First of all, I would like to extend a congratulations to Kansas and Kentucky. They both have excellent coaches, Bill Self of Kansas and John Calipari of Kentucky, and both teams have great talent on their team led by some All-American post players, Anthony Davis of Kentucky and Thomas Robinson of Kansas. It’s going to be a great game and it’ll definitely be wonderful for the fans in News Orleans to enjoy.
Okay now that I got that out the way, now let me tell you what I really think about the game. Honestly, I’m not really concerned about the outcome of the game. I’m a LSU fan and the men’s basketball team was nowhere near the NCAA tournament so I have no one to root for but I will be rooting for one person in particular and I hope he has a monster game: Anthony Davis. Anthony Davis is a beast in the making with his great shot blocking ability at almost 5 blocks a game as a freshman and as he develops a more consistent offensive game, he is primed and ready to be a NBA star. My New Orleans Hornets are having a pretty down year especially after the departure of star guard Chris Paul and the team is just 13-40 this year thus far. I give them credit though, even though they are undermanned and on most nights just plainly outmatched, the Hornets scrap and fight and never show any quit. The record might not be great but I like that they just haven’t mailed it in and said forget the season.
Mr. Davis would look very lovely in some Hornet colors. We could possibly have the opportunity to get him because we will definitely be in the lottery next year and somebody like Davis could steer us in the right direction. The Hornets are currently owned by the NBA and is for sure to have an owner by next season and it can be a fresh start with Davis and any other young player we get. Hornets have a high possibility to have two picks in the top 10 in the upcoming draft because they have the rights to the Minnesota Timberwolves first round pick and it’s not lottery protected and as of right now, the Timberwolves’ record is 25-29 and have dropped their last 10 of 14 games. This will be the first time I ever really payed attention to the NBA lottery announcement and if I hear David Stern say those words, “The winners of the lottery are the New Orleans Hornets and now own the first pick in the draft,” I will begin to get real happy and get my Anthony Davis jersey ready for show because this guy is the real deal and can really be a centerpiece for our franchise for years to come.
