds quite excited about playing alongside Holiday next season:
A new moniker, a new roster and now an upbeat and, more importantly, improved franchise player? It's definitely the dawn of a new era in New Orleans, one that promises more hope than we've likely seen since Chris Paul and crew almost pushed their way into the Western Conference Finals 6 years ago.
So tune in tonight and catch a glimpse of what the near future holds. Geaux Pels (or as Zach Lowe prefers - Pellies)!
