Former Cats Anthony Davis and Demarcus Cousins have been named to the Team USA's Olympic team's initial roster, so let's start this post off with a huge congratulations to the both of them. It's well deserved.
Now to the point of this post....
First off let me start by saying that I never thought in my life that I would have a picture of this man on my site, it physically hurt to post it.
Upon the announcement that Anthony Davis had been named to the Olympic team's initial roster, Coach K, who will once again be Team USA's head coach had some very nice things to say about the former Cat...
"Anthony's trajectory as far as improvement keeps going higher and higher and higher. He's not your normal big guy, because he's very, very fluid. He can guard probably every position, but what I love most about him is his athleticism and his ability to block shots and finish. I'm excited about the (American) post (players), because we have more guys there than we've had before. Davis is really one of the emerging stars of the NBA. For this group, he can be a great rim protector for us, and an amazing ball-screen defense guy, because of his mobility. He can step in and if necessary, even switch and guard a number of players.
His offensive game continues to improve. We're going to run, and he can really run the court well and finish. He's just a terrific young man. He also is only 20 years old. He'll be 21 in March. He's a star and he's going to be a great, great player."
Say what you want about Coach K, but he definitely knows the game of basketball and to have him say those kind of things about you means something.
