Well, it looks like SLAM Magazine is fairly certain that the New Orleans Hornets are going to draft Anthony Davis with the first pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. Their recent issue has Davis on the cover in a New Orleans jersey.
Although it is not officially that Anthony Davis will be the first pick, I am pretty sure that there is no way that he will not be the first pick. If he gets hit by a bus in the next 3 weeks, that might change the pick but other than that, he will be in NO to start next season. Davis is a huge talent and should give the Hornets an immediate boost.
People say Anthony Davis will be the next Kevin Garnett, but I do not think he will ever end up being that great on the offensive end. However, I think his defense has the chance to surpass Garnett. That is saying a lot, considering Garnett is one of the better post defenders that this generation has seen.
Anthony Davis will be expected to bring the Hornets back to the playoffs sooner than later. The team has a new owner and there is a lot of buzz surrounding them. Bringing Davis into the fold can only help the team get back to the playoffs. I expect big things out of Anthony Davis and he could be a potential All-Star for years to come. That is something that Hornets truly need.
