Metta World Peace Blog: Anthony Davis is Unspoken Leader of Team USA
I love working together as a team. But, there is always one person that naturally has the intution and intelligence required to anticipate what your team members will need in order to succeed as a group. That’s what I feel about Anthony Davis right now during the FIBA World Cup games. Davis knows where the shot will be taken before it happens and can block anything coming at him.
Spain is going to be our toughest competitor. We have skillful guards but if we want to get the cup, then we have to make sure our defense is concrete. This is where we must emphasize the role of DeMarcus Cousins; he is physically strong and can hold down the big guys.
Good luck to Team USA basketball!
